With the impending DVD release of Zack Snyder’s “300″, Warner Home Video is oiling up the promotional gears for a full frontal assault. First up is a Join The 300 campaign, where you, the everyday movie geek, can enter into a contest for a chance to win free trips to Comic Con to meet Snyder and company, and take a tour of the “Watchmen” set in Canada. And yes, I’m thinking the same thing you are: Keep the Comic Con trip, I want a set tour of “Watchmen”!! Head on below for the details and how to win those groovy prizes.

Warner Home Video (WHV) announced today the launch of www.JoinThe300.com, an interactive online site featuring 300-related challenges for fans to complete and boasting social networking and user-generated content functionality, in anticipation of the July 31st DVD release of 300, the box office sensation that has earned more than $200 million at the U.S. box office.

Beginning on June 21st , fans of 300 can log on to www.JoinThe300.com for a chance to win one of two trips to the upcoming Comic-Con International in San Diego, California, where the two winners will compete head-to-head for the grand prize — a once in a lifetime trip to visit the set of Zack Snyder’s upcoming film Watchmen.

Warner Home Video will also offer random prize giveaways to fans just for registering for the web site, including 300 DVD mini posters signed by Zack Snyder and featuring exclusive art not available anywhere else, iPod shuffles, and 300 DVDs. The two winners of the www.JoinThe300.com contest will receive travel to San Diego, hotel accommodations, passes to Comic-Con and a per diem for themselves and a guest.

Visitors to www.JoinThe300.com will take part in multiple Spartan-themed “missions,” ranging from creating 300 video mash-ups to answering trivia questions about the film to creating their own television commercial for the film. Tasks will be assigned escalating point values based on difficulty, and all contestants earning 300 points or more will be entered in a random drawing for the two trips to the annual Comic-Con International convention in San Diego from July 26th — July 29th. The two winners will then compete against each other in a final mission. The victor of this epic battle will win the trip to the set of 300 director Zack Snyder’s new film Watchmen.
