Ok, '80s teen movie fans, and anyone who got a kick out of Superbad, Adventureland opens April 3rd, starring Twilight lead Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg (the indie kid from Roger Dodger and The Squid and the Whale). Why should you care? Well, the trailer looks pretty funny, it's from the director of Superbad, and it's set in an amusement park in 1987, which means that possibly this could be a cross between Dazed and Confused, American Graffitti and The Breakfast Club? One can only hope...in the meantime, and for a couple of weeks after the film opens, we've got a cool little blog sweepstakes for everyone, courtesy of Miramax Films. We're giving away (10) sets of Adventureland prize packages, each of which will include an Adventureland T-shirt, movie poster (3-5 of the 10 will be autographed by the cast), and a rare, limited edition Adventureland soundtrack. We say rare because, while the soundtrack will be available for download in digital format, there are only a limited number of hard editions available (slipcase, liner notes and all). And might I say, being a hardcore '80s kid myself, you'll want this soundtrack. Here's the line-up...
Adventureland soundtrack tracklist:
1 Satellite Of Love / Lou Reed
2 Modern Love / David Bowie
3 I'm In Love With A Girl / Big Star
4 Just Like Heaven / The Cure
5 Rock Me Amadeus / Falco
6 Don’t Change / INXS
7 Your Love / The Outfield
8 Don't Dream It's Over / Crowded House
9 Looking For A Kiss / The New York Dolls
10 Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely / Hüsker Dü
11 Unsatisfied / The Replacements
12 Pale Blue Eyes / The Velvet Underground
13 Farewell Adventureland / Yo La Tengo
14 Adventureland Theme Song/Yo La Tengo
So what do you have to do to win? Simple...reply to this blog post with your favorite '80s movie song (i.e. - What soundtrack song in an '80s movie hit you the hardest...you know, something like "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds in The Breakfast Club, or "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel in Say Anything or my personal favorite, "Circle" by Max Carl in Weird Science or maybe "The Road of the Gypsy" by Adrenalin in Iron Eagle...it's tough to pick just one...).
Anyway, yes, comment on this blog post with your favorite tune/artist/movie (and why it rocks), between now and April 17th, we'll then collect all those who've entered, randomly select ten, and send you the goods! Sound good? Good...now rock on with your '80s bad self!
