"Fantastic Mr. Fox" Giveaway!

FANTASTIC MR. FOX is visionary director Wes Anderson’s first animated film, utilizing classic handmade stop-motion techniques to tell the story of the best-selling children’s book by Roald Dahl (author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach). The film features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Wally Wolodarsky, Eric Anderson, Michael Gambon, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, and Jarvis Cocker.

Mr. and Mrs. Fox (Clooney and Streep) live an idyllic home life with their son Ash (Schwartzman) and visiting young nephew Kristofferson (Eric Anderson). But after twelve years of quiet domesticity, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr. Fox’s wild animal instincts. Soon he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community. Trapped underground without enough food to go around, the animals band together to fight against the evil Farmers - Boggis, Bunce and Bean - who are determined to capture the audacious, fantastic Mr. Fox at any cost. In the end, he uses his natural instincts to save his family and friends. For more info, check out the official website.

In honor of "Fantastic Mr. Fox" opening, 42 West has graciously offered two of my readers with Fox related goodies.

I could say that this giveaway was for a romantic, candle light dinner with George Clooney, who plays the Fantastic Mr. Fox (which really isn't much of a stretch), but that would be a lie. Would you settle for a cool fox tail tie?

And how about a set of Mario Batali Thanksgiving recipe cards? Yeah, that's what I thought. Really, who needs George Clooney?

Ok, never mind.

Anyway, to enter, all you need to do is comment. And of course, be a follower!

Addtional entries:

1. Tweeting about the giveaway will give you an extra entry.
2. Posting the giveaway as your facebook status is worth another entry.
3. Blog about this giveaway on your own blog and earn two more entries!

Just be sure to leave a seperate comment for each one! Giveaway ends Monday, so get a move on! Come on, hustle, hustle!

And be sure to check out this post for my interview with Jason Schwartzman!

Love the Fox Tie! I'm sorry that I can't get around to comment on all my usual sites because of this rotten weather we are having at the moment! The weather I can deal with, but the power-cuts drive me mad!
But I'm always here!
Big hugs!

Shannon said...

You are such a rockstar! Throw my name in the hat! I'm thinking my better half should wear the tie at Christmas. Why am I always wanting to put my family in funny accessories??

Wes Anderson and animation, eh? That could work. Stop motion can freak me out - I have a whole puppets are evil little fake people thing that needs the attention of a counselor going on - but when it works it can be divine.

Holly said...

Seriously, the tie is hilarious. My daughter would want to wear it with her frog boots and princess purse.


PS-Grabbed your button!

panamamama said...

We can't wait to see that movie! (And the tie is awesome!)

Staci said...

I can't wait to see the movie either! Hmm...a date with George Clooney or a tie? The tie sounds like a better bet so that hubby won't get upset!
