Virgin Media is giving its broadband customers the opportunity to win free tickets to the new Ryan Gosling film Drive.

The picture, described as "a blood pumping thrill ride", is Virgin Media's Movies First selection for September 2011.

Each month, the broadband provider runs a free draw for subscribers, giving them the opportunity to attend a preview screening of an upcoming release.

In the 18-rated thriller Drive, Gosling – whose credits include Blue Valentine, All Good Things and Fracture – plays a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver-for-hire in the criminal underworld.

After agreeing to help the husband of his beautiful neighbour, Irene – played by British Oscar winner Carey Mulligan - he finds himself a target for some of Los Angeles' most dangerous men.

Christina Hendricks, Ron Perlman and Albert Brooks also star in a film directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

To be entered into the upcoming Movies First draw, Virgin Media customers need to register their interest between September 1st and 5th 2011.

Winning entrants will be notified by September 7th, with screenings of Drive to be held at 15 locations across the UK on Tuesday September 13th.

Cinemas in Basingstoke, Birmingham, Bristol, Bury, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Leeds, Leicester, London, Portsmouth, Reading, Swansea, Watford and York are participating in the promotion.

Virgin Media customers simply need to enter their broadband account number on the online registration page.

They will then be asked for the details of the account holder and the name of the person who will be accompanying them to the screening.

"After choosing your cinema location and the number of tickets you'd like, just hit submit and you'll be entered into the draw. Easy!" Virgin Media explained.

If consumers have only just taken out a Virgin Media broadband deal, they can apply for Movies First cinema tickets within 14 days of joining.
