Wolverine leaked

Apr. 1, 2009by: Dave Davis

If you clicked around some of your favorite fansites this morning, you undoubtedly came across a few "news" stories that proved themselves to be the now-customary April Fools Day gags.

One particular item that was NOT a joke, however, was that an early version of next month's big-budget comic book flick X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE had found its way online to various video hosting and torrent tracking sites. Not previews or studio-sanctioned clips -- a workprint of the film in its entirety.

Fox has since issued a response: "Last night, a stolen, incomplete and early version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine was posted illegally on websites. It was without many effects and had missing scenes and temporary sound and music. We immediately contacted the appropriate legal authorities and had it removed. We forensically mark our content so we can identify sources that make it available or download it. The source of the initial leak and any subsequent postings will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law - the courts have handed down significant criminal sentences for such acts and the last person who committed such a crime is still in jail. The FBI and the MPAA also are actively investigating this crime. We are encouraged by the support of fansites condemning piracy and this illegal posting and pointing out that such theft undermines the enormous efforts of the filmmakers and actors, and above all, hurts the fans of the film."

Given the current nature of the internets, it's virtually impossible to prevent the movie's proliferation at this point -- you can't put the shit back in the goose, as my old man used to say. The finished movie hits screens on May 1st, but whether this incident will have a noticeable impact on the box office is now the question.

This type of occurrence is not unprecedented -- a workprint leak of HOSTEL 2 was partially blamed for that sequel's relatively weak tally, but similar situations didn't prove detrimental to the box office earnings of TAKEN, AMERICAN GANGSTER or the HALLOWEEN remake.

While there will always be a percentage of internetizens who actively seek pirated/bootleg/camera copies of movies, it's probably safe to say that the average consumer still prefers the theater experience, judging by the massive amounts of cash plunked down at multiplexes so far in 2009. A high-profile flick like WOLVERINE may not have much to worry about -- after all, he's resilient and full of adamantium.

Extra Tidbit: One has to wonder if this was someone's payback at Fox honcho Tom Rothman and his supposed disdain for the X-MEN franchise and/or its fanbase... but it's certainly a pisser for star (and producer) Hugh Jackman, who seems like a great dude.

flawed

as far as two face is concerned, he was reworked to fit the context of a different universe - and it worked. The most identifiable components of his character remained intact, so not only was it forgiveable, but entertaining.

Deadpool - wisecracking powerhouse, with finesse. How hard is that? If, in dark knight, they had guns grow out of his arms I'd say you have a point, but no.

i thought it wasnt terrible, the biggest issue of course is Deadpool, had they just made him some unnamed super mutant i dont think anyone would have a problem. but they really screwed up a fan favorite. other than that i thought it was pretty decent, i'm still gonna check it out in theaters to see it all put together properly with the special effects.

Now that i think about it i thought the scene with the Blob was really cheesy.

I only had two problems with the movie. My first problem was the underdeveloped Sabertooth, and my other problem was the whole "Deadpool being a super mutant thing". Other than those two gripes, I think the movie was great. It had a few flaws, but you can't hate on a movie because they messed up one character.

The movie had an ensemble cast, and out of those characters, only one of them was "done wrong". Everyone loved The Dark Knight, and Two Face only had 14 minutes of screen time. Yet

Yet nobody complained about them "messing up" Two Face. If Wolverine was a truly terrible movie, then I could understand people hating on it, but the movie wasn't terrible. The movie was actually pretty good (not great).

The studios need to simply put out better movies. As presentation gets better the actual content of the movies gets worse. With Digital Presentation, IMAX, 3D, stadium seating, it's funny that they just can't make more original movies that are worth the enormous price that it costs these days! It's all remakes, re-imagining, reboots, sequels, prequels, digital cartoons, based on whatever new books, the industry is so desperate to make a buck on a supposed guarantee, whatever happened to the art

Half of them fail to please the masses, and only a small fraction make just a bit more than their ridiculous sized budgets. Hollywood needs the 70s again.

Why?

Does hollywood feel the need to CHANGE things?!!? WTF Is so hard in making deadpool a mercenary? Thats ALL he is, he isnt a mixture of mutants, he doesnt shoot lasers out of his eyes like cyclops, he doesnt have swords out of his hands like Baraka or Wolverine, what did the person who had to think of Deadpool get lost, went to play some Mortal Kombat, fought Baraka and was like EUREKA! i got it! come on! just pick up a deadpool comic for christ sakes! the last battle just ruined it for me, i

seriously?

