!! OMG, a contest: Win tickets to the premiere of ‘Burlesque’ !!

OMG, calling all Cher and Xtina fans: Tweet to win a pair of tickets to the Los Angeles premiere screening of BURLESQUE on Monday November 15. Contest details are below!

Ali (Christina Aguilera) is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to LA. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), the club’s proprietor and headliner. Burlesque’s outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day.

Soon enough, Ali builds a friendship with a featured dancer (Julianne Hough), finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer (Kristen Bell), and garners the affection of Jack (Cam Gigandet), a bartender and fellow musician. With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and gender-bending host (Alan Cumming), Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane) arrives with an enticing proposal…

!! OMG, win a ‘HOWL’ movie poster autographed by James Franco !!

OMG, this is a good one… Win a HOWL movie poster autographed by James Franco and directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman! See details below.

Oscilloscope Laboratories presents HOWL

James Franco is Allen Ginsberg

The obscenity trial that started a revolution / / The poem that rocked a generation

“HOWL makes Ginsberg’s words and imagery sing.” – Instinct Magazine

James Franco stars as the young Allen Ginsberg – poet, counter-culture adventurer and chronicler of the Beat Generation. In his famously confessional, leave-nothing-out style, Ginsberg recounts the road trips, love affairs and search for personal liberation that led to the most timeless and electrifying work of his career, the poem HOWL. Meanwhile, in a San Francisco courtroom, HOWL is on trial. Prosecutor Ralph McIntosh (Strathairn) sets out to prove that the book should be banned, while suave defense attorney Jake Ehrlich (Hamm) argues fervently for freedom of speech and creative expression. The proceedings veer from the comically absurd to the passionate as a host of unusual witnesses (Jeff Daniels, Mary-Louise Parker, Treat Williams, Alesssandro Nivola) pit generation against generation and art against fear in front of conservative Judge Clayton Horn (Bob Balaban).

HOWL is simultaneously a portrait of a renegade artist breaking down barriers to find love and redemption and an imaginative ride through a prophetic masterpiece that rocked a generation and was heard around the world.

The film is in theaters now. Check www.HowlTheMovie.com for local listings. In Toronto, it’s playing at the Bell Lightbox through Wednesday October 13.
THE CONTEST: Dress James Franco up in your love! Terry Richardson recently photographed James Franco in drag for Candy magazine, but we don’t think he looked very pretty. Find a photo of James and Photoshop (or MS Paint) him into drag. You don’t have to be skilled, just be creative, and make James look prettier than Terry did.
THE RULES: Email your entry to [email protected]. Contest entrants must have a USA or Canadian shipping address. All submissions fall under our submission policy.
THE DEADLINE: This Sunday October 10 at 11:59pm
THE PRIZE: A HOWL movie poster autographed by James Franco and directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. There is only one winner for this contest.
We will post the winning entry and runners up next week!
