MySpace, the online networking website used by many recording artists as a marketing tool, is moving into the world of movies.
MySpace members around the world will get a special sneek preview screening of “Borat,” the new comedy from Sacha Baron Cohen, next Wednesday. The film is currently generating a lot of buzz at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The exclusive screening will mark the international launch of MySpace’s Black Carpet screening series. The series kicked off Wednesday in the United States, when the website offered previews of Paramount Pictures’ September 22 release “Jackass: Number Two” in Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia.
“Borat” is due to hit U.S. theatres on November 3 but MySpace members in 20 U.S. cities, Canada, Germany, Ireland, the U.K., and Australia will be able to see it first.
