An advance screening of Summit Entertainment's upcoming action-drama Snitch, has been set up for next week Thursday, February 21, 7PM at the Showplace Icon in Chicago, IL, and we've been allotted 25 free passes to hand out to S&A readers for that screening.
Dwayne Johnson stars as a father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years. Desperate and determined to rescue his son at all costs, he makes a deal with the U.S. attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a dangerous mission, risking everything, including his family and his own life.
Michael K. Williams co-stars as a narcotics kingpin with a short temper who becomes involved with Johnson's character.
Benjamin Bratt and Susan Sarandon also co-star in a film that is said to be based on a real life PBS Frontline documentary.
The film is directed by Ric Roman Waugh.
Snitch is set to be released on February 22, but you can see it a day early, on February 21. To qualify for 1 of the 25 passes, all you have to do is, in the spirit of the movie's themes, name a film that touches on any one of the following themes:
- Stresses the importance of strong fathers and role models.
- Stresses the importance of being oneself/staying true to self.
- Features a character who takes a stand for something they believe in
Just pick one of those themes and name a film that fits. You can do so right in the comment section below. Assuming there are more than 25 responses, I'll randomly select 25 winners from them.
NOTE: Each single pass admits 2 people! So you can take someone along with you if you win.
You have until next Monday, February 18 to enter, so dig in.
Here's the trailer again:
