Contests & Giveaways News - Page 27
We reported back in June that the once mooted two Independence Day sequels, once referred to as ID Forever Parts 1 and 2, but announced as Independence Day 2 was being released to theaters in July 2015.
Well fast forward just a few months later and the situation is a little different. Perhaps to move it away from a blockbuster year including Star Wars Episode VII, The Avengers 2, and Jurassic Park 4, but more likely to give the production, including the writing/directing team of Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin more time to set the project up, Twentieth Century Fox have delayed the project by a whole year - now blasting screens on July 1 2016.
Whilst there is still no confirmation on whether original star Will Smith will return in his role as fighter pilot Captain Steven Hiller, but the word is that two scripts have been written - one with and without the role. Talk about hedging your bets!
Despite this set back, Roland Emmerich, now on the PR trail following the home video release of White House Down is adamant that Independence Day 2 is not only happening, but will be his next project.
Following the announcement earlier this year that Sony Pictures has picked up the rights for the debut Angry Birds feature film, comes the announcement of the Australian Blu-ray release of the first volume of Angry Birds Toons, previously accessible through the Angry Birds app, or on pay TV.
Whilst Sony Pictures Australia have not detailed the discs specifications, look for the set to feature the first 26 episodes with 1080p vision, along with behind the scenes featurettes, an art gallery and a special Christmas themed episode. Look for the first volume to hit Blu-ray shelves on December 5th.
Rovio's franchise continues to go from strength to strength and has truly taken the world by storm, including much publicized tie-ins with established franchises, including Star Wars and tons of merchandising taking over stores.
Thanks to Walt Disney Pictures Australia, we have been granted two copies of this week's release of The Jungle Book on Blu-ray to give away to two lucky readers.

The future. America is an irradiated wasteland. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC lies Mega City One a vast, violent metropolis of over 400 million citizens living in perpetual fear. The only ones attempting to impose order in the urban chaos are The Judges. Law enforcers, juries, judges and executioners rolled into one. The epitome of these Judges is Dredd. The Chief Judge gives Dredd a mission. To road test a rookie Judge, the powerful psychic Cassandra Anderson. It is to be a training day. The Judges head for a seemingly routine homicide in the notorious Peach Trees mega-block - a 200 story vertical slum run by the pitiless Ma-Ma clan. When the Judges attempt to arrest one of Ma-Ma's chief henchmen, Ma-Ma shuts down the entire building and orders her clan to hunt the judges down. Our two judges are now caught in a vicious and relentless fight for survival.
The Dredd 3D Blu-ray features the 2012 film in both 2D and 3D, along with some solid extra features. The limited edition Blu-ray version also adds a high quality slipcover and an insert graphic novel.

Several TweakTown staff are fathers, we love our children to bits. Of course you all do too as mothers and fathers. But, of course, we also love technology. Let's mix the two together! So, what we want you to do is pull out your camera or iPhone or whatever you use to take photos and grab the cutest picture you can of your baby or child with a technology related item.
I've got things started with a photo of my son and a PS3 controller. Close second would be a recent photo of him and his fascination of the new Xbox 360 and turning it on and off as many times per day as he can. It seems this is a popular thing among babies. Yours too?
For your hard work... well come on, it's not really hard work spending time with your loved ones. The cutest photo as decided by the fathers of TweakTown will win a brand new GIGABYTE H77N-WIFI cutey-pie Mini-ITX motherboard. Anyone in the world can enter and we'll cover the shipping fee.[img]2[/img]
"The GIGABYTE H77N-WIFI is possibly the most connected 7 series Mini-ITX board out there with Dual HDMI ports and Dual LAN plus an onboard WiFi/Bluetooth module that also supports Intel WiDi technology. This spec provides endless possibilities in terms of building a compact PC rig that fits right in with your increasingly digital home environment, while also supporting the power and efficiency of Intel3rd Generation Core processors."
Firstly of all I would like to thank all of you for entering our Win a trip to Computex Taipei 2012 contest on behalf of the whole TweakTown team. Again we need to thank Corsair, LSI and Sapphire for helping to make this possible!
We had a rather good response and will consider running the contest again next year. However, enough of the dribble... you are here to see if you are the winner of our contest.
Drum roll please! The lucky winner of our Computex trip is Roshan from India. We have already been planning the trip with Roshan and things are proceeding well. He is very excited about the opportunity we have given him to come to Computex and Taiwan for his first time. You can look forward to some guest blogger coverage from Roshan during Computex.
Sadly not everyone can win - if we had it our way, we would bring each and every one of you over who entered, but of course it's just not possible. Better luck next time if we decide to run it again and thanks again for participating!
