Robin Wright The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride Contest Giveaway Sweepstakes. This The Princess Bride Blu-ray contest, giveaway, sweepstakes illustrates The Princess Bride release on Blu-ray on October 2, 2012.

Rob Reiner‘s The Princess Bride stars Mandy PatinkinRobin WrightCary Elwes, Christopher Guest, and Wallace Shawn.

The Princess Bride‘s plot synopsis: “Based on William Goldman’s novel of the same name, The Princess Bride is staged as a book read by grandfather (Peter Falk) to his ill grandson (Fred Savage). Falk’s character assures a romance-weary Savage that the book has much more to deliver than a simpering love story, including but not limited to fencing, fighting, torture, death, true love, giants, and pirates. Indeed, The Princess Bride offers a tongue-in-cheek fairy tale depicting stable boy-turned-pirate Westley’s journey to rescue Buttercup (Robin Wright), his true love, away from the evil prince (Chris Sarandon), whom she had agreed to marry five years after learning of what she had believed to be news of Westley’s death. With help from Prince Humperdinck’s disgruntled former employee Miracle Max (Billy Crystal), swordsman Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), and a very large man named Fezzik (Andre the Giant), the star-crossed lovers are reunited.”

In this timeless film, a grandfather narrates the story by means of telling a classic fairy tale to his young grandson upon his bedtime. Although he is forced into listening at first, the boy ultimately becomes invested in the story and loves it just as much as his grandfather! This feature will explore some of our other favorite children’s books that have been made into equally engaging movies, such as Percy Jackson,Where The Wild Things Are, and Fantastic Mr. Fox 

The Harry Potter Series

All of these books and films have taken over the universe leaving consumers desperate for another taste of Harry’s adventures in witchcraft and wizardry!

Where The Wild Things Are

In this classic story that was turned into a visually stunning film in 2009, Max sets sail to find a world of happiness but instead he is faced with terrifying creatures quadruple his size is both height and width. It is here that he finds his newfound friendship and personal significance on the island.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

These films that makes the dream of riding alongside the courageous and glorious Aslan about as real as its going to get. We’ve all wanted to be friends with a lion at least once in our lives, oh how I envy Peter, Susie, Edmund and Lucy.

Charlie and The Chocolate Factory 

Roald Dahl and Tim Burton, come together to bring this outlandish story to life on the big screen. With one of the world’s greatest children writers and one of the film industry greatest creative masterminds at the helm of this project, a film such as this is bound to get everyone licking wallpaper for a taste of the magic. 

Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightening Thief

Just as utterly engaging as the book. The film totally encapsulates the magic of Percy Jackson’s encounters with the gods of Mount Olympus. Embarking on a worldly adventure with his friends Percy battles against the fuming wraths of the gods, whilst falling in love with the beautiful Annabeth in the aim on saving his mother – BRILLIANT!

Fantastic Mr. Fox

Yet another demonstration of Wes Anderson’s sheer brilliance!  With the aid of international superstars such as George Clooney and Meryl Streep and combining them with the innovative use of foxy stop motion animation it undoubtedly provides the film never ending appeal.
