MPRM and Magnolia pictures has provided us with a great prize pack to celebrate the release of “THE OXFORD MURDERS”.

When an elderly woman is viciously murdered in Oxford, her body is discovered by two strangers whose lives are immediately changed forever: Arthur Seldom (John Hurt), a prestigious professor of logic, and Martin (Elijah Wood), a young graduate student who has just arrived at the university hoping to be Seldom’s pupil.

It quickly becomes clear that hers is the first in a series of increasingly bizarre murders, with each victim’s corpse marked by strange symbols. Professor and student join forces to try and crack the code, setting into motion an elaborate game with the killer with ever-increasing stakes.  As Martin gets closer to the facts, he grows increasingly unhinged from his grasp on the world around him.

Based on Guillermo Martinez’s award-winning novel, THE OXFORD MURDERS is an edgy and intelligent thriller from cult-favorite director, Álex de la Iglesia.

Can’t Wait to see “THE OXFORD MURDERS”?  Well you are in luck!  This Friday, July 2nd, the film will premiere on VOD, Xbox Live, Playstation, Amazon & Vudu!  The film will open in theatres around the country on August 6th.

SAN DIEGO, CA, June 28, 2010… Surf Dog Ricochet, the SURFice dog who lives a lifestyle of helping others by pawing it forward, and who recently won 3rd place in the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge Surf competition, has reached a new milestone – 10,000 fans on Facebook!  This fan base has also help raise almost $30,000 in donations for Ricochet’s charitable causes!

Ricochet started her Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/SurfDogRicochet in December of 2009 to help raise awareness and funds for her charities.  Now, just six months later, she’s reached the 10,000 fan mark, which grows every day.

Many people join Ricochet’s Facebook page after watching her inspirational YouTube video, “From service dog to SURFice dog”, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGODurRfVv4. They often leave comments such as I watched the video and couldn’t stop crying! She’s so inspiring, so amazing!”, or “Wow! After my tears dried I couldn’t wait to learn more about you and all that you do. You’re one of a kind!”

Although folks join Ricochet’s page as “fans”, they quickly become much more than that.  They share a connection… a common bond, which deepens the relationship to one of mutual support, inspiration and friendship.  Her 10,000th fan, Rosemary Catherine is the epitome of this shared connection, as both she and Ricochet support “Surfers Healing“, an organization that exposes autistic children to the unique experience of surfing.

Another fan, Lara Davis who is studying to be a teacher for children with special needs shared the 10,000th celebration by saying “I was truly touched (and in tears!) I love the message and the outreach efforts ricochet puts fourth. I’ve always thought animals such as Ricochet could make a big difference in the lives of children”.

Reaching this key milestone demonstrates how much Ricochet’s worldwide community supports her efforts.  Her supporters have helped her raise awareness and funds… to the tune of almost $30,000 for both human and animal causes!  In fact, two fundraising campaigns were funded almost entirely by her Facebook supporters.  A canine cancer walk garnered $1820 in donations, and an arthritis walk raised over $5580 in donations.

Ricochet sincerely thanks each and every one of her supporters, and looks forward to a continued relationship of actively engaging them in Facebook conversations, while providing them with updates featuring her day-to-day activities, fundraising efforts, causes, events, news, photos, videos, articles, and FUN!  She is currently fundraising for Helen Woodward Animal Center’s orphaned animals, and anticipates another successful outcome with the help of her amazing supporters!
