THE SKINNY: Warner Home Video today announced the launch of www.JoinThe300.com
, an interactive online site promoting the release of the breakout hit movie 300 on DVD July 31.
The website features 300-related challenges for fans to complete, along with social networking and user-generated content functionality.
Beginning on June 21, fans of 300 can log on to www.JoinThe300.com
for a chance to win one of two trips to the upcoming Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA, where the two winners will compete head-to-head for the grand prize – a once in a lifetime trip to visit the set of director Zack Snyder’s upcoming film WATCHMEN.
WHV will also offer random prize giveaways to fans just for registering for the website, including 300 DVD mini posters signed by Zack Snyder and featuring exclusive art not available anywhere else, iPod shuffles, and 300 DVDs (that is, DVDs of the movie – we don’t know yet how many they’ll give away). The two winners of the www.JoinThe300.com
contest will receive travel to San Diego, hotel accommodations, passes to Comic-Con and a per diem for themselves and a guest.
Visitors to www.JoinThe300.com
will take part in multiple Spartan-themed “missions,” ranging from creating 300 video mash-ups to answering trivia questions about the film to creating their own television commercial for the movie. Tasks will be assigned escalating point values based on difficulty, and all contestants earning 300 points or more will be entered in a random drawing for the two trips to Comic-Con from July 26th – July 29th. The two winners will then compete against each other in a final mission. The victor of this epic battle will win the trip to the set of 300 director Zack Snyder’s new film WATCHMEN.
