Competition: Win the Twelve Monkeys Limited Edition DVD with free pandemic face mask!

Twelve Monkeys is directed by Terry Gilliam and stars Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe and Brad Pitt. The film grossed $168.8 million worldwide and was released to critical praise. Brad Pitt was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, and won a Golden Globe Award for his performance.

Between the past and the future, sanity and madness, dreams and reality, lies the mystery of the Twelve Monkeys.. the year is 2035 and humankind subsists in a desolate netherworld following the eradication of 99% of the Earth’s population, a holocaust that makes the planet’s surface uninhabitable and mankind’s destiny uncertain.

Cole (Bruce Willis) a reluctant volunteer aided by Dr. Kathryn Railly (Madeline Stowe) have only two clues to solve the puzzle of the Twelve Monkeys which threatens to completely erase humanity from the planet…

Twelve Monkeys was inspired by Chris Marker’s 1962 short film La Jetée,. Terry Gilliam had not seen the film (he makes a principle not to see or read the original) but agreed to doing Twelve Monkeys because of the script and its conceptual similarities to his 1985 film Brazil.

Bruce Willis and Madeline Stowe took a pay cut for the chance to work with Terry Gilliam. Brad Pitt’s star-status rose in the time between filming finished and the film being released. In this interim Pitt appeared in Interview With A Vampire, Legends Of The Fall and Seven.

Gilliam reportedly gave Willis a list of ‘Bruce Willis acting clichés’ to avoid, these included the ‘steely blue eyes look’. Gilliam was also said to be afraid that Brad Pitt wouldn’t be able to pull off the nervous, rapid speech required, so he sent him to a speech coach. In the end all he needed to do was to take Pitt’s cigarettes away and he played the part perfectly.

Closing date: Midnight (GMT) on 30/12/2020.
