Download Austin Powers For Free On Xbox Live

Microsoft is doing some things with New Line Cinema and McDonald’s, with users benefiting with a free Xbox Live Video Marketplace movie rental. Through this Thursday, June 28, you can download Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (that’s the first one, the one with all the jokes that were repeated ad nauseum in the sequels) for free as a rental (which means it expires 24 hours after you hit play, or a two weeks later if you don’t watch it at all.

If you miss downloading it this week, or you just want to download it again, you’ll get another chance to rent it for free from July 13-19. It’s a one-gigabyte standard definition download, not HD (which is a shame, but would have cost a lot more to sponsor. T-Mobile’s also got a sponsored section now, promoting the Sidekick iD, with free Gamer Pictures and a free T-Mobile Dashboard Theme. The theme looks pretty good, surprisingly, so it’s my new default.

Oh, and holy crap, Ozzy Osbourne is the Xbox Live Artist Of The Month! Damn! You can download for free the video to “I Don’t Wanna Stop”, from the new Black Rain album. I want an Ozzy theme and Gamer Pic!
