PostSubject: Unfinished X-Men Movie a Hit On BitTorrent   Thu Apr 02, 2009 7:10 am

April 1st. What fun. Everywhere you look torrent sites and release sites are being shut down, that’s if they aren’t teaming up with the movie studios. But what if there’s some really serious news to report? What if one of the summer’s biggest sci-fi movies leaked out onto the Internet way before its release, and before it was even completed? Still unconvinced?

This is the reality today with Fox’s ‘upcoming’ X-Men Origins: Wolverine and it’s spreading with determination on BitTorrent. At the time of writing there are at least three different ‘workprint’ versions, presumably from the same source. One is reported to be a few minutes longer than the others but all are missing special effects. The film, penned for a May 1 2009 release, was due to compete alongside the likes of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Star Trek in this year’s summer blockbuster campaigns but has ‘premiered’ a little earlier than planned.

Since the movie hit BitTorrent just a few hours ago it has been downloaded at least 75,000 times, a rate comparable to that of the DVDrip ‘release’ of The Dark Knight. Interest is likely to be significant. X-Men’s target audience are tech-savvy people who are likely to have heard about BitTorrent. Multiply this by the desire to see something unusual and something you’re not supposed to have (like an unfinished Hollywood sci-fi movie) and things got hot - quickly.

The leak is the source of much speculation, but one particularly interesting discussion surrounds the source of the leak of this ‘workprint’ copy. Many early ‘reviewers’ of the movie noted that not only was the video and audio of a high quality (screenshots), but there were no ‘watermarks’. This is not strictly true. A little way into the movie from the top of the screen pops a very brief message which names Rising Sun Pictures and a date, 2nd March 2009.

Founded in 1995, Rising Sun Pictures (RSP) is an Australian visual effects company which has previously worked on the Harry Potter, Superman and Batman movies, so they have quite a pedigree. Of course RSP would absolutely not endorse any leak and the leak could have happened before the print even reached them, but somehow a print marked with their company name has made it onto the Internet and the downloads are mounting quickly.

Another interesting development is that Devin Faraci over at Chud.com said that he’d been told that the Wolverine DVD had been “switching hands” over the last couple of weeks.

Update: Fox has released a statement confirming the leak. The FBI and MPAA are investigating the case.

Nice...

When I saw those rips I thought it will be april fool prank as the movie will be releasing after a month only..

jst some days ago only MPAA released fake Ice Age 3 dvdrip in public trackers. That torrent was a tracer torrent which means if you connect to download it for as little as probly 10 mins the MPAA will have your ip and details so they will come and bust you.

I thought Wolverine rip was also tracker torrent setup by MPAA..

Among the different releases, I think DEVISE is better. It is only 2CD rip and quality is better.

As long the file is a scene release, you really dont have to worry about the file quality and such type of cheap tricks from MPAA. DEVISE is good but I like Diamond group better. They really come up with some good stuff.

I was talking about Wolverin WP rip.. Diamond didn't release that.. These days Diamond releasing 1 CD rips that will have lower dimension and quality..

I am not fond of dvd rips.. I download mostly BDRip/BRRip that too from D-Z0N3 or PRoDJi..

Sorry my mistake, I thought you were talking about the release groups in general.

Love PRoDJi releases. Their video quality is too good .
