Paramount Home Media Distribution (PHMD) announced today that it will launch a monthly sweepstakes beginning in January 2012 in honor of the studio’s centennial celebration. Sponsored by Delta Vacations, the sweepstakes will give consumers the chance to win roundtrip airfare and hotel accommodations for three nights in any of the 48 contiguous United States*.

Destinations may include cities inspired by some of Paramount’s classic films such as New York City where Francis Ford Coppola’s epic masterpiece “The Godfather” and the beloved classic “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” were filmed; Chicago, IL where Ferris Bueller had the best day off ever; San Antonio, TX, where the breathtaking drama Wings was filmed with a cast of thousands; or Hollywood, CA, setting and subject of “Sunset Boulevard” and home to countless film productions. Visitors to Paramount’s Facebook page—facebook.com/paramount—can enter every month throughout the year.

Each month, PHMD will release a classic film from the studio’s renowned library for the first time ever on Blu-ray™ under a monthly theme that celebrates Paramount’s rich cinematic history. The year-long program will begin with “Best Picture Winners” in January, led by the winner of the very first Academy Award® for Best Picture, the 1927 World War I drama Wings, debuting on Jan. 24. February’s theme will be “Love Stories” appropriately headlined by the unforgettable 1970 classic “Love Story,” which will make its Blu-ray debut on Feb. 7.

Additional titles scheduled to debut on Blu-ray include Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller “To Catch A Thief” on March 6; the seminal neo-noir classic “Chinatown” on April 3; the hilarious comedy Clueless on “May 1”; John Wayne’s gritty western “Hondo” on June 5; the daring, futuristic adventure “Barbarella” on July 3; and the all-star comedy-mystery “Clue” on Aug. 7.
