Holy Hogwarts! Enter to win passes to our advance HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS Part 2 screening in Plano, TX!

CONTEST OVER – all passes have been distributed. We had literally HUNDREDS of entries, almost all very passionate and personal, and we wish we could accommodate every one of them. All winners have been e-mailed. Please stay tuned for details on our next contest.


The big summer movies have officially kicked into high gear. Up next is HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS Part 2. We’ve teamed up with Warner Brothers to bring you a special advance screening of the sure-to-be blockbuster. The screening will be held in Plano on the evening of July 11, 2011.

READ THIS NEXT PART VERY CAREFULLYFirst, DO NOT enter if there’s ANY chance you will not be able to go.  Each winner will receive a code to admit two – if you don’t turn in your pass, you will be blacklisted from our screening contests.  These screening codes are getting more and more limited for us, so we need to make sure winners are actually going to the screenings we sponsor. Secondly and most important, DO NOT send more than one entry, do not use multiple e-mail addresses to enter for yourself, and do not get family members to flood our inbox with numerous entries.  If you’re married, just send ONE entry – winners get a pass that admits two, so husband and wife do not need to send two separate e-mail to us.  If you have kids, you are not going to win multiple passes from us, so do not send multiple entries.  It’s amazing how many people ignore this – DO NOT SEND MULTIPLE ENTRIES OR ALL OF THEM WILL BE DELETED.

Okay, hopefully you read and retained that.  Now to enter our contest where you could win a pass for you and a guest, just send us an e-mail with the subject line “I want to see HARRY POTTER!” – BUT THAT’S NOT ALL YOU ARE REQUIRED TO DO.  We want hardcore fans to get these passes, so you need to include in your e-mail why you think you are the biggest HARRY POTTER fan in our contest.  Tell us what Harry means to you, how much stuff you own, how many times you’ve seen the films, etc… we want those answers to be GOOD.  Don’t write one sentence saying something like “I love Harry Potter” – that will not cut it. Make those answers good and thorough.  All winners will be notified through e-mail on the morning of July 11.  If the e-mail link doesn’t work, send your entry to thebigfanboy [at] gmail.com – posting in the comments on this page does not count as an entry.

Our winners will receive a specific GOFOBO code that can only be used once.  One entry per e-mail per household – do not use multiple e-mails for the same name, multiple entries for the same person or family will be discarded – DO NOT SEND MULTIPLE ENTRIES, EVEN IF THEY ARE FROM DIFFERENT E-MAIL ADDRESSES, OR THEY WILL ALL BE DELETED.  DO NOT POST IN THE COMMENTS ASKING FOR PASSES.  DO NOT SEND A FOLLOW-UP E-MAIL ASKING IF YOU’VE WON – WINNERS WILL BE NOTIFIED THROUGH E-MAIL.
