We're having a BEANO!; 70 GOODIE BAGS TO BE WON.

Prepare to have your sides split as TV nerd Mr Bean makes his big screen debut on August 8 in Bean - the movie.

This is Mr Bean as you've never seen him before - wreaking havoc in Los Angeles.

The fun and games kick off when a wealthy benefactor - played by Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds - pays a huge sum of money to return America's greatest painting, Whistler's Mother, back home.

The Americans invite the Royal National Gallery of England to send an eminent scholar to the unveiling ceremony. But instead they send hated employee Mr Bean - played by Rowan Atkinson - in an attempt to get rid of him once and for all.

Bean's trip to Tinseltown is one disaster after another.

After defacing Whistler's Mother, he replaces the canvas with the exhibition poster - sticking it down with chewing gum. Amidst the chaos Bean makes one pal, 11-year-old Kevin Langley. Kevin thinks Bean is "pretty cool" and the pair enjoy hanging out and pulling funny faces.

To celebrate the arrival of Bean at cinemas across Britain we're bringing you a bumper Bean giveaway.

We have 70 goodie bags up for grabs with a Boyzone CD single Picture Of You - featured in the film - and a copy of the soundtrack, which includes songs by Louise, Wet Wet Wet, Alisha's Attic and Gabrielle.

And we're throwing in a Bean pencil tin, T-shirt, a Corgi Bean mini, teddy bear, scrap book and two packets of M&Ms which Mr Bean loves to munch with his chum Kevin.

To be in with a chance of winning our Megatastic Bean contest, just tell us which painting Bean destroys in the movie.

Send your answers on a postcard to: Mega Mirror, Mr Bean Comp, PO Box, 4022, London, E14 5BX.

Little Marvels

MEGA Mirror readers Ian Barnish from Church Stretton in Shropshire and Sarah Louise Danaher from Oldbury, West Midlands, scooped the chance to talk to Spiderman creator Stan Lee of Marvel Comics.

Ian: Who's your favourite creation?

Stan: Spiderman - he's the most realistic.

I: And who do you wish you had created?

S: Superman.

I: Who would make a good screen Spidey?

S: Brad Pitt.

I: What advice do you have for young comic illustrators?

S: Read all you can - not just comics - and study art.

Sarah Louise: Did you base Spiderman on anyone you know?

S: I don't know anyone who can stick to walls, but his personality is a bit like mine.

SL: Why did you make him a spider?

S: Spiders are a bit more dramatic than bumble bees.
