Star of ‘X Men Origins: Wolverine’, Hugh Jackman, is said to be “heartbroken” over the leaking of his new movie on the Internet. You may remember, over the weekend it was revealed that an unfinished, rough cut of the film, sans proper editing or special effects, was freely available to watch and download online.
The star flexed his guns and then claimed not to think the leak would affect ticket sales. He may be right, as even those who have seen the movie say it is so unwatchable in parts, due to only being a rough edit, that they will still need to go and watch the proper cut with CGI on the big screen.
“It’s a serious crime and there’s no doubt it’s very disappointing – I was heartbroken by it,” Hugh Jackman said Wednesday about last week’s Internet leak of a work print of his X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
“Obviously people are seeing an unfinished film. It’s like a Ferrari without a paint job.”
This is the same rough print of X Men that Roger Friedman of Fox 411 downloaded, partially reviewed and was terminated for. The FBI and the MPAA have vowed to apprehend whoever made it available online, but as of yet, have made no progress despite the identifiers inserted into the film.
