The director's cut of Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, complete with never-seen-before footage, is released on video by Universal Pictures on 6 December. And there are five limited-edition box sets of the video to be won - each worth pounds 30 - plus 10 other copies in our Independent on Sunday Lock, Stock competition.

Starring Nick Moran, Sting and - most infamously - the former footballer Vinnie Jones, Lock, Stock has been dubbed the Italian Job of the 1990s. Guy Ritchie's film delves deep into the East End underworld of card-sharps, drug-dealers and debt-collectors. The box sets on offer include a wide- screen video, a copy of the screenplay, and a set of poker chips and playing cards in a Hatchet Harry-style mock-croc briefcase - the ideal accessory for recreating the centre- piece scene in your own home. As well as five box sets, there are also 10 ordinary Lock, Stock: The Director's Cut videos to be won.

For the chance to be among the winners, answer the following three questions:

1) Who played the gangster twins' mother in The Krays?

2) Who played Bob Hoskins's moll in The Long Good Friday (1979)?

3) Which city was the scene of the crime in The Italian Job?

Send your answers, with your name, address, and daytime telephone number to: Lock, Stock Competition, Culture, Independent on Sunday, One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5DL, to arrive by Friday 26 November. Senders of the first five correctly answered entries pulled from the hat after the closing date will win a box set. Ten runners-up will receive a video. No cash alternative. The editor's decision is final. No correspondence will be entered into. Usual competition rules apply. Applicants must be aged 18 or over. The results will be published next Sunday.
