Wolverine Leaks onto the Internet Sans Special Effects

As of a few hours ago 75,000 people already have a copy of Wolverine (yeah, yeah X-Men Origins: Wolverine) on their computer. An unfinished version of the film was leaked onto the internet, and most definitely will have Fox suing mad.

The film is reported to be of great quality, but without any special effects, which you can imagine is probably a pretty decent chunk of the movie. A watermark on the video indicates it may have come from special effects firm, Rising Sun Pictures, but that isn’t confirmed.

I understand the appeal of wanting to see a movie early, but I can’t get behind the idea of watching a bootlegged, special effect-less version of Wolverine when I could just wait a month to see the real thing. Then again I don’t understand why people were downloading The Dark Knight shot on a cell phone cam, so what do I know?

And no, this is not an April Fool’s joke, the torrent is here, if you really feel like watching Wolverine for its riveting dialog.

    As if I wasn’t pretty sure already that this movie was gonna suck (ya know, with the reshoots I read about and all), let me watch it on my laptop without the special effects. Then it will definitely suck, and I’ll ruin any of the fun I might have had seeing the new XMen on opening weekend.

    I’m with you. I don’t get spoiling a movie by watching it unfinished.

    It was a pretty awesome movie, especially since the CG was just polygons. The action was awesome and the acting was better than the other Xmen movies. I plan to see it theaters with good sound set up when the CG are finished (lol).

    “[...] I can’t get behind the idea of watching a bootlegged, special effect-less version of Wolverine when I could just wait a month to see the real thing.”

    Answer is simply – for example to compare workprint version with final cinematic one.

    I’m sure I’ll go to cinema to see full version but I’m curious how effectless version looks like.

    What’s more visual FX are my hobby so I’ll wait also for DVD version and then I’ll analyze CGI by frame differences between versions.

    Was I the only person who thought is was actually MORE entertaining without the CG, bad film, but without CG at least amusing! For those who’ve seen the CG-less copy, the plane scenes are my favorite.
