On Tuesday, January 6th, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount released the sexy and scandalous historical series The Tudors: The Complete Second Season on DVD. It’s a great show….if you like sex, betrayal, high drama, debauchery and violence. That said, of course I was an early adopter of the now Showtime hit, which I hope gets even hotter. This epic, lavish, and critically-acclaimed series has thrust star Jonathan Rhys Meyers into the spotlight as a young King Henry VIII.
Now for the good stuff. FilmFetish.com is getting two copies of the Complete Second Season of The Tutors on DVD, and I’m giving them both away to you guys! This is a great deal. DVD boxed sets go for like $50 bucks a pop. All that sex, action and drama, and you don’t even have to give up a kidney. Not even a blood donation (note to self; consider for next Saw giveaway requirement).
However, you will have to jump through a few hoops. After all, how else do we pick just two winners out of the three of you. If you all lived in the same city, we could do rock, paper, scissors. But you don’t, so we can’t.
Okay, so here’s the deal. There’s two steps to enter this great contest and have a chance to win:
- Sign-up for email alerts of film and contest news. CLICK HERE to sign-up.
- Reply to this post, and tell us the name of the film you think is the best historical epic ever made. This can be from any era (i.e. from The Spartacus to The Battle of Algiers). Impress me on this one. Show us who has the real Film Fetish!
Now, why did I add “BUT ENTER QUICK!” at the end of the story title, you ask? That’s because I’m only running this contest through next Tuesday, January 13TH! After that, you’ll have to purchase the Boxed Set from the FilmFetish.com Store RIGHT HERE.
Join in the fun, and discover your inner-Tudor at www.whothetudorareyou.com, a mini-site that lets you discover exactly where you would have existed in Tudor society according to your present day social status. Simply select some basic details about your life as it is now (sex, age, job, salary, etc.) and find out if you would have been a serf, a peasant, a noble, or even king to glimpse some details of what you’re life would have been like.
Speaking of the 13TH! I am going to be posting a GREAT contest for you cult horror film buffs later. It probably won’t be published, as of tonight’s E-blast, so check back late tonight. It’ll be a fun one.
Here’s more information on The Tudors Second Season DVD release:
Revisit one of television’s most deliciously daring hit series in its critically-acclaimed sophomore season, when THE TUDORS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON ascends onto its DVD throne as a four-disc set on January 6 from Showtime, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Match Point, TV’s Elvis) returns to his “boisterously, enjoyably inappropriate” (USA Today) Golden Globe-nominated** role as Henry VIII, whose promiscuous ways change the course of history as he moves to divorce Queen Katherine (Maria Doyle Kennedy) and marry Anne Boleyn (Natalie Dormer), prompting Pope Paul III (eight-time Academy Award® nominee Peter O’Toole) to have him excommunicated. Anne’s failure to provide Henry with a male heir sets the wheels in motion for her eventual beheading and sends the King into the arms of Jane Seymour (Anita Briem).
In the tradition of Showtime’s brilliant original programming, THE TUDORS continues to garner record viewership for the network, and also picked up 2008 Golden Globe nominations for Best Television Series – Drama and Best Actor (Rhys Meyers), following its 2007 Emmy® wins for the series’ costuming and theme music. THE TUDORS returns to Showtime for a third season in the spring of 2009, with Grammy Award® winner Joss Stone joining the cast as Henry’s fourth wife, Anne of Cleves.
