Romeo & Juliet 2013

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Doth with their death bury their parents' strife
With their death, a story made eternal.
God I love iambic pentametre. This should be a mandate on Twitter one day. Tweet only in iambic pentametre. Would we say as much stupid sh-t if we were saying it in iambic pentametre?
Romeo & Juliet has survived half a millenium. It will go on for another half and more. And now there’s a new movie starring Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth. Two new clips have recently been released. We have the Canadian exclusive video introduction to Romeo below. And below that is the introduction to Juliet that was released Tuesday.
Also… We’re giving away tickets to see the film next Thursday!
With the help of District PR, we’re giving away 5 pairs of tickets per city for screenings in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Victoria, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Halifax. All are on Thursday, October 10th at 7pm in each city. If you’d like a chance to win a pair of tickets, email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Romeo and Juliet - <insert city>” (e.g. Romeo and Juliet – Halifax) as the title before EOD this Friday, October 4th. Draws will be done this weekend so stay close to your email if you enter. Approximate value of each pair is $30. Standard contest terms apply. Good luck!
