Piracy plea bags Twitter fan free film tickets

cinema-300x201The war on film piracy is a tricky one. The pirates have a convincing lead, courtesy of their mastery of technology and the plodding response of big film studios.

Piracy plea bags Twitter fan free film tickets

But it’s nice to see the latter has a sense of humour.

Amanda Music (her real name, apparently), looked unsuccessfully for a Torrent of indie flick Adventureland. Frustrated, she vented to Twitter: “Ugh WHY IS ADVENTURELAND NOT ON TORRENTS YET?”.

Forget the irritating use of ALL-CAPS for a moment; this is the kind of thing that might provoke a heavy-handed response from distributor Miramax. Instead, Amanda heard from the company’s Twitter team.


Torrentfreak.com reports that Amanda said “Okay I won’t, JUST FOR YOU,”. The reply?

“@omgamandaa Thanks Amanda. In return, I have a free Fandango card for 2 tix if you’re interested in Adventureland. Just DM us for the code.”

An offer from Miramax of free tickets to see the film in question and the thought that a habitual pirate might have accidentally mugged Miramax in broad daylight.

In other news, the PC Pro team is thinking of stealing a Ferrari over lunch. Chaps?
