Win a copy of 'Expendables 3' on Blu-ray, thanks to Roadshow

To celebrate this week's release of 'Expendables 3' on Blu-ray HD and DVD, we have ten copies of the Blu-ray extended cut to give away to readers, thanks to our friends at Village Roadshow Home Entertainment.

 

In the latest 'Expendables' mission, Barney (Sylvester Stallone), Christmas (Jason Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill ... or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans. The fight becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables' most personal battle yet.

Traverse the universe with our 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Blu-ray promo

It's Marvel, so it was always going to have a built-in audience, but the success of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' exceeded expectations, grossing nearly $800 million worldwide at the box office. Now, the film is coming to home theatres and to celebrate, Disney Home Entertainment will treat 5 TweakTown readers to a free Blu-ray copy, as well as a 'Guardians of the Galaxy' t-shirt and cap.

 

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance.
