Ever wanted to visit the United States and go on a road trip with three of your friends to Area51, the Grand Canyon and Lake Mead? Here’s your chance!
Heaven Media has teamed up with Alienware and Universal Pictures to bring you a fantastic new competition involving Universal’s new comedy PAUL, which will be in cinemas on Valentine’s Day. The movie, which revolves around the question ‘Are aliens living among us?’, features Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) as two sci-fi geeks, whose pilgrimage takes them to America’s UFO heartland.
“While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever. For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town—a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Frost).”
The eponymous alien hadn’t just landed though. He has been living amongst us for sixty years, which begs the question of what a visitor to our planet would do with all that free time on his four-fingered hands? What would he have learned in his time amongst us? Are there any unexplained historical deeds that could be perhaps attributed to this tourist from another world? How surprised would he be to see that elements of his own culture had already become part of our own? How would he feel seeing the Alienware logo emblazoned across some of the finest examples of Earth gaming technology?
And this is where you come in!
Alienware and Universal Pictures invite you to write your own storylines about alien Paul’s life on earth (he’s been on the planet for the past 60 years). You are completely free to choose the style of your storyline entry, so whether you prefer written text, art, a movie or something else, it’s all up to you. Just be as creative as possible; the use of humour gives you bonuspoints.
The best story will win a four-day road trip for you and three guests in an RV, taking in such sights as Area 51, the Grand Canyon and Lake Mead. This prize includes return flights to Las Vegas, a night in a Vegas hotel, five days of RV hire and your travel insurance. Alongside this great prize, you will also recieve a state-of-the-art M17x laptop to go with it!
The competition will close on the 24th of March. For more information on how to participate as well as the terms and conditions, visit the Alienware Paul competition page HERE.
