Kutcher pirates peek at his film 'Killers'
Wednesday 02 June 2010
On Ashton Kutcher's famed Twitter account, the actor announced that he will "pirate" the first 13 minutes of his comedy with co-star Katherine Heigl, titled
Killers, at the premiere to post online before the film opens this weekend.
The tweet stated: "going live 2 the web & pirating the 1st 10 min of Killers from the premiere." The actor/producer confirmed this during an appearance with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
Actually, the plan is not officially piracy. It is an internet sneak preview - and smart marketing move by the movie studio - in the hopes of reaching Kutcher's phenomenal five million Twitter followers.
"Pirating" sounds more appropriate for the film, though. This new romantic action film releases this weekend in the US, co-starring Katherine Heigl ( Knocked Up, 27 Dresses) as newlyweds whose lives change dramatically when it is revealed he's a super spy.
Every hour, the actor sent an update via Twitter about attending the premiere of the movie with his "wifey" Demi Moore: TUNE IN - we are going LIVE at 7:00 p.m. PT from the #killers RED CARPET! Watch here = http://bit.ly/V4ov
