MySpace members get sneak preview of ‘Borat’

MySpace members get sneak preview of 'Borat' 1“Borat” is making nice with MySpace.

British comic Sacha Baron Cohen’s satire about an anti-semitic Kazakh reporter, one of the biggest hits at the Toronto International Film Festival, will screen exclusively for MySpace members around the world next Wednesday.

The presentation marks the international launch of the social networking site’s Black Carpet screening series, which debuted Wednesday in the United States with previews of Paramount Pictures’ Sept. 22 release “Jackass: Number Two” in Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia.

20th Century Fox, a News Corp.-owned corporate sibling of MySpace, has set a Nov. 3 U.S. release date for the film, whose full name is “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.”
