    Ellen DeGeneres' copy of The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is all over piracy sites

    [​IMG]


    Marking the first time people have taken an interest in The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, a copy of Ben Stiller’s latest comedy has found its way to the Internet, bearing a watermark that identifies it as belonging to Ellen DeGeneres. As first reported by Waxy, then verified by Variety, the “Ellen DeGeneresâ€-stamped rip of the film began showing up on file-sharing sites this week, with 20th Century Fox confirming that the watermark was indeed created for a Mitty screener provided to DeGeneres ahead of Stiller’s appearance on her show. Executive producers for the show say they aren’t certain how it then ended up online, though one answer would be that, unlike The A.V. Club, they don’t have a Kyle Ryan working there, freaking out at the merest suggestion of anyone ripping a screener to their computer, even if you’re just doing it to fuck with him.


    As Waxy reminds, while a rare occurrence, it’s not unheard of for a famous person’s screener to make its way to the Internet: Howard Stern’s copy of Super 8similarly popped up in 2011, prompting him to deny and denounce it on air for fear of not getting any more free movies. It remains to be seen whether anyone at The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be forced to take the blame—though to us, it seems more likely that this is finally ironclad proof that Ellen DeGeneres has spent the past several decades fostering a public image as TV’s friendliest personality, all as a front for her international piracy ring. Go right on dancing, Ellen. Dance around the truth.

    If I had a Wolves of Wall Street screener, there would be no names on it. Hypothetically. If I did.

    There was a Gravity screener that I "heard about" that had a scroll saying, "For Mr. Plinkett of RedLetterMedia ONLY!!!" Funny, funny shit! :jj:

    Fuck, the Shed just ate my reply. But no, hypothetically, his best movie since Casino. Hypothetically, this wasn't at all reactionary anti-Wall Street, anti-Capitalist propaganda like what Stone and Cronenberg have been shitting out.

    a celebrity of ellen's caliber is so insulated from reality and perpetually handled by ~10+ people to keep her as such that it's entirely plausible that some random worker grabbed the screener off of a desk and dumped a copy for a friend that ended up putting it out there to make the rounds on the internet.

    with howard, you know he's so neurotic and mental that he doesn't have anyone outside of his longtime tightly-knit inner circle actually around him that much, not to mention he's only a giant celebrity in his own mind as opposed to ellen who actually IS a big giant celebrity... so it's much more likely that someone we know and prolly loathe, if not howard Himself, screwed the pooch with the super8 screener. therefore ellen fails in racking up as much hilarity as howard did when their screener scandals hit the news circuit.

    call a hunch that i still think howard's got the bigger asshole out of the two of 'em. for some reason i can picture ellen more often than not donning the strapon to give portia a ride, meanwhile we all know what howard's thinking about when he's sizing up a man, and for some odd reason he likes 'em "beer can thick" does he not? he must need "a real man" to get the job done these days =D

    but yeah, but in terms of "asshole" meaning a personality trait.... you're no doubt spot on with your assessment. as you keep getting higher and higher up on the totem pole of fame/celebrity/etc us peasants seem smaller and smaller as time goes on.

    At least Ellen has an audience and a reason to be sent a screener.

    Its blatantly obvious Wiggy thought nothing of it and gave the screener he got busted for to Ralph or Robin or Bababooey or his braindead wife, who in turn gave it to god knows who also thinking nothing of it. It really doesn't take much.

    Then Wiggy had the nerve go try going on the offensive with a lot of noise about being "so careful" and "too paranoid" to let anything like that happen, that "the press just makes everything up like the car he bought for a stripper." Right. The more lies and weird shit they try covering up these days the more I start to believe he probably did buy a stripper a car or just promised one in a drunken stupor and got embarrassed. Remember when there were vacation photos and he went into a frenzy and told Buchwald to get them buried at all costs. He's a lying creep.

    It would be funny if someone took a screener that lacks a watermarked name and they inserted Pelican's name and uploaded it.
