Contest: Win a ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ Ultra HD Gift Set!

We have something kind of special to offer you in our latest contest. Not only did Lionsgate send us an extra 4k Ultra HD + Blu-ray edition of Luc Besson’s sci-fi epic ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets‘, it comes with a pretty sweet piece of swag. You’ve gotta take a look at this.

Offering no explanation for it, our giveaway copy came with a model of the heroes’ “skyjet” ship from the film. If this is available at retail somewhere, I’m not aware of what store is carrying it. Now it can be yours.

Valerian Gift Set

To win a copy of the UHD gift set, all you have to do is participate in our photo caption contest by giving us a funny or clever caption for the following image. Click to enlarge:

For example: “You just couldn’t stop and ask for directions, could you? Now we’ll never get to Fhloston Paradise!”

We have one copy of the gift set to give away. The winner will be chosen at our own subjective discretion based on whichever response we enjoy the most. Entries are limited to 10 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. (Please heed this limit. You will be taken out of consideration if you submit more than 10 entries.) All entries must be submitted in the Comments section of this blog post. Please do not attempt to email them to me.

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 Wednesday, November 22nd. The winners will be announced the following week. Good luck!

    Cara Delevingne’s Agent: “Cara, I just read the most wonderful script and the director wants you to play the lead. The character in it is a strong, independent woman who is complex, smart-as-a-whip and fully fleshed out. It only pays $100,000 but I really think this is the right move for you career.”
    Cara Delevingne: “Hmm, it sounds tempting. Any other offers I could take into consideration?”
    Cara Delevingne’s Agent: “Uh, well, WB has this other part that pays $5,000,000 in which you’d be playing a superficial damsel lacking in the department of insight and depth, ultimately making you an objectified pawn to the male gaze but…”
    Cara Delevingne: “Richard…Richard…what did we talk about?”
    Cara Delevingne’s Agent: *sighs* That the best thing we can do for female audiences is to take the highest paying work possible, then years down the road, disown said role, saying it poorly represents women, despite getting to keep the money in question and despite knowing what we were getting into.”
    Cara Delevingne: “Very good.
    *now speaking through her teeth*
    Now get me that contract.”

    Dane: I played the most one-dimensional, underdeveloped villain in a superhero movie ever!
    Cara: No, I played the most one-dimensional, underdeveloped villain in a superhero movie ever!
    Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Father: Kids, kids, you’re both…just…awful!

    Cara: I sure do love my white and gold dress.
    Dane: White and gold? Looks more like black and blue to me.
    Cara: …

    We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little Zyber. Wicked, tricksy, false!

    First things first. Where’s your shitter? I’ve got a turtle-head poking out.
    I’m not kidding. I’ve got a crap on deck that could choke a donkey. Aw, it’s squidgy. Christ, I’m gettin’ all emotional from it, ya know?

    Laureline: I’m not actually angry. This is just how I look when I chew 5 Gum.
    Valerian: But you’re NOT chewing 5 Gum!
    Laureline: Not with my mouth, I’m not.

    Bad news: your sexy face looks just like your pissed off face. Good news: they both turn me on.

    This holiday season, the North American Sex Toy Industry (NASTI) would like to remind you: when in doubt, use anal lube.

    The face you make when you realize your male partner looks better in your bra and panties than you do.

    Valerian instantly regretted telling his partner he voted for Trump.

    Severe constipation or Kellyanne Conway impression? You decide.

    Fifteen years later, the cancellation of Firefly still stirs up string emotions.

    You think I have Tulip Fever!

    I saw the tulips in the ship, you have a fever for Alicia now?

    Do you know how Lawless this is? You think we took this Amazing trip Through the Never to Chronicle the Fever at the Place Beyond the Pines, was a Cure for Wellness. It was to join a Suicide Squad, to Kill your Darlings, take the Leap man!
