Sean Penn actioner The Gunman hits shelves next week, and to mark the release we’ve got a neat competition for you.

We’ve got two prizes up for grabs – the winner will receive both the DVD and the novel the film was based on (Jean-Patrick Manchette’s The Prone Gunman), while the runner-up will get the DVD.

To enter, simply follow us on twitter (@MovieRamblings) and then tweet us the answer to the following question:

Entries must be with us by Friday, July 17.

To keep you interested, here’s a clip from The Gunman which showcases some of the film’s hard-hitting action:
