X-Men Origins: Wolverine Workprint Leaked

x-men-origins-wolverine-leaked-header

The X-Men Origins: Wolverine Workprint Leak is potentially disastrous news for 20th Century Fox. Bootleg and Workprint leaks have happened to many films in the past, most notably Hulk and Hostel II and now it has happened to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. First the X-Men Origins: Wolverine Comic-Con trailer leaked and now this unfortunate turn of events. Maybe it is a case of bad karma for the Watchmen lawsuit and dipping their toe into that “supposed” pot of gold. Whatever the cosmetic circumstances may be, one thing is for sure: the box office for X-Men Origins: Wolverine will take a hit because of this. What is your opinion of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine workprint situation? Are you the type of person that will seek out the X-Men Origins: Wolverine workprint on bittorrent sites and watch it? Does all this talk about Wolverine make you want to play Marvel vs. Capcom again?

(Update: The Workprint is supposedly missing 14 minutes of footage, most-likely from the re-shoots, effects are unfinished and you can see wires during certain action scenes.)

  • I’m sure this will hurt the movie in the long run since most of the people will prefer to watch the ultra-hyped movie now rather than wait for it’s launch one month from now. It still remains to see if those who will watch this workprint copy – an unpolished version of the movie, in the end – will want to get the full experience, too. I guess it’s safer to say that only time will tell in such a case. Still, it’s clearly a blow for the studio.

  • You can say that again. Many people are gobbling the workprint up already and commenting on it. Fox should have had better security on their film.

    Oh dear how did this happen?as a fan of the Xmen movies, i’m now divided, my dark side tempting me to go watch it now, saying one month is too long a wait…Then again it’s not complete yet, what if it turns out to be quite dull without the Sp fX???Well I can always see it in the theatres once it’s properly released… But it won’t be as much fun tho.Hmm wat shud I do?GRRRRR. Hope the producers speed up things and make sure the movie is 100% complete earlier than expected. I guess I cud easily hold on for 2 weeks.

  • How did it happen? Fox was not watching the cookie jar.

    People that can’t wait will surely watch the workprint.

    I don’t think Fox can move up the release date.

    I bet so many people will watch and regret wishing they had waited the 4 more weeks… what r u 12??? 4 weeks is nothing, there are 52 in a year and think how many u r alive for. Seen enough movies that I can wait a lil longer coz I know Finished on the Big screen is waaaay better than unfinished in my lounge or in front of computer.

    It’s so freakin awesome.
    I will watch the movie in the theater as well. There’s nothing like watching a huge movie like this in a theater full of fans 🙂

    I have no desire to see a work print, I think most would be better off just waiting for the film…

    If you watch this now, the overall excitement/letdown of the film will be lost…

    “Cough,,!!” had to be leaked somewhere along the dubbing process. That’s my theory. 🙂

    Having seen the workprint, unless that 14 minutes changes much of the story (unlikely) this movie was going to do terrible anyway. Now people just have more warning about it. They fucking ruined deadpool, and had a terribly cliche revenge story (least convincing relationship since ‘The Room.’)
