Closed: Win The Escapist on DVD

TheEscapist.jpgThe Escapist is a British thriller starring Brian Cox, Damian Lewis, Joseph Fiennes, Laim Cunningham, Dominic Cooper and Steven Mackintosh, all great actors and making for a superb line up of talent. The film tells the story of a convict who is twelve years into his sentence without possibility of parole when his estranged daughter falls ill and he wants to fix things with her before it's too late.

Well his only chance to do that is to escape, and he creates an ingenious plan in which to do so, enlisting a group of inmates who hate each other, but want to escape. The film looks a corker and I'm about to sit down this weekend and watch it, but in the meantime you have the chance to win one of three copies of the film.

The excellent Brian Cox plays the lead, the man who has nothing to lose in life and just wants to see his daughter one last time to make peace with her, and with his bunch of misfit fellow convicts he hopes to escape from the prison through the underground sewers of London, and do just that.

Brian Cox won a BAFTA Scotland Award for the Best Acting Performance in Film in 2008 for The Escapist and it also was awarded a British Independent Film Award for Best Achievement in Production.

I've just been given three copies of the film to hand out to lucky competition winners, and I'm really looking forward to seeing it. You can check out the official site for more information and see the trailer over there in multiple formats including high definition.

So, if you fancy a chance of winning this British thriller on DVD that also carries an audio commentary with writer/director Rupert Wyatt and actor Dominic Cooper and three featurettes - a making of, a behind the scenes and a storyboard, just enter the following competition.

The competition is open for those with a UK postal address only, and each winner will be randomly chosen from the correct entries. The competition closes on the 23rd of February 2009.

To win simply answer the following question and email me at competition@filmstalker.co.uk with the answer and your UK postal address before the closing date of the 23rd of February. Here's the question:

What famous serial killer did Brian Cox play so well in Manhunter?

Yes, it's that easy. Get that question right and you could be winning a copy of The Escapist on DVD. Good luck!

For those of you who don't get so lucky, or if you just want to check out the DVD details, here's The Escapist DVD on LOVEFiLM or Amazon.co.uk
