Contest: Win Harry Potter Swag!

Daniel Radcliffe is watching you

Next week the new Harry Potter flick hits. July 11th. Between now and then you can win some swag. Got that? Not a lot of runway, so stay awake.

What can you win?

We’re giving away a prize pack that consists of a theatrical poster, a teaser poster, a logo pen, a tattoo (please assume that it’s a temporary tattoo even though the Warner Brothers rep didn’t specify), and a tank top for women.

Two other winners will snag a theatrical poster and a teaser poster.

One last winner will get a theatrical poster only.

So four prizes to win. But since you can only enter once a day, just eight chances to enter if you start now. So go for it.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Never Before Has a Tagline Been So Accurate

Here comes trouble, all right

In a move that will surely negate all of the points Jason Lee has acquired over the years, he is apparently playing Dave in an Alvin and the Chipmunks film, where the boys…well, let me just put it to you this way: don’t click this. You honestly, seriously, don’t want to know.

My arch-nemesis Neil Cicierega could make a better Chipmunks movie than this. In his sleep. I mean, he already did a pretty good one while he was awake. (Find it on his site here.)

I think we can sum up everybody’s take on this after the break.

Kwik-E-Marts Bring a Bit of Springfield Closer to Your Home

Kwik-E-Mart live and in person

In what’s probably the best promotional bit we’ve seen for a film in some time, certain 7-11 locations have become Kwik-E-Marts. And as you can see in that Flickr set, they sell all manner of Simpsons items: Squishees, Krusty-Os, donuts out the wazoo and more.

If you don’t have one in your neighborhood, don’t worry: I’m sure eBay is going to be flooded with all manner of stuff from this stunt over the next few days. So you’ll be able to shell out exorbitant amounts of coin to get the swag.

All things being equal, though, I’d love to try/review a can of Buzz cola. So somebody hook me up, yes?

Contest: Win a Copy of the Once Soundtrack

DVD cover art for the Once soundtrack

Our friends at Filter are back with three copies of the soundtrack to the movie Once.

A modern day musical set on the streets of Dublin. Featuring Glen Hansard and his Irish band “The Frames,” ONCE tells the story of a street musician and a Czech immigrant during an eventful week as they write, rehearse and record songs that reveal their unique love story.

The Czech immigrant is played by musician Markéta Irglová. You can find the poster and some music videos for the film in our press release section here.

If you want to win one of these copies of the soundtrack we have lounging about, I suggest you enter the contest.