I'm trying to get what was so awesome here. Was it the
extensive use of flat characters? Was it the fact that the
title was XMEN ORIGINS:Wolverine, yet had barely ANYTHING to
actually do with that?(not really a complaint on my side) Or
how about the fact that they skipped over all the things in
Origins the comic to do a poorly paced story that had little
inconsistancies with itself? How about the butchery of Peter
Petrelli?.... oh wade, DEADpool. They made him Baraka? WTF.

And what business did he have being the final battle? The
creation of the supposed "main villian" Sabretooth lacked
any depth, then proceeded to have wolverine fight someone
else at the end, which, btw, becomes less badass with swords
coming out of his hand. All that stuff he did in the beginning
with the repelling bullets... ya think that could happen with
the limited movement those blades had at the end? Oh and don't
forget the great Remy, who landed his accent spot on.
(sarcasm, for those who actually believe that)

Lets not forget the biggest flaw here - the very end. The ending
of this movie made the entire journey of the main character mean
ABSOLUTELY nothing. This movie will only have value when sitting
next to its sequel on the shelf- which hopefully will be done by
a better storyteller.

Not the worst movie. Not as bad as X3, sure, but that's
not saying much. Maybe better than Xmen 1. It's hard to
place this on a scale really, though I wouldn't dare give
it anything over a 3 out of 5 - thats for someone who reads
comics from time to time. Maybe for the casual viewer a 3.5
out of 5. MAYBE.

i retract said earlier statement. i watched it and while my friend liked it i thought it was shit. DEADPOOL LOOKS LIKE FUCKING BARAKA FROM MORTAL KOMBAT!! seriously wtf fox. shooting lasers and stupid shit. so fucking lame. Gambit didnt even have a cajun accent. it was halfass. god. if Hugh Jackman is producing this why the hell would he want to stray so far from source material. Did he even pick up a deadpool comic. BALL HAS BEEN DROPPED

I watched it and giggled at the unfinished effects. It was pretty good and will wait until they have $5 movie days for it. Kinda sucked how they "handled" the Deadpool character. Would of liked it more if weapon XI have more screen time. At least we got a awesome cameo at the end. ;]

Will Hurt BO

Even though most people who downloaded, will see it in theaters, most people won't because of the way they butchered Deadpool.. Even a little bad word of mouth will hurt. Look at Watchmen, which was a great movie, but word of slong got around, and killed sales...

I liked this movie, it will be a hit. A lot of action and I concur that Ryan Reynolds portrayal of Deadpool was awesome, and I wanted to see more of that character. Liev may not have fit the Sabretooth look as good as Tyler Mane, but Liev did a hell of a job in that role. He was creepy, and downright wicked. You could see the tension and hatred between Wolverine and Sabretooth that was lacking in the first X men movie. I can't wait until this comes out on dvd so I can buy it.

It wasn't great, but it was a good and solid movie. I'd give it a 7.5 out of 10.

The movie was awesome, I watched it last night and loved it! I can't wait to see it again on the big screen. I think everyone should pay 10 bucks and support Hugh Jackman (he produced the movie).

Fuck all these people who say its shit. I watched it twice last night. It was better than I could have hoped for and thats without all the cg effects complete. Liev Schreiber was amazing as Sabertooth. Reynolds did good he just wasn't in the movie enough imo. All the acting was fine the plot was fine, my only problem was with the portrayal of Deadpool other than that, great movie and fuck the haters. They can go watch x-men 3 then come talk about a bad movie

I dont think this will hurt the films box office one bit.

Im tired of hearing about Hostel 2 being hurt by downloading. I went and saw it in theater..and hated it. So either the film sucked!

actually...

i think the best way to portray x-men isn't through the movies. there's waaaay too many characters and plot lines.

they should make an x-men tv show! you know, everything that we want Heroes to be!

thought so...

i haven't seen this yet, but i expected it to suck from the first trailer release. and the response on the leaked version confirms it.

what a waste. at this rate, this movie is gonna taaaaaaaaank at the box office unless they up the release date to NOW.

and already working on a sequel? i think fox might be screwed.

REBOOT X-MEN!!!

Ryan Reynold is awesome, he isnt used properly,and for everyone who think Blade 3 sucked because of him, they r wrong. He and Jessica Beil were the reason why many people watched the movie,Ryan rules.

Watched the beta version just now. I must say the director really fucked it up, I demand it to be redone,keep Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds, and recast everyone else. The I have seen sucked big time. Can't they find someone like Zack Snyder to do Wolverine.

