UPDATE 11/08: This contest is now closed. Please check back in a bit to see who the winners are!

Next year Henry Cavill will make his way on to the big screen as the world’s greatest* superhero.

But why wait so long when you can see him this year playing the world’s second greatest* superhero? And for free!

In November Cavill flexes his heroic muscles as the original superman, the Greek hero Theseus in director Tarsem Singh’s Immortals. That’s right, it’s Greek myth on the big screen and this time we’ve actually got both clashes AND titans.

You want to see it right? Well Backlot D is here to confer its godly blessings upon thee!

We’ve got 38 passes for two to see the movie on November 10th at 7:00pm at the MJR Marketplace 20 in Sterling Heights, MI.

Movie Info

Synopsis: Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion…until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope. Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes…

 Immortals fires its flaming arrow into theaters November 11, 2011.

Passing out extra food to the children out side the compound at camp eagle/ south viet nam. Many where very hungry and sickly looking and it ripped my heart out every day I left on patrol.

canadianflag - 11/7/2011

The only deed that I can remember performing was when I was 10. It was spring time and we lived in a new subdivision where there was no grass, no sidewalks, or paved streets. When we walked to school we had to walk in the roadway, then traverse a boardwalk to get to the house. There was mud everywhere. Well the smallest children managed to step off the boardwalk, into the mud. It was so thick, and deep, up to their boot tops. They couldn’t move, stuck like glue in sinking sand. Well, since I was the biggest kid around, I got to excerise my strength and pull out about 3-4 kids a day. This lasted till about June when the builders finally laid some sod and the ground dried up.
