It is that time again, get ready for another contest. This time, you have the chance to walk home with Bryan Singer’s adventure movie, Jack the Giant Slayer.

In the movie, giants are unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries and fight to reclaim the world as their own. A young man named Jack is forced to become a hero and to fight for his kingdom, friends and family, and the love of a brave princess. What chance does a teenager have against an army of giants?

Well, Jack might have a better chance at defeating them when you take control of the giant’s every move in the Jack the Giant Slayer app below! In addition to animated gifs that you control, there is a quiz that tests how brave you are (which could open a secret clip from the movie), and a Giant Soundboard which lets you play sound effects from the Giants which are featured in the movie (can you say, remix time?).

JACK THE GIANT SLAYER CONTEST

Now lets get to the contest and your chance to win the Jack the Giant Slayer Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD + Ultraviolet). The movie is based on the fairy tale “Jack and the Beanstalk”. Leave a comment telling us what other fairy tale you’d like to see made into an adventure movie and you will be entered into a random drawing to win the Blu-Ray! For a second entry into the contest, tweet about the contest with the hashtags #JackTheGiantSlayer and #MHD along with a link to myhollywooddream.com.

The contest is presented by Warner Brothers. The movie stars Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, and Eleanor Tomlinson. If you don’t win the contest, you can buy Jack the Giant Slayer on Blu-Ray and DVD on June 18th!

Win 500,000 Delta SkyMiles® with Travelpro®

I absolutely love contests and have for as long as I can remember. The excitement that comes from winning a prize for doing nothing is awesome. I’ve won at least a T-shirt and DVDs off Internet contests pretty much every year. We used to spotlight a lot of contests here on My Hollywood Dream, but we have since switched our focus away from those for a bit. When I heard about the grand prize for the TravelPro sweepstakes I couldn’t resist but to write about it. What is it you ask?

Win 500,000 Delta SkyMiles® with Travelpro®

That is right, the grand prize for the TravelPro sweepstakes is 500,000 miles from the Delta SkyMiles program. That is enough miles to do a lot of traveling (and boy do I need a vacation!). They will also give you two Travelpro Rollaboard bags to make traveling (when you use those miles) much easier. At least now you will not have to worry about using your old luggage that is being held together by duck tape. So, what do you have to do to enter the sweepstakes? It must be something big, like run a marathon or buy a ton of their bags, right? No! Entering is a piece of cake, just head on over to the link in the first paragraph and fill out the registration form and voila, you are entered to win more miles that you can even think about using them for. It is that quick and that easy.

The contest is being held by Travelpro; a luggage manufacturer that makes travel bags of all sizes, including those very handy bags with four wheels on the bottom that can let the bag roll in any direction. Good luck with the contest! (if you enter and win, please take me to Hawaii with some of those miles!!)

This post brought to you by ogilvy. All opinions are 100% mine.

We heard the rumor over and over throughout the years that print newspapers are dead and that paper books are on their way out. But that took on a whole new meaning with the creation of e-readers and of course the iPad. Personally, the paper aspect might be on the way out, but the iPad has taken newspapers and books to the next level. As a kid I used to image a future where books, news and articles magically downloaded right into your hands rather than having to go to the store to buy them. I thought it would be cool if pictures moved, breaking news actually appeared then and there. It all seemed like sci-fi stuff back than. On the level of flying cars and robot football.

Well, we might not have the flying cars and robot football, but newspapers and books have reached future levels.  On April 12th, a pretty cool new “appazine” was launched for the iPad, the collection, a monthly look at globally relevant topics whose goal is to “excite and challengae” readers. Going back to the idea of future-istic newspapers and magazines, the collection is highly interactive that gives different readers a different experience based on the features they enjoy and focus on. Some of the features include panoramic photography, audio, video, 3D digital animation, creative morphing, rubbing, and X-Ray lens, and get this, the appazine is being released simultaneously in three languages; English, German, and Chinese.

You can download the collection directly from the app store on the iPad. They are currently holding a contest where you have to tweet to enter for a chance to win an iPad (along with a free 7 month subscription to the collection)! All that you have to do for your chance to win is tweet this message: Stay up-to-date with current events by using #thecollection iPad App. That’s it!

Okay cats and kittens, it is that time of the year again… Lets kick off the summer movie season with a new My Hollywood Dream contest, thanks to the kind folks at FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™. Put your thinking caps on and look forward to the summer movie season.

We have such movies as Fast Five, Thor, X-Men: First Class, Green Lantern, Cars 2, Transformers 3, and the final Harry Potter coming to theaters (among many others!). What we want you to do is form a guest list with up to 5 fictional characters to make the most entertaining Hollywood Pizza Party that you can think of.  Do you think Professor X from the X-Men would have a enlightening conversation with Winnie the Pooh? Who do you think would win in in a game on the Wii, Megatron or Captain America? Take your guest list and post it in our comments and the best one (chosen by our panel of judges) wins…

A free FRESCHETTA® Simply Inspired pizza along with an awesome bamboo cutting board (pictured at the bottom of the article!).

