Near DVD Quality of Wolverine Movie Leaked Online

Hear that? That's the sound of executives at 20th Century Fox falling all over themselves in a desperate attempt to bring the Internet to a halt. Why? Because someone, somewhere has leaked a near DVD quality copy of Fox's biggest Summer movie, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" onto the Internet a full month ahead of its May 1 release. Word from Hitfix is that the leaked copy is "a near-finished DVD quality rip, marred only by a few unfinished FX shots". Also, good luck going after Hans in Serbia or Croatia or somewhere selling the movie as a DVD out of the back of his mom's rented mule. 2

The movie won't hit theaters until May 1st, 2009 and bad news for 20th Century Fox, people can now watch the workprint on several kinds of websites out there. The bootleg is purportedly a DVD quality video of the Fox blockbuster without a timecode or studio watermark, but with several visual effects shots unfinished. At the moment, Fox Legal is no doubt sending their legal troops throughout the web trying to pull the movie down, but at this point, gentlemen, good luck. 1
