The Week: Media News - Brit flick giveaway in MoS

The Mail on Sunday will follow its recent giveaway of Prince's latest album by covermounting an unreleased British film, The Riddle, which stars the former footballer Vinnie Jones, Vanessa Redgrave and Derek Jacobi.

At least 2.5 million DVDs of the new film will be given away with the 16 September edition, and the paper has reportedly told the film's director, Brendan Foley, that as a result of the giveaway, The Riddle will be able to claim the highest-ever opening day viewing figures of any British film.
