He’s back! And so are we! Welcome back to Dork Shelf in 2013 as we kick things off with our first contest of the year! Dork Shelf and Alliance Films want to send ten lucky winners in TORONTO, OTTAWA, HALIFAX, and WINNIPEG to see an advance screening of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first starring role in well over a decade in THE LAST STAND on Wednesday, January 16th at 7:00pm.
Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in the hard-hitting US directorial debut from Korean director Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil), THE LAST STAND. After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Peter Stormare), Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow. Cortez’ path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.
The Last Stand opens in theatres everywhere on Friday, January 18th, but we want to send you to see it first! To enter, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with THE LAST STAND and YOUR CITY in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. For additional chances to win, simply like the contest announcement on our Facebook page and/or re-Tweet the announcement from our Twitter. Deadline for entries is 5:00pm on Monday, January 14th.
Good luck and get ready for another great year of news, reviews, interviews, and contests here at Dork Shelf!
