Contest Giveaway: 3 DVD Copies Of 'Chronicle'

While "The Avengers" is currently holding the mantle of the superhero movie of 2012, earlier this year something a bit more sly and subversive hit theaters: Josh Trank's "Chronicle." A kind of coming-of-age story told through the prism of the superhero genre, the film is a unique and original tale that finds teens newly blessed with superpowers not putting on tights to save the world, but mostly just trying to figure out what it all means, while harnessing and refining their skills. Made on a modest budget, the movie is a pretty exciting piece of work with an explosive finale. In case you missed it, we've got a few DVD copies for some lucky readers.
