20th Century Fox is having a bad week. Like, a really bad week. Yesterday, a work print of the upcoming movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine leaked online and consequently, made its way around the world. A work print is a copy of the movie straight from the studio, but it may be missing effects, post-production audio, etc.
And such was the case. I got a copy of the movie yesterday and a few of us all watched it. It was not only a terribly incomplete movie, with Hugh Jackman still hanging from ropes in some scenes and 3-D wireframes all over the place, the plot was just awful. I’m glad I had a newspaper to read whilst my roommates continued watching.
Either way, Fox is pissed, the FBI has been called in and rumor has it Rising Sun Pictures, an Australian visual FX company, leaked the damn print. To piracy and beyond!
