Contest: Win Two Tickets to the Hollywood Premiere of Paranorman!


A few weeks ago, the people behind Paranorman sent us an email out of the blue. The whole idea behind their movie, they said, was that “the things that make us weird are actually the best things about us,” and “you don’t become a hero by being normal.” They said that we seemed like folks for whom this might resonate (we couldn’t really disagree), and because of that, they’d like to send us something. And while we wait patiently (ok, maybe not so patiently, since we saw what other people have been getting), we’ve got something for you guys in the meantime. Or, at least, for any of you who would be able to get to Hollywood Premiere on Sunday August 5th at 2pm, for Hollywood’s red carpet premiere of Paranorman.

One lucky winner will receive two tickets to the star-studded premiere, which will also be attended by the movie’s cast and crew, including stars like Anna Kendrick (Scot Pilgrim, Twilight), Jeff Garlin (Toy Story 3, Wall-E), Leslie Mann (The 40 Year Old Virgin), and Tempestt Bledsoe (The Cosby Show). And really, who better to watch a beautiful stop-motion zombie movie from the studio that brought you Coraline with than Vanessa Huxtable.

This contest is, naturally, only available to people in the Los Angeles area. This is going to be a Twitter contest as usual, as we find that’s the easiest way for us to contact winners quickly and reliably. And we want to be able to contact you quickly, because the movie comes out on Sunday! (If there ever was a time to create a Twitter account for one tweet, this might be it, LA fans.)

To win, tweet this bolded text (and only this bolded text): I just entered @The_MarySue’s Paranorman contest so I can attend a #HollyweirdPremiere!

Do not @ reply The Mary Sue in your tweet, only tweet the bolded text which already has our username in it. REMEMBER TO FOLLOW US.

If you do not follow @The_MarySue on Twitter WE WILL NOT BE ABLE to contact you if you win and you will be disqualified. Entries must be received by 10:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, August 1st 2012 (that’s tomorrow at 7 a.m. Los Angeles time). We will randomly pic a winner and contact them sometime tomorrow. Good luck and thanks to Big Honcho Media for the opportunity!