I am actually eating the Rustic Pepperoni Pomodoro as I write this. It includes thick slices of pepperoni, mushrooms, and red peppers with mozzarella and gouda cheeses over a light red sauce. It is only one of the eight distinctive flavor varieties of pizzas they offer. The other flavors include Tuscan Farmhouse, Chicken Bianco, Hawaiian Style, Harvest Supreme, Farmers Market Veggie, Southern BBQ Recipe Chicken, and Classic Bruschetta. There really is an inspired taste for everyone. The crust is thin and crispy and there are a variety of spices on every bite.  They also use a FRESCH-TASTE SEAL™ packing that keeps the flavors contained while helping the environment by using 30% less packaging material. Head on over to Freschetta Simply Inspired to learn more about their different types of pizzas.

And remember to leave a comment with your ultimate Hollywood Pizza Party guest list, with fictional characters from upcoming movies. You might take home some free pizza and this awesome cutting board…

Don’t forget to support Freschetta by checking out and “liking” their Facebook page. The fine print: must be over 18 and a resident of the United States to enter and win the prize. (1) Winner will be drawn on Saturday May 14th, 2011. Have fun and good luck!

Are you interesting in appearing on the CW’s final season of Smallville? Big thanks to PJ at 141tv for pointing me to this contest, it looks like a very cool way for the show to thank fans and include them in the show’s final season. Here is the official description:

“SMALLVILLE” LAUNCHES THE “BELIEVE IN HEROES” CHALLENGE, OFFERING FANS AN OPPORTUNITY TO APPEAR IN THE ‘BEACON’ EPISODE ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4

Do you believe in heroes? If so, The CW’s hit series SMALLVILLE (Fridays, 8:00–9:00 p.m. ET/PT) wants to hear from you. Fans of SMALLVILLE, from Warner Bros. Television, will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to appear in an upcoming episode of the 10th and final season via the “Smallville: Believe in Heroes Challenge”, a 10-day promotion running from Friday, December 10—Monday, December 20, on CWTV.com.

In the episode “Beacon,” to be broadcast on Friday, February 4, Clark (series star Tom Welling) is at an emotional crossroads, with Metropolis divided by a clash between supporters of the government’s Vigilante Registration Act and opposing rallies to generate support for indispensable heroes like The Blur.

Clark’s friends assure him that he is, indeed, making a difference in his crime-fighting role as The Blur, and to prove their point, they show him videos from the Internet in which ordinary citizens express what The Blur means to them, what it means to be a hero – and what it means to have heroes and believe in them. One of these videos could be yours!

And this is where SMALLVILLE fans come in!

Here’s how it works:
Beginning Friday, December 10, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and continuing through Monday, December 20, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time,
SMALLVILLE fans can submit their own video testimonial as one of these hopeful citizens by uploading videos to The CW’s official website. In these videos, viewers – speaking in character as impassioned citizens of Metropolis and around the world, fighting for the rights of their heroes – can express what The Blur means to them and talk about why they believe in these super heroes. SMALLVILLE producers and the CWTV.com team will review the submissions and select a number of the user-submitted videos for broadcast as the testimonials that Clark watches during the “Beacon” episode airing Friday, February 4 (8:00–9:00 p.m. ET/PT) on The CW. In addition to selecting the winning videos to be used in the episode, the SMALLVILLE producers and CWTV.com team will also select a number of additional favorite videos that will be posted to CWTV.com following the broadcast. For information on how to submit videos and for rules of the promotion, please click here.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Tony’s Pizza. All opinions are 100% mine.

Oscar Party with Pizza

This Sunday, March 7th, is the 82nd Annual Academy Awards and what better way is there to celebrate the year’s best films than by throwing a big party? And what better treat is there for a party than pizza? That is why we’re teaming up with Tony’s Pizza to give away free coupons for their newest creation, Crispy Crust Pizza.

The delicious new version of their classic oven pizza comes in pepperoni, cheese and supreme styles. How do you take home yours? It is very easy!

Leave us a comment on this article with what movie you think will take home the best picture Oscar on Sunday. Nominated for the top honor in film are a very interesting mix of films this year, including Avatar, The Blind Side, District 9, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Precious, A Serious Man, Up, and Up in the Air.

Personally, I think that Avatar is going to take home the award. I saw it in Imax 3D and was completely blown away. It is the type of film that reminds us why we go to theaters to escape in the first place. James Cameron crafted a visually stunning and epic film with characters you could really care about. The story has been told before in the past, but never like this.

Feel free to post your comments until the Saturday after the Oscars (March 13th, 2010) and we will draw multiple winners. Wait? That is after the Oscars, yeah, we know, but you can still enjoy the pizza with a Movie Night or after a long day of work. Note: This contest is only for our USA residents.
