Win A Copy Of London Has Fallen

If you have seen “Olympus Has Fallen” I am guessing you saw the sequel to that film “London Has Fallen.” If not you have a chance to win both films on Blu-ray. All you have to do is follow us on Twitter for your chance to win both movies.

In “London Has Fallen” the devastation of a world capital and a revenge plan against an American president fuel the high-octane “London Has Fallen.” In this film the fantastic cast that includes Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett and Morgan Freeman reprises their original roles from Olympus Has Fallen, joined by Alon Moni Aboutboul. Jackie Earle Haley, Charlotte Riley, and Waleed F. Zuaiter and Babak Najafi directs London Has Fallen.

When the British Prime Minster dies unexpectedly, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning knows it is his duty to prep with Secret Service Director Lynne Jacobs for them to accompany U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) to the state funeral at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. With every powerful world leader set to attend, the funeral should be the most protected event on Earth. Yet within moments of arriving, heads of government are assassinated and London landmarks are attacked. Asher, Banning, and Jacobs are ambushed and retreat amidst a hail of gunfire and explosives. The devastated British capital goes into lockdown. Banning will stop at nothing to secure Asher’s safe return home. Back at the White House, Vice President Allan Trumbull races against time brainstorming with top advisors in the Situation Room to get those trapped in London a lifeline of support and a way out. Outnumbered and outgunned, Banning reaches out for help to an English MI6 agent who rightly trusts no one. Failure is not an option as they attempt to stop the criminals from carrying out the final phase of their revenge plan.

Here are some of the bonus features that come with the film.

XBOX One Has Your Chance To Drive A Ford GT

Recently Ford announced that the Ford GT is making a coming back. Not only are car enthusiasts psyched, but so are gamers. To celebrate Ford’s return to the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race 50 years after recording an historic 1-2-3 victory in 1966, the #66 Ford GT race car is now available to drive in the Forza Motorsport 6 racing game for Xbox One.

Starting today, codes to download the Ford GT Le Mans race car for free will be sent direct to the Xbox Live message inboxes of gamers who play Forza Motorsport 6.

This year Ford is running two Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Ford GTs in the FIA World Endurance Championship and two in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. All four Ford GTs will compete for GTE Pro class glory at the Le Mans 24 Hours that starts at 15:00 CET on June 18 in France.

“Ford’s 1966 Le Mans victory is the stuff of motorsport legend, and now we’re back to take on the world’s toughest endurance race with our most technologically advanced car ever,” said Henry Ford III, global marketing manager, Ford Performance. “We’ve worked closely with Forza and Xbox so that millions of Forza Motorsport 6 gamers can experience the excitement of our Le Mans return side-by-side with Ford.”

The Ford GT race car is based on the all-new Ford GT supercar, which is the pinnacle product of the Ford Performance division. With state-of-the-art aerodynamics, lightweight carbon fibre construction and a powerful and efficient Ford EcoBoost engine, the Ford GT has been built to go head-to-head with the GT establishment – Ferrari, Corvette, Porsche and Aston Martin – as they fight for victory in the ultimate endurance battle.

The Forza Motorsport 6 cover star Ford GT road car – expected to start arriving in customers’ garages by the end of 2016 – has been available to drive in-game since the launch of the acclaimed title last year.

For the Le Mans 24 Hours the two WEC Ford GTs retain their #66 and #67 race numbers while the IMSA cars become #68 and #69, celebrating Ford’s back-to-back Le Mans victories in 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1969.

It is not hard to fathom that Game of Thrones is the most-watched HBO original series and best-selling TV on DVD title for the past five years. Not fans of the show will be able to get their hands on the new and very collectible Steelbook collectible Game of Thrones Blu-ray Seasons 3 and 4 sets.

MTN Dew Has A NASCAR VR Dale Jr & A Dancing Cat

MTN Dew has been known to mix things up! Thankfully they are not mixing Dale Jr and dancing cat. Let’s first take a look at the virtual reality NASCAR stuff.

The new VR content on YouTube360 is part of the DEWcision 2016 campaign, giving fans the power to choose which of their favorite limited-time flavor stays on shelves. The VR experience puts fans in the virtual driver’s seat next to three of NASCAR’s most popular drivers – Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne and Chase Elliott – where they can race through worlds powered by Baja Blast or Pitch Black. Depending on which path a fan chooses in the VR experience, their vote will also be counted to help determine which flavor wins DEWcision 2016.

New Hardware and Software: DEW is one of the first brands to use the new Oculus Rift VR headset and developer kit to transport fans to a choose-your-own adventure gamified VR racing experience. Firstborn developed the experience using Unreal gaming software for VR. After putting on the VR headset, the viewer is seated and given an Oculus-enabled steering wheel. The steering wheel is linked to the VR world, allowing viewers to steer their chosen car on the racetrack.

Shazam Partnership: The brand is also excited to announce a unique partnership with Shazam, where Mountain Dew becomes the very first brand to launch a VR campaign on the popular app – giving fans the opportunity to experience exclusive VR content when they scan Pitch Black or Baja Blast bottles using Visual Shazam. Once the bottle is scanned, fans will be able to view the VR content within the app and choose to vote on their favorite beverage as part of DEWcision 2016.

New VR Hub: In addition, the brand is launching a first-of-its-kind dedicated VR hub at MountainDew.com/VR that features all of DEW’s VR content in a way that’s playable straight from your mobile phone.

And now for the dancing cat. In celebration of DEW’s new Kickstart commercial, which features a twerking cat, DEW is launching a mobile site extension called “Kitty Wop.”  Kitty Wop is a shareable, customizable mobile experience showcasing the star character from the spot. Fans can customize their own Kitty Wop video to “Wiggle Wop,” choosing from a variety of dance moves, backgrounds, and memes with text overlay options like “Meow or never” and “Do that Wiggle Wop.”

Power Up With Loot Crate

One of the main themes in any comic book, sci-fi, or fantasy story is that someone is looking for power. Whether it is the hero or villain the quest for power is always there. Thankfully for those of us who have a Loot Crate subscription we don’t need to go on an epic quest. We have all the power we need and then some sent to us by Loot Crate.

One of my favorite items is the Infinity Gauntlet from Marvel. It is an oven mitt perfect for when you are grilling in the summer months. There is a sweet World of Warcraft shirt to celebrate the film that is coming to theaters this month.

This May is a big month for big summer movies! All those epic matchups inspired a look at some of pop culture’s most unstoppable, unrelenting and unbeatable characters and items. No one crate should have all this POWER! Still all of that power is at your hands with Loot Crate.

You will receive about four to six items over $45 of retail value in every crate. You can even get a discount and special gifts if you sign up for a 12 month plan. These crates are money. Below you can check out my unboxing video from Loot Crate. I was thrilled to get Infinity Gauntlet oven mitt. I will be able to take the heat in the kitchen and the grill this summer with all of that power in that mitt.

There are different themed crates as well. There is a Loot Anime, Loot Gaming, Loot Pets, Firefly, and LVLUp. They even have limited edition Star Wars and Call of Duty crates. You can pick out the best one that fits your style and your budget. Go to www.lootcrate.com for more info on each one and to start your subscription today!
