Want to help break the news? Love being one of the first to catch a new trailer? We're launching a service that is available to any and everyone for free called Spread.us, a new web app designed to help spread the news faster and farther. The service allows anyone on Facebook or Twitter to link directly to our site and automatically send out news when, for example, a new trailer or poster is revealed. You can customize the amount it will post, what categories it will specifically send from, and it ties in with your existing accounts. It's awesome and we've already been using it on our @FSnewsfeed account for sending out our daily news.
If you're interested in using Spread.us for any FirstShowing news, just visit our intro page (for Twitter). If you want to use Facebook, you sign-up through our info page here. I've been working directly with the guys behind Spread.us to make sure the service is setup to work perfectly, and it does. Right now you can choose from any of these FirstShowing categories to help spread the news from: All Movie News, Casting, The Hobbit Updates, The Dark Knight Rises Updates, Interviews, Cool Stuff, The Golden Briefcase podcast, Posters, Reviews or Trailers, including any mix of those you wish. Jump in and check it out!
When I first heard about this service, I really wanted to be able provide it to all of our readers, as everyone talks about how quick we are to post a trailer - here's your chance to be first to jump on that news as soon as we post it. I'd love to hear any additional comments or suggestions on how to improve from here, and if there are other categories you would like to post from. For now, we're just excited to give you a way to break the news right as we do, as a lot of this is stuff is exciting. Sign-up today and let us know what you think.

This sounds very cool. Doesn't really appeal to me, as a user, but I can definitely see other guys having a ball with this new feature.

It's not true at all that you post trailer as soon as they are released.
