We're delighted to be working with Sony Home Entertainment, to give away two bundles of newly released Blu-rays from The Criterion Collection's exceptional series of classic and contemporary cinema each month.

August's releases include: 

Deep Cover (1992) - Deep Cover is an unsung gem of the nineties’ Black cinema explosion that delivers a riveting character study and sleek action thrills alongside a furious moral indictment of America and the devastating failures of the war on drugs. A Film noir that hits the mean streets of 1990s Los Angeles in this stylish and subversive underworld odyssey from veteran actor-director Bill Duke.

All About Eve (1950) - With the role that revived Bette Davis' career and came to define it, All About Eve is a devastatingly witty Hollywood classic, and the most deliciously entertaining film ever made about the ruthlessness of show business. Backstage is where the real drama plays out!

Blow Out (1981) - In the enthralling Blow Out, brilliantly crafted by Brian De Palma, John Travolta gives one of his greatest performances, as a movie sound-effects man who believes he has accidentally recorded a political assassination. Blow Out is an American paranoia thriller unlike any other, as well as a devilish reflection on moviemaking.

For a chance to win August's new releases, answer the following question: Blow Out star John Travolta was the original choice to play the title role in a 1994 film, which was eventually given to Tom Hanks. What was the film? 

Please email answers to by midnight on Sunday 29 August 2021.
