To commemorate the DVD release of the upcoming film Electric Man, we have got a pretty awesome looking special edition poster to give away to our loving readers. The film tells the story of Jazz and Wolf, two guys who run a comics shop in Edinburgh. They owe their landlord money that they don't have, and then they suddenly acquire a copy of Electric Man #1. Awesome, right? Except it's worth a ton of money and there are other people who want it.
Because the film is about people doing probably bad things to get very rare and expensive comic books, leave a comment about the worst thing you would do (to yourself or someone else) to get acquire a £100,000 comic. Also, even though the film was made in Europe, this contest, like all of our others, is US only. So... sorry about that, people from other countries.
The contest will run until Tuesday, September 10, which is when the DVD comes out. If you have a Flixist account, just post under that and we'll PM you if you win. If you don't, either make one and join the family or leave your email address with the comment.
And be sure to check out our review of Electric Man next week, where you get to find out if that limited edition poster you won is for a movie that you might actually want to see.

Hey everyone! We have the opportunity for you to enter to win a free copy of Iron Sky -- everyone's favorite Space Nazi movie -- on either DVD or Blu-ray and a free Iron Sky frisbee! I'm hoping that the frisbee is in the shape of a Nazi UFO, but even if it isn't, you could still make UFO sound effects when you throw it.
All you have to do to enter is comment on this story below with your favorite Nazi mashup ideas (other than Space Nazis of course). Is it Fashion Nazis? Soup Nazis? Or even Surf Nazis? Let us know in the comments for your chance to win! Continental US only and this contest ends October 14th!
You know what's awesome? Puppies. You know what else is awesome? Free stuff. I've got this sweet CD full of music from Frankenweenie, including Winona Ryder warbling like a fourteen-year-old girl, and I want to give it to you. Yes, you. I want to give it to you. I want to put it in a box and give you my package. It's not very big, but everyone assures me that it is very satisfying for its size.
Not so fast, though. I'm not that easy. You've got to give me something I want first. Luckily for you, the thing I want is adorable pictures of you with your pet. Puppies are clearly the best, both in keeping with the movie's protagonist and in general, but any pet will do.
You must be in the picture with your pet. I don't want just anything you found off the internet. This is my first time. It needs to be special.
We all know what happens in Frankenweenie, so please don't get too into the theming. No zombified pets, please. I will cry and then I won't send you anything.
This contest is open to everyone worldwide, so go ahead and send us your delightfully foreign pets. Post pictures in the comments, send them to us by email, or tweet @flixist, and soon you might have a CD of your very own!
As tends to be the case with Nolan's Batmovies, I've been listening to the soundtrack for The Dark Knight Rises a fair amount over the past month and a half. It's pretty awesome pump-me-up music before important meetings or while I'm writing the awesome words you accept into your knowledge holes every day. Now YOU, our awesome readers, can win a copy of the Dark Knight Rises soundtrack on glorious, old-school vinyl, brought to you by our friends at Water Tower Music. It's an awesome prize for the Batman fanatics I know are out there. How do you win, you ask? You've got a chance to enter the contest up to three times. First, you can retweet the following message on Twitter, which we just tweeted:
RT to win the #DarkKnightRises soundtrack on vnyl from Water Tower Music!
Second, you can leave a comment here telling us which Nolanverse character has the best musical theme. Finally, you can like us on Facebook and leave a comment for us on this article's page (you must both have our page liked AND leave the comment for this entry to count). The winner will be chosen randomly on September 4th, which is next Tuesday when the vinyl releases in stores.
This contest is open to ALL READERS WORLDWIDE! Get your entries in, and good luck!

I've got the pleasure of living with four other Flixist editors in the hallowed halls of the Flixist LA Love Palace, and we're massive fans of The FP. I think most of us have seen it at least twice now, either when I reviewed it or when we hosted an awesome screening of it with our buds at Geekscape.

All you need to do is comment below and tell me what party game you would use to settle your various gang-related conflicts. Would you challenge your rivals to a three stock, no items, Final Destination match on Super Smash Bros Melee, or do you prefer the long-burning tension of winner-take-all, high stakes Cards Against Humanity? You have until June 22nd to get your entries in. In your comment, please state your preference of Blu-Ray or DVD. One Blu-ray winner and one DVD winner will be chosen at random and contacted through the email address associated with your Disqus account. if you have no contact information in your Disqus account, we cannot get in touch with you, and you will not be able to win. That's sad!
These discs are the Region 1, NTSC versions of the disc, so keep that in mind for your entries. All entrants must be from the United States or Canada. Good luck!
[Congratulations to our winner: Ben Murphy! Your prize should be in the mail! This contest is now closed, stay tuned for more soon!]
I still can't believe that title is real. Yes, for real, Flixist is giving away a real Mondo poster, and it's really of the Joss Whedon-penned critical smash-hit: Cabin in the Woods!

Safe looks like it's going to be a pretty kickass hard R action movie with the British Captain of Action Kicking, Jason Statham. I remember when this guy was just a Guy Ritchie regular, and he never high kicked a single bad dude to the face while tweaking on go-go juice. This week, we're giving you the chance to win a poster for Safe, which you can see in the gallery, along with a collection of Jason Statham action movies. If you win, you'll get the poster and DVD copies of The Expendables, Crank, Crank: High Voltage, Transporter 3, and The Bank Job. That's five movies featuring more bludgeonings and shootings than your average late night at the Flixist LA house.
You can win in one of two ways. First, you can comment below and tell us what your favorite Jason Statham movie is and why, or you can go on Twitter, follow @Flixist, and retweet the following message just made on Flixist's official twitter feed:
RT this message to win a #Safe prize pack from @Flixist and @LionsgateAction!
You can even do both for two chances at winning! This contest is only available to readers within the United States. Sorry again, international readers! I swear, we're trying to get something going for you dudes specifically. The contest will end this Friday, April 27th, the same deadline as our Cabin in the Woods contest, which you can also enter right here!
