4 million illegal Wolverine downloads

By Robert Briel | May 11, 2009

20th Century Fox has said that an unfinished pirated version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine has been downloaded some 4 million times.

The illegal copy became available on the internet on March 30. According to the Hollywood Reporter, at last years average ticket price of $7.18, the piracy could conceivably though not likely have cost Fox $28.7 million.

The question really is: do these illegal downloads stop people from going to the cinema or are they a rather clever way of promoting the movie at the box office? Especially since this is an unfinished version of the movie. And sure enough, taking in $85 million Wolverine scored a better opening weekend than any other movie this year.

Well. I can tell you: If you like the X-men, you'll love 'Wolverine'... And that 'workprint' is very, very watchable..

The WP is watchable, ofcourse, but it is not easy on the eye. Many of the effects are unfinished and in some parts, the mis-en-scene is incomplete. I'd recommend you watch it in the cinema or wait for a complete screener to be leaked before you watch it all.

watched it in the movies this wekeend, its DEFINATELY a cinema movie
loved it, and suprisingly, the missus loved it too :)

it had a lot more emotions then action (i.e after the movie finished and we walked out of hte cinema, we weren't "oh did u see that fight scene and that action blast" but rather "wow, that fella has strugled so much" :p)

yea yea, take that with a touch, it was no drama, but hardcore action!
