World Brief

Producer-distrib Gaga will hold an online advance screening of its musical drama “Back Dancers” on Sept. 2 and 3 ahead of its Sept. 9 bow — an industry first.

One hundred fans, selected by lottery, will see the pic — about four femme dancers left in the lurch when the pop star they’re backing suddenly retires — on the Gyao Web casting site, operated by Gaga parent Usen.

Gaga also is selling a “Back Dancers — Back Stage Pass” DVD that will allow fans to access star interviews, video footage and other material on the “Back Dancers” Web site, updated daily for 12 days through Sept. 7.
