Would you watch it?

Someone stole an "incomplete and early version" of the next installment in the blockbuster "X-Men" movie series and posted it on the Internet this week, according to the studio that owns the billion-dollar film franchise. The FBI is now looking into the matter. Apparently the downloads are free. So I don't see what the profit is in leaking the movie. What is the point? http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2009/04/wolverine-pirac.html?cnn=yes

It's unfinished version without CGI animation. I had a chance to watch it but I didn't because I know it would ruin a movie for me. Maybe I'll watch it after I see the final movie because it may be interesting/funny to see early version without animation.

I would not want to watch an "incomplete and early version" of a movie that I really want to see. I would be waiting for the complete version to come out in theaters. Scenes get deleted all the time and if you watch the incomplete version you will be watching something that may or may not happen in the actual movie. That aside from the fact that it is just morally wrong.

I wouldn't want to see an "incomplete and early version" of the movie. It just takes away the whole movie. I would rather wait until the movie comes out in theaters.

My brother ansd I came across a clip the other night and I would like to wait for the original. Not to give anything away but there was a scene where you could see the 3D animation they used in place of a real actor. That was crazy.

Heck no! I am waiting to see it on 20 feet of digital projection in all of its special FX glory. Why would you want to watch an incomplete version of a movie like Wolverine on your freaking computer screen??? Doesn't sound like a whole heck of a lot of fun to me. Not to mention, why would you steal something like that and risk posting it online if you're not going to charge people to download it. If you're going to prison anyway, might as well make some money off of your crime. Ironically, as I was finishing that paragraph, the trailer for the movie came on my TV.

Oh no...Well I hope they know that it will be alot different when it is completed and edited and so it will still be worth going to see at the movies. The person whoever it is when they find them will be in alot of trouble..wouldn't want to be in their shoes..

I have downloaded the Smartmovie version of Xmen: Origins a few hours ago. It's a "workprint" version so i really don't know if that is the finality of the film. I would still watch it on the big screen though. I don't think any amount of piracy can stop this film from becoming a hit as many would prefer to watch it in movie theatres or buy the original DVD as part of their movie collection.

I saw an article about this. I didn't know that it was an incomplete and early version. The video is "leaked" by people who use file sharing networks. They want to see a movie and don't want to pay for it. Sooner or later, they feel like they have to post something back. Cameras in movie theaters are used, sometimes. At other times, pre-screening DVDs have been copied. It is, however, a dangerous game. As the industry tech can make a pre-screeding DVD's video traceable and this narrows down the field of who had access to that version. Consider... What if we have a scene in the DVD which is one minute long. I could edit into a pre-screening DVD a few more seconds or a few less. I could splice in part of a deleted scene to one copy or make other changes so small that they would be unrecognizable. Then, when the video was leaked to the internet, I would be able to identify to whom the disk was given which was eventually leaked. I'm fully sure the techno-wizards in the movie houses have even more devious and clever ways to trace things.

Good day... To each his own I guess. I mean like me I would watch it out of curiosity but I will also watch it in the big screen. I am a book as well as a movie buff so I would watch anything that would catch my attention and obviously this certainly does. Though I don't condone this action.

No I would not watch it. No matter how you look at it it is not right. Profit is being taken away from the companies that have made the movie. I also don't copy downloads of movies that are not supposed to be downloaded. This is the way my Mom and Dad raised me and I have always followed the way they taught us.
