RAMBO Attacks Collider

     May 22, 2008





In the next few days I’m going to be posting a number of contests. Thankfully, everything that’s about to be offered is stuff that a lot of you are going to want. But unlike the previous contests that have run on Collider…I’m actually going to make you work to get it for free.


Now before you get all nervous…it’s still going to be very easy to win!



Rather than just sending me an email with what you want and your name…I’m going to make you answer 3 easy questions to qualify. This way it’ll eliminate a few people that don’t really care.



And before you get to what you have to do…I’m sure you want to know what you can win!



Thanks to Lionsgate and a very nice woman named Elizabeth, I’ve got a ton of Rambo DVDs to giveaway! I’ve been given 5 of the new Rambo: The Complete Collector’s Set and 5 Rambo Blu-Ray box sets which have the first three films in it. On top of that, I’ve been given 5 Blu-Ray’s of the latest Rambo film!



So to make it nice and easy…there will be 10 winners in all. 5 winners will get the Rambo Collector’s Set on regular DVD and the other 5 will get the Blu-Ray box sets with the latest Rambo movie thrown in so you have all 4 movies!



If you’re a fan of Rambo…seriously…these sets are killer. Not only do you get the movies and a shitload of extras, but the normal DVD box set and Rambo on Blu-Ray comes with digital copies so you can easily put the movies on your computer or iPod. Basically, if you’re a fan, these sets are pretty much must own.



So you’re probably asking how can I win…



Here’s what you need to do.



Email thecollidermailbox@gmail.com



In the headline say Rambo Contest



In the body of the email please say if you want the normal DVDs or the Blu-Rays.


Then, please answer the three questions below. If you answer them correctly, you’ll be entered in the contest. On May 28th at noon Pacific Time, I’ll randomly pick 10 winners and if you’ve won I’ll email you and ask for your address. Since I already have the DVDs, they’ll go out once everyone sends me their address. Unfortunately, due to the weight of the box sets, I’m only opening this contest to people who live in the USA. Sorry…but these sets weight a lot!



Anyway, here are the three questions and below them is all the info on the box sets and cover art. Needless to say, a big thanks to Lionsgate and to everyone that made this contest possible! Good luck!



Question 1 – What day did I post my video interview with Sylvester Stallone on Rambo and how long was the interview (read the intro).



Question 2 – What day did I post the movie clips from Rambo and what was the name of Movie Clip 6?



Question 3 – What day did the latest Rambo movie get released in movie theaters here in the United States?

First Blood: Ultimate Edition Synopsis:


He never fought a battle he couldn’t win – except the conflict raging within his own soul. John Rambo is an ex-Green Beret, once the perfect killing machine who is now haunted by memories of the war in Vietnam. He’s searching for peace, but instead finds an over-zealous, small-town sheriff who’s spoiling for a fight. All hell breaks loose when an unjustly imprisoned Rambo escapes and becomes the target of a massive manhunt. Now he must use all his cunning, combat skills and weapons training to stay alive and outwit his pursuers. First Blood is an explosive action-thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final, powerful frame.
