To celebrate the Blu-ray and DVD release of Baltasar Kormákur’s action-thriller Contraband (2012) – which stars Mark Wahlberg – on 16 July, we’ve got three Blu-ray copies of the film to give away on to our valued readers. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Set in New Orleans and Panama, Contraband explores the cutthroat world of international smuggling; full of desperate criminals, corrupt officials, high-stakes and big payoffs, where loyalty rarely exists and death is just one wrong turn away. Chris Farraday (Wahlberg) abandoned his life of crime a long time ago, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), fails to complete a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), Chris is forced back into doing what he does best to settle Andy’s debt.

With the help of best friend Sebastian (Ben Foster), Chris quickly assembles a crew for one final run to Panama in order to pay Briggs back. However as things quickly fall apart Chris must use his rusty skills to navigate a treacherous network of brutal drug lords, cops and hitmen before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and young sons become their target.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE Blu-ray copies of Contraband, all you have to do is answer this simple question:
