Contest Time Is Here Again. Win ‘Black Swan’ on Blu-ray!

Isn’t it about time we had another contest? I think so. How about we give away some free copies of ‘Black Swan’ on Blu-ray? Follow after the break for the rules on how you can win!

I’m sure you already know what ‘Black Swan’ is. The movie just won Natalie Portman an Oscar and was also nominated for Best Picture. In case you’ve been living in a cave cut off from all human contact for the past year or something, here’s the studio PR blurb:

Starring Natalie Portman in her Academy Award® winning role*, BLACK SWAN is a seductive yet haunting film that will leave you breathless. Directed by innovator Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler), this Best Picture nominated film boasts a wealth of talent including Portman (Closer), in the performance of her career, as well as Mila Kunis (Date Night), Winona Ryder (Girl, Interrupted) and Vincent Cassel (Ocean’s Twelve). In the film that Daily Variety hailed as “…wicked, sexy and ultimately devastating… fascinating,” Natalie Portman’s mesmerizing transformation into the Black Swan leaves you breathless – and wanting to see it again. Become part of the haunting phenomenon and own BLACK SWAN on Blu-ray or DVD on March 29th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

BLACK SWAN follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman), a ballerina in the New York City Ballet trying to make it to the top. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis), also impresses Leroy and becomes Nina’s competition. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly with her innocence and grace, but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan with her fiery personality. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.

And here’s the trailer.

Freaky, huh?

The movie is being released on Blu-ray tomorrow, but we’ve got two copies to give away.

How do you win? That’s simple. We’re doing this as another photo caption contest, because those are always fun. All you need to do is come up with a funny or clever caption for the following image, then post it in the comments.

The caption can either be a made-up line of dialogue or something that describes the image. Something like, for example:


Yeah, that’s right, I just took that one. So you’ve got to come up with something even better. The winner will be chosen at our own subjective discretion based on whichever response we enjoy the most. We have two copies of the Blu-ray to give away.

Entries are limited to 10 captions per person. That should give you plenty of opportunity to craft a good submission, but will also help us to avoid any potential appearance of awarding prizes based on volume rather than quality.

This contest is only open to entrants from the domestic United States. We will not ship internationally (whether you’re a U.S. citizen or not). Employees of High-Def Digest or Internet Brands and their families are not eligible. Standard contest rules and conditions apply. People who have won any of our previous contests within the past one year are also not eligible to win, but may get Honorable Mentions.

The deadline for entry is this Friday, April 1st. The winner will be announced next week. Good luck, everyone!

    Damn it! I wanted those bricks to be red, to match my eyes, not off-gray! This is the worst dressing room ever!

    If switching to Geico could really save you 15% on car insurance, does Natilie Portman play a ballerina perfect to obtain an Academy Award?

    “I KNEW I shouldn’t of eaten those brownies at Mila’s house!”

    “For dry, red eyes, clear eyes is awesome…”

    If this whole ballet thing doesn’t work out maybe I can try out for Princess Lea in the Star Wars musical.
