MySpace and the Movies

By Julia Beizer

Time to kick someone out of your top 8.

Omnipresent social networking site MySpace is teaming up with Sony Pictures to offer a preview screening of "Superbad," the soon-to-be-released comedy about the ever-popular film topic: high-school nerds trying to get beer and get girls. Guru Jen, movie editor extraoridinaire, has heard good buzz about the flick, though none of us has seen the film. The screening is tomorrow night, and you can get in for free.

If you want to attend the preview, add myspace/blackcurtain to the list of your top MySpace friends and bring a printout of your profile to the Phoenix Theatres at Union Station. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., but MySpace reps recommend getting there early; Hundreds of people have turned out to other films in their Black Curtain Film Series, which means that bunches of people get turned away. In the past, MySpace has given out free passes for future screenings for those who are turned away and they may do that again, though why take chances?

Tantalizing press releases state that the film's stars, Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, *may* be in attendance for this screening, but they may also decide to go to Atlanta or Anaheim (the sites of two other screenings) instead, so, well, let's just say it seems unlikely. Still, a free movie is nothing to sneeze at.
