An early print of X-Men Origins: Wolverine has been leaked onto the internet. Apparently it's a high quality print of the film and available through bittorrent sites as well as other websites. As you can imagine, 20th Century Fox is not happy about this and issued the following statement:

"Last night, a stolen, incomplete and early version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine was posted illegally on a website. It was without many effects, had missing and unedited 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 in the past. The FBI and the MPAA also are actively investigating this crime. We are encouraged by the support of fansites condemning 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."

Personally, I think I'm going to be hurt by forking out my money and actually watching this film on the big screen. The movie looks pretty bad and I've already heard several fanboys complaining about the way Deadpool is to be portrayed in the film. Oh well, at least I have Star Trek to look forward to the following week.
