A romantic comedy will burst onto cinema screens tomorrow (Friday), and Mercury readers could win tickets to the action.

Long Shot will be shown at the Odeon cinema, in The Centre, at various times.

The films stars Seth Rogen as Fred Flarsky, a gifted and free-spirited political journalist with an affinity for trouble, who tries to hook up with his old babysitter, Charlotte Field, who now holds an important government position.

Charlotte, played by Charlize Theron, is one of the most influential women in the world as a powerhouse diplomat.

The two have nothing in common, except she was his childhood crush.

When Fred unexpectedly reconnects with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humour and his memories of her youthful idealism.

As she prepares to make a run to become president of America, Charlotte hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors, and sparks begin to fly.