This movie was gonna be bad regardless of whatever extra footage they added. Watching the workprint just confirmed it. I don't think any extra footage would have saved this movie. It was total shit from the beginning. This movie is one of the shittiest Marvel movies ever made.

Everything just sucked: script, cast, dialogue, plot, and directing.

I'm glad I watched the workprint because I didn't feel like I wasted any time or money since I was multitasking at work.

Fans shouldn't watch

Marvel needs to bring this franchise and the X-men one home so that it can be properly rebooted.

There is no TDK soundtrack in the entire movie. Everything in the soundtrack is from Transformers and the song at the beginning of the movie is called Decepticons.

Is this the end of X-men in the big screen? What do you guys think?

I heard nothing but horror tales from the set. This movie has been pegged as troubled from the beginning.

I'm almost convinced that Fox let the workprint go in order to gauge fan response. Oh well, at least we got a decent XMen film in the first sequel. It's time to get somebody else behind that franchise.

Just saw it

Well, I just saw the workprint and I've got to say that no additional scenes, fixed effects, or added music will make it any better. Like everyone said, they totally destroyed Deadpool, who could have been wonderful. They meddled more with backstory that didn't need any more meddling. And aside from a few good action scenes it just wasn't very good. I give it a C-.

The messed up Wade

They Venomized Deadpool. When are they going to get [link] This reminds me of Die Hard. Didn't Reynolds come out and say how good it was a lil while back much like Willis did on AICN for Die Hard 4? It's good, it's a fitting chapter, blah blah blah. Then they turn around and kick us in the nuts. If Faux is listening, pulling the film, fix Deadpool. Have a Faux exec call up Nolan or the Fav and ask them how to translate characters without adding stupid studio shit to make it cool. "Hey, Fav,

"Hey, Fav, loved you in Swingers....how do I not screw up a comic property?" or even Snyder, "How do you take something good and make it so-so? (and I'm not referring to the squid)" or Raimi, "How do I take something iconic and change it just enough to piss off some fans but not all of them? And how should I deal with studio execs that want to cram as much crap into a flick as possible to make money."

Shame on you for what you did to Deadpool.

Karma's a bitch, ain't it?

Sorry Hugh

I was one of those people who were convinced that this movie was going to kick ass. I'm sorry to say that it didn't. I feel like if the movie came out two or three years ago (pre-dark knight/iron man) I may have enjoyed it more.

Deadpool blew bawlz.

watched it a couple hours ago, it was okay. i was crackin up every time an unfinished special effect popped up on the screen. ill most likely still watch it in theaters just to see the finished product. the story wasn't all that and yes, the film's spin on deadpool sucked it big time.

Something has been telling me that this flick will be a C+ effort at best.

I've had that feeling since the beginning. Now, that I know more. I'm sticking to the grade.

The movie will make money, no doubt, but what they have done to DEADPOOL is going to hurt this film by word-of-mouth alone.

In the end, this will be warming my DVD shelves just like the previous X-Men films do.

I don't want to go to jail.

I love this, i downloaded it and find it interesting to see a not fully finished movie. wires everywhere, not fully rendered guns and Sabertooth. i doubt this will hurt the box office though, but what do i care i refuse to go see a movie in a theater filled with retarded douchbags. been arrested to much as is.

This movie had a nice fan base until the news broke about what they did to Deadpool. Now it seems like a lot of fans could care less, or at least have tried to pretend not to care. When this movie is released it will do fairly well, but it's not going to be a hit with the fans.

In all my years of movie watching, I have noticed a high percentage of movies that don't suck make money. Coincidently, a high percentage of movies that do suck don't make money.

I guess the success of Wolverine will depend on the writer, director and actors not sucking.

Piracy does not affect Box Office

People that download movies are people that choose not to spend money on movies, and they would make the same choice if piracy didn't exist.

The best example is "Taken", it's not a big movie, it's made over 100 millions and it was already released on DVD in Europe, Asia and Australia by the time it got a teathrical release in the US. So bootleg versions of "Taken" would've been DVD quality, because they were actually copies of an offical DVD... but still

Hell, it was online for free, and I was still totally uninterested in checking it out.

Congrats on the exciting picture, you crafty foxes.

Not gonna lie...

...I watched it. I was just too curious.

For me, at least, it made me want to see the finished product in theaters even more.
I dug it.

This would have been a more believable April Fool's joke, because it brings out some emotion. This sucks for the production's already difficult time coming to screen.
