Your pals here at Scene-Stealers have 20 ‘admit-two’ passes for the advance screening in Kansas City on Tuesday, March 3 at the AMC Olathe Studio 30 (I-35 & 119th).

HOW TO PLAY: The Scavenger Hunt will require the use of our site search engine, located in the upper right hand portion of each page.

When you see a clue, type the answer into the search engine.

One of the pages that comes up will have your next clue on it.

It may not be the first or second page you click on, so make sure you look at them all.

The clues will have a graphic of the Doomsday Clock next to them, and are found in the bottom right-hand corner of the correct pages only.

Type your answer to the question in the search engine and move on to the correct next page.

There are 10 clues before you get to the final answer.

Once you have the final answer,  fill out the form on the last page with all your information, adding your FINAL CORRECT ANSWER.

All entries with the correct answer will be entered to win one of 20 passes. The drawing will be Friday morning Feb. 27, 2009. The winners will be notified by email and receive instructions on how to print off their passes online. If you are one of the lucky 20 winners, please remember to get there early. These screenings are often overbooked. Your pass will have more details on this.

Hint: All answers must be spelled correctly.

Hint: Type all answers in the search engine in lowercase only.

Hint: If you see a page you’ve already been to after searching, you haven’t looked at them all yet.

Hint: Your first clue is at the bottom right hand side of this page.

If you type the answer and spell it correctly it should come back with items related to your search. It worked for me.

TotalFilm.com already has a review of the film up and they say it is very good. I’m not even a Watchmen fan but am really interested to see the movie.

I found the movie to be very entertaining even though I’ve never read the graphic novel… thought it was a nice addition that Snyder used the same kid that played a young Leonidas in “300″ as a young Walter Kovacs… who says there is no nepotism in Hollywood – it’s Snyder’s son, Eli.

It was a little long, but I never lost interest. I’m not sure if the narrative from Rorschach really did the trick, but I could see no one else narrating during the film. Jackie Earle Haley did a great job!

Reviews will wage a war of words against the amount of violence in the film, but it should harm the film at all… hope fully people don’t tire of the genre after the failures of “The Spirit” and Hollywood’s focus on putting forth scores of comic book/graphic novel based films.

I definitely give this one high marks – it won’t win any awards, but it should attract people into theaters and create quite a buzz abroad (regardless if Alan Moore gave the film his blessing or not – after his disagreement with film execs over “V for Vendetta”) the film should rake in more than enough to cover its $100 million dollar budget.
