Merriweather Post Pavilion CD Giveaway + Gigantic (The Movie) Ticket Giveaway

Paul Dano and Zooey Deschanel in Gigantic

Gigantic, the new film by Matt Aselton (not to be confused with Gigantic: A Tale of Two Johns) starring Paul Dano, Zooey Deschanel, John Goodman and Zach Galifianakis opens in NYC on April 3rd at the Village East Cinema. Gigantic‘s soundtrack (though it’s not really clear if a soundtrack CD is in the making) features music by likes of Animal Collective, Masta Killa and Roddy Bottom, and so, with that in mind I’m giving away a few copies of Merriweather Post Pavilion and two tickets to a screening of Gigantic at the Village East Cinema. If you’d like to play, just answer the following easily googleable question: What movie is Paul Dano currently filming in NYC with Katie Holmes and Kevin Kline? First place gets the movie tickets (to be used during the time the film is playing at the Village East) plus a CD, second and third place get a CD. Send your answers to, winners will be notified on April 1. Good Luck!

Oh, and one more thing, on Wednesday, April 1 you can catch an advance preview of Gigantic at the 92Y Tribeca with a Q&A afterwards.

Join us for a sneak peek at the new film Gigantic, a NY romance starring Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) and indie princess Zooey Deschanel. Screening followed by discussion with director Matt Aselton, star Paul Dano and columnist Steve Ramos. Co-presented by indieWIRE. Director: Matt Aselton. 2008. 99 min. (Buy Tickets)
