In celebration of the upcoming release of Moon we’re giving away this very cool poster for the film and to make it all the sweeter, it will arrive at your address signed by the director himself, Duncan Jones.
For your chance to win the poster all you have to do is send a direct message to us via Twitter (send it via DM to SciFiScoop) telling us in less than 140 characters why we should give you this poster. Be serious, be funny – convince us however you like. We’ve only got 1 to give away so do your best to convince us this poster has your name on it as well as the director’s! It really couldn’t be any easier to enter, so go forth and send us your DM for a chance to win!
Criteria: The competition will run until June 12th. We’ll announce the winner on the same day the film opens. You can submit as many DM’s as you like, but if you spam us to death be prepared for the consequences! Finally, and unfortunately for international readers, the competition is only open to US residents.
Don’t know what Moon is about? Then here’s a full synopsis:
It is the near future. Astronaut Sam Bell is living on the far side of the moon, completing a three-year contract with Lunar Industries to mine Earth’s primary source of energy, Helium-3. It is a lonely job, made harder by a broken satellite that allows no live communications home. Taped messages are all Sam can send and receive. Thankfully, his time on the moon is nearly over, and Sam will be reunited with his wife, Tess, and their three-year-old daughter, Eve, in only a few short weeks. Finally, he will leave the isolation of “Sarang,” the moon base that has been his home for so long, and he will finally have someone to talk to beyond “Gerty,” the base’s well-intentioned, but rather ncomplicated computer. Suddenly, Sam’s health starts to deteriorate. Painful headaches, hallucinations and a lack of focus lead to an almost fatal accident on a routine drive on the moon in a lunar rover. While recuperating back at the base (with no memory of how he got there), Sam meets a younger, angrier version of himself, who claims to be there to fulfill the same three year contract Sam started all those years ago. Confined with what appears to be a clone of his earlier self, and with a “support crew” on its way to help put the base back into productive order, Sam is fighting the clock to discover what’s going on and where he fits into company plans.
