GI Joe (4 years ago)
So guys, have you seen GI Joe?

I'm really interested to know what you thought about it!
So did anyone get them? I know they sold out FAST.
Hey guys, it's been awhile!

Thought you all might like to know:

SYDNEY (27 March 2009) – Paramount Pictures Australia will release a strictly limited allocation of special tickets for sale for the World Premiere of J.J. Abrams’ (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: III, LOST, ALIAS) action adventure STAR TREK at Sydney Opera House on April 7.

Those who succeed in buying tickets will be the first members of the public in the world to see this hotly anticipated film.

They will have the opportunity to walk the red carpet that will also welcome director/producer J.J. Abrams and cast members Eric Bana, Chris Pine (SMOKIN’ ACES), Zachary Quinto (HEROES) and Karl Urban (THE BOURNE SUPREMACY) on their first stop of a world tour to promote the film.

Those who purchase tickets will then join invited guests in the Concert Hall of Sydney Opera House for the first film premiere to be held in this particular performance space of Australia’s most iconic building.

“Although we have a tremendous demand for tickets to this event, we are delighted to be able to make some tickets available to the general public so that they can share in the excitement of this unique World Premiere screening of STAR TREK here in Sydney,” said Mike Selwyn, Managing Director of Paramount Pictures Australia.

The limited allocation of tickets will go on sale from 9.00 a.m. Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) on Monday, March 30 and will only be available online via www.sydneyoperahouse.com or by phoning Sydney Opera House box office on +61 2 9250 7777.

Tickets will be $100 each plus booking fee and each ticket purchase will entitle the purchaser to a bonus souvenir STAR TREK theatrical poster.

About J.J. Abrams’ STAR TREK

From producer/director J.J. Abrams (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: III, LOST, ALIAS) and screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (TRANSFORMERS, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE:III) comes an inventively reimagined story based on creator Gene Roddenberry’s original television series, widely regarded as the greatest space series of all time.

The STAR TREK cast includes John Cho, Ben Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Chris Hemsworth, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Winona Ryder, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin; with Eric Bana and a cameo by Leonard Nimoy, who first portrayed Spock.

STAR TREK opens in Australian cinemas on May 7, one day prior to the US release on May 8.
Well friends, this is the next film I'm promoting. Opens in a couple of days from now... who's interested in it?
OK, so I told a porky pie... the stuff is going out to the three lads today, not yesterday. You'll see what I'm sending when you get it icon_smile.gif

That's all for the Eagle eye stuff.
El Taco, Sambo and Blink, it's your lucky day.

PM me here on the forums with your addresses.

I'll sort you out on Monday.
No sign of Husseyadaddie and Teknohead?
OK, Husseyadaddie and Teknohead -- you have one week to email me your name and address. Remember, you're down for the major prize pack -- like Obsolete just got. It's not too shabby! icon_smile.gif
Heh, hold your horses for now, guys icon_smile.gif

If there are any goodies left at the end of the promo period, I'll get my hands on them and share the love; similar to when there were some leftover Tropic Thunder t-shirts and I gave them away one time icon_smile.gif
Hey guys, still waiting on:

Husseyadaddie, Teknohead and Benza to be in touch.

I need your addresses, guys... email me icon_smile.gif

was that the '94 line-up? pretty effing sweet indeed, esp the early pumpkins!
Yup, it was an incredible day.
Re: Big Day Out 2009 (5 years ago)
I know some folks probably like these bands, but the line up looks kind boring compared to the first one I went to:

Smashing Pumpkins
Teenage Fanclub
The Breeders
Cruel Sea
Def FX
Straitjacket Fits
Urge Overkill
You Am I
DJ Pee Wee Ferris
The Meanies
OK guys, I've had a word to the Paramount people and because there were so many good entries, I'm going to give out more prizes than I said. Please email me at rob.irwin@networkpr.com.au with your forum name, then your real name and address for me to send prizes to:

PRIZE PACK (mouse, headset, double pass):



Judging has now begun...
Re: Entourage (5 years ago)
I've been a big fan since the start. I'd talk about it to friends and they'd think I was insane. Now they kinda get it a bit more. I hope it doesn't run forever, though. I like show's to do a good 5 years or so, then finish on top, rather than dragging out to 9 or 10 very boring seasons.
Some great entries so far, guys.

Just remember, judging at midday October 1 icon_smile.gif
Competition: Eagle Eye (5 years ago)
OK guys, time for a big one.

You're all excited about Eagle Eye, so I've got a major prize of a mouse, Bluetooth headset and a double pass to see the film for ONE lucky winner and FOUR double passes for runners up.

How do you win this amazing swag? Glad you asked. This isn't first past the post for a change.

I want you to post IN THIS THREAD your weirdest technology story. That is, something that happened to you, involving technology, that was weird. For example, the time your VCR electrocuted your Uncle Bert at Xmas, or something.

I will choose the major prize winner and the four runners up at midday October 1. Be there or be square icon_cool.gif
I'm really excited to hear that!

My sister got her tickets today, and stupidly she tried to rip it off me, and ripped it in half. Luckily, only the top ripped so it doesn't matter.
Oh noes! LOL icon_lol.gif
Eagle Eye (5 years ago)
No, not a giveaway... yet... but just a question, who's looking forward to it?

I've seen the trailers start to air on TV and I think they give a pretty good taste of it.

LOL, nice idea, but I'm a happily married man icon_smile.gif
Ding, ding, ding... I've got the 10!

Game over! Thankyou all for your enthusaism icon_biggrin.gif
Even better! Happy Birthday icon_biggrin.gif
Come on guys, three tickets to go icon_smile.gif

Answer the question, provide a name and address, and you're a winner!
Nah, not offhand. My work is with Paramount Pictures; the folks doing the discs would be Paramount Home Entertainment (or similar). Totally different kettle of fish icon_smile.gif

Glad to hear that passes have arrived!
Well, I'm a 33 year old guy and I found the movie quite charming.

Maybe it's because I've gotten past the teenage stage and can now look back on it via a film like this and have a laugh... I don't know.

I'd recommend the local site if people want to see clips and get a taste for it: www.angusthongs.com.au

I didn't get an email icon_sad.gif I'm not gonna complain, as I got the Tropic Thunder tickets, but this would have been a nice one to take my gf to. Oh well, I guess sharing is caring.
NB: I haven't sent a reply email to everyone yet, only the people whom I had to ask for an address from. I send the replies when I have all 10 in the can and I know when my secretary is sending the tickets out icon_smile.gif
6 down... 4 double passes left.

Zhou, these in-season passes are pretty much useable anywhere in the country except in the more upmarket situations, eg: in NSW you couldn't use the ticket to get $40 or $50 "La Premiere" seats at certain cinemas.

But if you're just going to a regular cinema, wherever you like, there's no problem.
4/10 double passes have been won, so far icon_smile.gif
Hey guys, how are you all this bright Monday morning?

I want to send 10 of you a double pass to see Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging - which is a new British film that has just launched.

www.angusthongs.com.au for film information.

If you think of a teenage Bridget Jones, you're halfway there. Ladies, you'll love it. Lads, you will get brownie points for taking your lady. It's a win-win situation!

To win, send me an e-mail and tell me in 25 words or less why you like British films.


First 10 past the post get the tickets icon_smile.gif
