Fans can relive every heart-pounding second of television's groundbreaking show when the 24 complete series DVD box set arrives on December 14. For the hardcore fan of Jack Bauer, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is hosting the 24 Marathon Challenge and Fan Fest experience at Hollywood and Highland, located at 6801 Hollywood Blvd., in Los Angeles.
Here are the key details: Beginning on December 2, fans will come together to watch continuous episodes of 24 in an attempt to break the current Guinness World Record of 86 hours for longest television viewing. Participants will experience Jack Bauer's longest days with the last alert fan winning $10,000 and becoming the ultimate 24 enthusiast. Kiefer Sutherland would be proud.
Starting today, fans can enter the 24 contest and get the official rules online here. The Marathon Challenge is open to the first 100 registered participants, who are 18 years or older and will be in the Los Angeles area between December 2 and December 6, 2010.
Fans unable to participate in the marathon are invited to discover more 24 with original props form the series, see behind-the-scenes footage and meet cast members from the show. Cast member schedule will be announced online prior to the event here. Fans living outside Los Angeles can also check out video, photos and links to live streaming footage from the event by visiting www.Facebook.com/24 to witness the fandom.
The 24 complete series is a must-have collectible box set that includes all eight seasons and is bursting with bonus features including deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, a comprehensive retrospective, an epilogue to the series and much more. Additionally, the final season of 24 arrives to Blu-ray and DVD on December 14 with extended and never-before-seen bonus footage for fans.
