VAN NUYS, CA — DreamZone Entertainment would like to remind store owners that they have only one week left to submit their Romeo and Juliet display contest entries. 

In December, the celebrated parody studio began offering retail shop owners the opportunity to compete for a chance to win $1,000 in DVDs. The contest deadline is February 21, 2012. 

For those who’ve yet to participate, the rules are as follows: construct a romance-themed display centered on DreamZone’s Romeo and Juliet, take photos of your creation and send them to Adam Hasner, VP of DreamZone.  

For their Romeo and Juliet showcase, contestants can order extra copies of the movie and are free to use any of the film’s current promo materials, including the photos, trailers and poster. Judgment of the entries will be based upon creativity and effective merchandising. The winner will be announced on February 28, 2012.

“Just one more week everyone!” stated Hasner. “I strongly urge any retailers who haven’t submitted their entries to get them in as soon as possible. Don’t miss this great opportunity to boost your Valentine’s Day sales. Having a striking Romeo & Juliet display this time of year will not only grab the attention of your average adult consumer, but will attract couples and seasonal customers as well. We encourage all contestants to visit the DreamZone website and check out some of the submissions photos. I’m not going to lie, the competition is pretty stiff, but it is still anyone’s game. I look forward to seeing all the future entries and announcing our big winner. Good luck to all!” 

DreamZone Entertainment presents a sensual reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed love, Romeo and Juliet. This modern-day adaptation aims to position hardcore eroticism while remaining true to the original vision. The company hopes that its transition between Shakespearean poetics and current vernacular provides contemporary audiences with a more palatable rendition. 

Set in present time, the story commences with Romeo (Rocco Reed) heart-broken over the loss of his former girlfriend Rosalyn (Andy San Dimas).  Through the consolation of his loyal friend Benvolio, Romeo discovers comfort in the arms of the equally woeful Juliet (Chanel Preston). Despite the unending feud which rages between their families, the two lovers forbid the ensuing turmoil to obstruct their union. When the strife spirals out of control, Romeo and Juliet are left with dire consequences and life-altering decisions to make. Following the impassioned duo through this chaos are India Summer (Lady Capulet), Anthony Rosano (Tybalt), Ann Marie Rios (Polly), Brian Street Team (Benvolio), and AVN Hall of Famer Tom Byron (Capulet patriarch).
