Geek For E!

Geeky Giveaway: World War Z soundtracks!

The movie came a’tcha at the speed of sound.  So isn’t it just and right that you get your hands on the soundtrack?  Y’know, the soundtrack by Muse and Marco “I wrote the soundtrack for Scream” Beltrami that Huffington Post says is “Perfect”?  Yes, you need it.  Here at Geek for e, we’d like to help you with that.



We’ve got 4 copies of the original soundtrack to World War Z, and we’re giving ’em away!  Yes, yes we are.  How to you win yourself a copy?  It’s easy.

What’s your favorite horror movie music?  The Exorcist‘s “Tubular Bells”?  Or maybe when John Carpenter tweaked that score for HalloweenJaws‘ scary-cool DA-DUM?  Or the 80s throwdown of The Lost Boys?

THERE’S NO WRONG ANSWER FOLKS.  I’m just curious.  And I’ll pick four winners from among the entries.

How to enter?  Oh, you know the drill.  Send me an email with the subject line “Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse With Muse“.  Include your name, snail-mail address (how else am I gonna get it to you?) and a bit about your favorite horror movie music.  That’s it.  Do it by Monday, July 1st at 5:00pm and you could be a winner!

No guarantees that Muse’s music will soothe the savage zombie, however.  For defeating the hordes of undead you’re on your own.

But if you’re holding a copy of the World War Z soundtrack?  Just know I’ll be jealous of you as I sprint away from the infected.

(NOTE: This giveaway is for US folks only.  Because I’m too cheap to send out to winners overseas.  There, I said it.)

Baltimore Screening: World War Z – June 18, 2013

Just when you thought it was safe to not shoot shuffling hordes in the head…. Wanna get in on how to save the world from the zombie invasion?  Of course you do.  And we’re here to help, with free passes to the Baltimore screening of World War Z.  Squee!  Yeah, I squee’d.  I’m excited, I won’t lie.

From the fabulous folks that bring us all our PR goodies:

A former UN investigator is thrust into the middle of trying to stop what could be the end of the world.  Worldwide destruction sends him around the globe seeking clues about what they are fighting and what it will take to defeat it, as he tries to save the lives of billions of strangers, as well as his own beloved family.

And don’t forget to check out the trailer.  Because it’s kinda awesome.  Plus, it’s PG-13, so there’ll be more gangbusters than gore, methinks.  Which means you don’t have to pass on munchies.  You’ll be able to keep ’em down.

Read on for exactly how to get some face time with Brad Pitt and the zombies!

World War Z! Muse! London! Pictures!

Yippee — it’s June!  And you know what that means?  No, not an even more excessive use of exclamation points from me.  It means that we’re thisclose to seeing World War Z on the big screen!  Another exclamation!  Worth it!

Ahem.  Anyway, the World Premiere was in London and it looked (like I missed it) awesome.  And bonus for all you music lovers out there; Muse held a concert.  Yeah, I know; I like ’em too.  Panic Station, anyone?  Yeah baby.  Oh; Muse has a song on the WWZ soundtrack.  Which is just one more plus in that film’s column, if you ask me.

A few pics from the event, to make it seem like you were there.  Just try to brush the Pop-Tart crumbs off your gym shorts first.  It’ll give you that classy feel.  And you’ll be one step ahead of me.

World War Z opens June 21, 2013.  Let ’em come!  Another exclamation!  Maybe this is the month of heightened excitement?
