A remake of the 1966 film of the same name starring Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine, Michael Hoffman’s Gambit (2012) is a pleasantly old-fashioned transatlantic crime caper, given some welcome wit and verve courtesy of an adapted screenplay from Joel and Ethan Coen. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Gambit, we have TWO Blu-ray copies of the film to give away to our lucky readers, plus an accompanying merchandise pack for both winners (which includes an umbrella, photo frame and mug). This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
Harry Deane (Colin Firth) is a man with a plan. Art curator for media tycoon Lord Lionel Shahbandar (Alan Rickman), Harry devises an elaborate plot to con Shahbandar into purchasing a fake Monet painting. With the help of beautiful rodeo queen PJ Puznowski (Cameron Diaz), the pair hatch a scheme to fool Shahbandar into believing that Harry’s expert forgery is the real deal and pocketing a hefty sum in the process. But with the con proving harder to pull off than he had first intended, Harry and PJ find themselves in increasingly hilarious situations in order to see the job through to the end.
To be in with a chance of winning one of TWO Blu-ray copies of Gambit, plus some exclusive merchandise, just answer the following simple question:
