Day the Earth Stood Still Competition

This visually spectacular SFX blockbuster stars Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly & Jaden Smith. Keanu portrays Klaatu, an alien whose arrival on our planet triggers a global upheaval. As governments and scientists race to unravel the mystery behind the visitor’s appearance, a woman (Jennifer Connelly) and her young stepson get caught up in his mission – and come to understand the ramifications of his being a self-described “friend to the Earth.”

To celebrate the release of the new movie Day the Earth Stood Still we are giving one lucky viewer the chance to WIN AN EARTH STOPPING ADVENTURE to the all new Atlantis Hotel in DUBAI!

Prize Details:
Major Prize:
- 2 return economy class, direct flights to Dubai on Emirates
- 5 nights accommodation at Atlantis Hotel The Palm Dubai including daily breakfast
- Return private vehicle transfers from the airport
- Sundowner Dune Dinner
- $1,000 spending money

If you knew the Earth was about to stand still, what’s the one thing you’d save?
a. Friends/Family
b. Playstation
c. iPod
d. Beer Fridge

I got excited because I thought this said Dubbo to start with.

However, Dubai would be just as lovely ... thank you kindly for the post.

LOL, the way I feel about my family at the moment, I put Beer Fridge as my answer!

karencleotronic - 14-12-2008 @ 08:16 AM

I am a little confused about this comp. Is there a right or a wrong answer for this question???

I heard or seen anything about this movie, so that is why i am not sure if it is trick question and there was something that the people in the movie saved!!!

I think it is a crazy question really, of course everyone would rightfully save their family!!! ;););)

karencleotronic you don't know my family, the beer fridge is looking awfully inviting at the moment! LOL!

Anyone else notice the deleted items from the Terms and Conditions document?

It seems to indicate that there is a comp on the website to vote for your favourite sporting moment of 2008 from 5 pre-selected options to win $10,000. Commenced 10 December closes 24 December.

I've searched the site but cannot find it

missmuffet - 14-12-2008 @ 11:16 AM

Saw that too - the terms are a real mishmash aren't they? Had a look see but couldn't find anything relating to it.

My friend recently had a holiday in Dubai and I saw her photos today. It looks like quite an amazing place.

debrastasia35 - 14-12-2008 @ 11:54 AM

I have friends who moved there for work last year. I would love to see them especially as we all have young kids and they grow so fast. They live across the water from the Atlantis Hotel and this would truely be an amazing holiday if we won!
Thanks to Ashke for posting!!!!!
Just remember if you win that Dubai is a Muslim country with strict laws regarding the prohibition of alcohol without a permit and public displays of affection - recently a Brit couple were arrested for having sex on a beach ... a BIG NO NO there.

ashke - 14-12-2008 @ 02:16 PM

blecch, who would have sex on the beach?? too much sand, getting into too many crevices :P:P:P

rider23320 - 14-12-2008 @ 03:30 PM

That will just have to be my lot in life.. If i win. :D:D:D

debrastasia35 - 14-12-2008 @ 10:17 PM

On the site it says all entries go into the draw.

catbat - 15-12-2008 @ 11:51 AM

Thanks ashke this is one of my dreams especially with spending money! I have known many people who've worked here & my ex neighbour is prob. moving ther in April for work! Totally decadent city! But muslim & strict! go figure! Obviously greed & excess aren't part of muslim law!! :D

Dobbo - 17-12-2008 @ 04:49 AM

Went to Dubai for 1st time in January. I'm now an Emirates Frequent Flyer and use it as a pit stop between Europe and here. I love it!!!! :)

griffin - 17-12-2008 @ 01:58 PM

The beer fridge is my choice too, (I'll sell most of my relllies if anyone was mad enough to pay me a dollar for them)

Only instead of beer think I'll put whoever inside & forget to let them out :P:P:P

Thomo473 - 26-12-2008 @ 11:48 PM

Many thanks Ashke

I would like to win this so I could take my girlfriend there. Her husband works there on helicopters. Has 3 months on and one month off.

My friend is quite fragile and has had MS for a long time, so it would be great for her to see where hubby works and lives most of the time, and of cos a break from kids.
