Contest On Facebook and Twitter Offers Fans the Chance to Win a Prop from the Film and Other Prizes Ahead of February 28 Theatrical and March 4th VOD Release

The Bag Man, starring John Cusack, Rebecca Da Costa and Robert De Niro is set for theatrical release on Friday, February 28, 2014. It opens in NYC and LA before expanding the following week.

A #WhatsInTheBag contest will offer fans the opportunity to win the actual prop of the mysterious bag used in the film, filled with exclusive prizes.

The Bag Man is a crime thriller that centers around the ultimate test of trust and loyalty. It tells the story of “Jack,” a fixer in the underworld, who is given an unusual task of collecting a mysterious bag while being under strict instructions not to look in the bag. He finds himself stuck in a seedy motel, guarding the bag, while waiting for the grand arrival of his boss.

Cusack plays “Jack,” turning in a grittier version of the sort of character he played in 1997’s Grosse Pointe Blank. As crime boss “Dragna” De Niro is utterly in his element, playing a charismatic crime boss, who despite his exterior charm, projects a sense of underlying menace throughout the film.

Brazilian actress Rebecca Da Costa turns in a sultry performance as “Rivka,” a mysterious femme fatale who appears to know more than she lets on and is also holed up at the same motel as “Jack”.

Entering the contest is simple; requiring fans to follow @TheBagManMovie on Twitter and then take a guess as to what they think is in the bag, using the hashtag, #WhatsInTheBag.

Fans can also enter to win through Facebook, simply by leaving their guess as to what’s in the bag as a comment on the “Guess what’s in the bag?” post on The Bag Man Movie’s Facebook page:

Fans can double their chance to win, by entering on both Facebook and Twitter. Participants have until 11:59pm on March 31st to enter the contest.
