BARE Exclusive: Ruby Sparks Free Screening and Contest!

When's the last time you read a good book and wished the characters and places were actually real? For some of us, our prayers were answered with the building of the Harry Potter Wizarding World in Orlando, Florida, and boy were we ecstatic. But maybe "ecstatic" isn't exactly the right word to describe the feelings of writer Calvin, the main character in the upcoming film Ruby Sparks. When his own words come to life and take shape in the form of a girl he then starts to fall in love with, Calvin is a little shocked to say the least.

Brought to you by the same directors who gave us Little Miss Sunshine, Ruby Sparks hits theaters July 25th. But with the help of Fox Searchlight Pictures, BARE is able to give you an exclusive sneak peak of the movie on the 24th as well as an opportunity to win VIP seats and a sweet prize pack.

BARE readers in the Berkeley/Bay Area need to simply click over to gofobo and enter the code BAREQ0C7 to score two free passes to the early screening.

But aren't boring regular seats and going home empty-handed just...not good enough? They wouldn't be good enough for us either. Here's an even easier way to get yourself something better!

Actor Paul Dano as Calvin and actress/writer Zoe Kazan as Ruby on the set of Ruby Sparks.

All you have to do is answer the following question in the comments below (and leave your email address) and you will be entered to win two VIP seats and the chance to win a Ruby Sparks prize pack:

What would you write to life?

5 lucky winners will win a pair of VIP seating tickets and one grand prize winner will win VIP seating tickets and the prize pack (which includes a bunch of summertime Ruby Sparks goodies like posters, nail polish, tote bags, and beach towels!).

Better hurry though. The contest ends July 23 at 9 PM PST! And click fast for the gofobo passes, because there is only a limited amount available. Check out the Ruby Sparks trailer below, and get excited!
