For months, "Vampire Academy" fans have been watching like hawks as the incoming student roster at St. Vladimir's elite institution for the education of the be-fanged fills out with names. Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry and Danila Kozlovsky are among the young actors tapped to star in "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters," the big-screen adaptation of the beloved books by Richelle Mead, and it is very exciting. But even more exciting? You, too, could find yourself walking the halls of St. Vlad's, making friends with Moroi royalty and draining the life essence of the living on the set of the film! (...Okay, maybe not that last one. But you didn't really want to slurp out the innards of an actual human being like some sort of walking Capri Sun pouch, right? Uh...right?)
Here's the dealio: The studio is running a sweepstakes starting now and through June 26, offering one "Vampire Academy" fan the chance to win an exclusive prize package: a four-day trip to London, including airfare and accommodations, where the winner will spend one day hobnobbing with the cast and crew on set, and the rest of the time being escorted about by a knowledgeable tour guide to see all the city's finest sights. Also, you'll be given a video camera with which to document the experience and make all your friends insanely jealous.
With more than a dozen novels of the romantic persuasion to his name, there's no denying author Nicholas Sparks knows a thing or two about love—something that will be further apparent when his latest big-screen adaptation, "Safe Haven" (starring Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough) opens on Valentine's Day.
In celebration of the film, we're giving away a date night worthy of the King of Romance. Try this on for size: One lucky winner will receive a $100 gift card for Open Table and a $30 Fandango gift card to woo the one they love!

The Games have begun!
"The Hunger Games" hit theaters today, and we finally get to see the first installment of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian trilogy unfold on the big screen. If you are a dedicated fan, you may have already taken the full virtual tour of The Capitol courtesy of Lionsgate and Microsoft, with a computer equipped with Internet Explorer 9.
If not, then maybe it’s time to upgrade your setup. Well, consider us your sponsor sending a parachute your way! We are giving away a special edition Hunger Games Windows PC, laser-engraved with "The Hunger Games" movie title and District 12 insignia to one lucky winner!
Katniss Everdeen is in much better shape than I am. It's a rather obvious sentiment, I'm sure, but one I discovered to be true in both theory and practice when I entered New York Sports Club's Arena for their new Train Like A Tribute workout.
Along with a handful of editors—er—Tributes, I was invited to sweat through a 45-minute class inspired by "The Hunger Games" and its tough-as-nails protagonist. After a quick warm-up, we lined up to race towards a makeshift Cornucopia for our supplies (resistance bow, weights, towels, mats—and if we were really lucky—water bottles and snacks), which we then used for a series of circuit workouts. Despite their cheeky names (Katniss Killers, Capitol Crunches, Jabber Jays Jacks, Peeta Presses), the rigorous moves—meant to embody survival skills like tree climbing and archery—packed quite the punch.
Are you a "Hunger Games" fan? Are you super-duper-psyched for "The Hunger Games" movie to come out? And are you so impatient over the OMG SO LONG wait until the film hits theaters that you're pretty sure you will actually die if you can't get in to see it before March 23?
Well, we've got good news! Some of you will, in fact, have the exclusive opportunity to see an advance screening of "The Hunger Games" in your very own city...that is, if you can impress your sponsors with your rabid fandom enough to win the privilege. Lionsgate has announced 24 screenings in 24 select cities—cities which will be determined based on the sheer volume of tweets you can generate on their behalf. (The bad news: If your city doesn't get selected, you'll just have to wait for the official release like everyone else...in which case, please try not to die.)
Here's how it works: Just as in "The Hunger Games," the country has been divided into 12 unique districts—each of which will host two screenings in the two cities that get the most votes. Check the map to find your district, then get ready to impress your sponsor with some loud-and-proud tweets using the #HungerGames24 hashtag associated with your closest available city. (Note: If you live in District 10, pay special attention... 'cause your sponsor is us! We expect to see some serious stanning on the Twitter, y'all.)
