THANK YOU FOR ENTERING, THE CONTEST HAS ENDED. WINNERS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN AND NOTIFIED VIA EMAIL. PLEASE CHECK BACK EVERY WEEK FOR NEW GIVEAWAYS!
What goes together better then the 4th of July and “JAWS?” That’s right, nothing. Before anyone gets crazy and the Navy loans them something capable of blowing up a shark, relax because we’re just talking about a (still quite epic) coffee table book. Last year Media Mikes gave away autographed copies of Carl Gottlieb’s “The ‘Jaws’ Log,” a book that documented the making of the Steven Spielberg classic through the eyes of Hollywood. Well, believe it or not, we’re going one better’ this year. In honor of our nations 235th Birthday (and number 36 for “JAWS”), instead of giving away an American flag, the Mikes are giving you a chance to win a copy of the brand new coffee table sized book “JAWS: Memories From Martha’s Vineyard.” This almost 300 page epic tells the story of “JAWS” in the words of the local Vineyard residents who worked on the film. We are giving away (1) copy of the SPECIAL EDITION, which comes with a behind the scenes DVD and an actual piece of the ORCA II, the version of the ORCA that was made to sink. There will also be (2) winners of the soft back version.
You’re probably saying “Hey, Mikes, other sites are also giving away this book. Why is your giveaway so special?” One word: Autographed. MovieMikes was proud to be the FIRST outlet in the world to read and review this special book (take THAT “Time” magazine) and both Mikes are proud to have been able to contribute to it. Read the review here. So, since we are obviously THE movie site for everything “JAWS” related, Media Mikes is going back to Amity over the 4th of July weekend to have these books autographed by not only the authors but anyone else he can track down who worked on the film. Check back during the contest for a complete list of signatures.
**THIS JUST IN: 7-3-11**
It was a wild and crazy night in Amity this weekend at the release party for the new book “Jaws: Memories from Martha’s Vineyard.” And, as promised, MovieMikes was there. The books we’re giving away have been signed by several members of the collective “JAWS” family, including:
Author Matt Taylor, Book Conceptionist Jim Beller and Joe Alves, Lee Fiero, Jonathan Filley, Tommy Mello, Rick Mello, Edith Blake, Carol Fligor, Jonathan Searles and more. Just the Jonathan Filley autograph makes this book even more of a collectable as his signature is one of the rarest in the “JAWS” world. Good luck!
Since we’re in the holiday mood, to enter the giveaway just tell us this: What film do you most associate with a special holiday? Is it always a “Die Hard” Christmas at your house? Does “E.T.” remind you of trick or treating? Do you expect your house to overturn on New Years Eve because of “The Poseidon Adventure?” Let us know and good luck! This giveaway will be open until Tuesday July 19th at Noon, Eastern Time. Only one entry per person, per household; all other entries will be considered invalid. Once the giveaway ends, Movie Mikes will randomly pick out winners and alert the winners via email.
