Avengers Contests Give Facebook Fans Advance ScreeningsBy: Josh Wolford - April 2, 2012
Some lucky moviegoers will have the chance to see The Avengers a little bit early, as Marvel is running a couple of contests via Facebook.
The first contest comes to you from Marvel and Harley-Davidson, who are giving away two tickets to the official world premiere event in Hollywood. The prize doesn’t included accommodations or travel, but will receive “goodwill” if they make it to Hollywood on a Harley-Davidson. The contest was announced on Facebook, and fans can enter here.
While this contest is merely being promoted on Facebook, another contest announced on Monday involves actual Facebook likes. Disney’s Marvel Studios say that a few lucky cities will be getting advance screenings of the film, about three weeks before the nationwide release on May 4th.
Cities like L.A., NYC, Chicago, Miami, and Houston are already getting advance screenings, but there will be another five U.S. cities that will get the film early. That’s where Facebook comes into play. The amount of Facebook fans from participating cities will be the determining factor in where the advance screenings land.
The Avengers is set to be one of (if not the) biggest blockbuster of the summer (The Dark Knight Rises may argue). Check out the trailer below:
