Black History Month Giveaway 2013: Win a ‘Beautiful Creatures’ prize pack

It’s Black History Month and we’re rolling out our annual giveaway sweepstakes with a prize pack from the new Warner Bros. feature film Beautiful Creatures, which is currently playing in theaters nationwide.

We’ve been provided with gifts for two lucky readers. Prizes include a soft back “Beautiful Creatures” novel with an exclusive poster, and a canvas messenger bag.

Viola Davis plays Amma, a South Carolina housekeeper with supernatural powers. When Ethan (the young man she cares for) falls for the new girl, Lena, a battle between good and evil ensues. The official film synopsis reads:

Ethan Wate, 17, has had the same recurring dream for months. A mysterious young girl is waiting for him on a Civil War battlefield. Ethan desperately wants to be with her, but there is an unknown danger-and each time a lightning bolt cracks like a gunshot, killing Ethan before he ever reaches the girl.

The danger of this strange dream world, however, is preferable to Ethan’s waking existence in Gatlin, South Carolina, a small, conservative Southern town that hasn’t caught up to the 21st century, where nothing ever changes and nothing ever happens. Trapped at home with a father who has completely withdrawn since the sudden death of Ethan’s mother, Ethan yearns for a life he can only read about in books.

But Ethan’s mundane world is shaken up with the arrival of Lena Duchannes, the beautiful and enigmatic niece of Macon Ravenwood, the reclusive owner of gothic Ravenwood Manor. Ethan finds himself immediately drawn to Lena, even though destruction seems to inexplicably follow her and it becomes apparent that she is a Caster, with powers beyond her control. The town, led by conservative Mrs. Lincoln, wants her banished. Even Gatlin’s all-knowing librarian, Amma, is afraid history may repeat itself-a history of family secrets and a curse that looms for Lena as she approaches her 16th birthday. It is that time when a Caster is chosen by the forces of either the Light or the Dark.

But Lena’s fate may already be sealed by the curse that draws both her and Ethan into a tangled web of spells and peril from which there may be no escape.
