Hummingbird exclusive preview screening

100 tickets to give away

This competition is now closed.

Hummingbird marks the directorial debut of Oscar® nominated screenwriter Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Dirty Pretty Things), from his own original screenplay. It stars Jason Statham, with BAFTA award winner Vicky McClure, Agata Buzek and Benedict Wong.

Living homeless after going on the run from a military court-martial, Joey Jones (Statham) is a damaged ex-special forces soldier trapped in London’s criminal underworld. But when opportunity enables him to assume another man’s identity, he is transformed into an avenging angel.

A brutal, and yet surprisingly tender, thriller, Hummingbird is released in cinemas nationwide on June 28, but we have 50 pairs of tickets to give away for an exclusive preview screening. The screening will take place at the May Fair Hotel in London on 21 June 2013, at 6pm (for a 6.30pm start).

To be in with a chance of winning, submit your details below, noting the full terms and conditions of entry.

The May Fair Hotel

A legendary hotel with an iconic past, the May Fair was opened by King George V in 1927 and since became an A-list playground for the Hollywood set. A £75 million transformation later and the May Fair is once more one of London’s most talked-about hotels.

More than a hotel, the May Fair is a collection of experiences, from Quince, a destination restaurant that forsakes the formality of five-star dining, to the Cigar Room, an intimate enclave that recreates the outdoors in. The May Fair Bar includes a magnum fridge bristling with rare pleasures, and the discreet May Fair Spa is an urban retreat with a modern, results-focused approach to wellbeing. Each one unique, the May Fair’s stunning signature suites are recognized as among the most beautiful rooms in London. Business travellers benefit from a 24/7 business centre and dedicated meetings area with abundant natural light, and high speed Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the hotel.

The May Fair is unique in its ability to facilitate new experiences. It’s a place to meet and explore new possibilities; from the intimate to the extravagant; from the physical to the aesthetic. It’s the beginning of another small adventure you’ll just have to tell someone about.
