Today John le Carré's TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY film from Focus Features hits movie theaters around the country...you know, not just in those select areas.
I was offered the opportunity to host a contest for the movie opening and I just couldn't pass it up. But before I tell you about the contest, take a gander at the movie trailer:
The film features Gary Oldman, Benedict Cumberbatch, David Dencik, and Colin Firth. It's directed by Tomas Alfredson
For those unfamiliar with the TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY story, it's set in 1973 and the MI6 (Britain's Secret Intelligence) seems to be compromised. The government believes there's a double agent at work. A disgraced MI6 agent is called in to help look for the spy, only he becomes one of the five possible suspects, code names: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Poor Man...and of course, the Spy.
You can check out the movie's Facebook Page, the Focus Features Twitter account and see more video at the YouTube channel.
And to celebrate this release, I have TWO fun prize packs. They include: a movie tie-in copy of the TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY book, a long-sleeve t-shirt, a voice recorder pen and a post-it note cube. Here's a picture of the spy swag:
I'm excited to be able to host the giveaway and thank the generous folks at Focus Features for providing the great prizes. I'm also really excited to see the movie (pssst! Did you see Colin Firth is in this movie! A spy thriller AND Colin Firth?). But I'm sure you want more giveaway details, so here they are: contest is open to U.S. residents - or if you know someone in the U.S. and you can use their mailing address, that works, too. Complete my short form below and leave a comment telling me what you would want your code name to be if you were a spy! I'll draw two winners next Wednesday, January 11th, so you need to be enter by the end of the day on Tuesday.
