UPDATE: Here are the winners of “Warm Bodies” signed posters: Hailey, Dan, Rachel.

Thanks for all the comments and keep watching for more contests.

ORIGINAL POST: I’m still pushing “Warm Bodies” as a great movie to go see tonight as part of your Valentine’s Day plans. To sweeten the pot, I’ve got some posters signed by the cast to give away.

Send me your short review of the movie — whether you saw it last week, will see it tonight or plan to see it next week — and I will put you into a random drawing to win one (1) of three (3) miniature movie posters for the film that’s been signed by the cast. The autographs includes Nicolas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Dave Franco and Analeigh Tipton. I think the other two signatures are writer Isaac Marion and the director Jonathan Levine but I’m not sure.

The movie may not be here for much longer but I still will give you some time. All review comments must be posted by Feb. 22. The winners will be notified and they will be able to pick up their poster at the Fresno Bee during normal working hours.

Here are the official rules:
