Somebody is going to get in trouble. According to a report on Variety, a DVD-quality copy of The Expendables 3 has leaked online. Full-length feature movies circulating on illegal file-sharing services is not uncommon, but usually when a movie surfaces online it's either a low-quality copy or after the movie has already been released in movie theaters.
In the case of The Expendables 3, the film is not set to be released in movie theaters for three more weeks. For a copy to leak online, it means it didn't come from someone with a camcorder at an early screening, but someone who had access to a high-quality copy of the film.
In the last 24 hours, The Expendables 3 leaked movie has reportedly been downloaded over 189,000 times. As many might remember, several years back, a rough cut of X-Men Origins: Wolverine also leaked online ahead of its release date, resulting in millions of illegal downloads.
The Expendables 3 stars Jason Statham, Antonio Banderas, Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammar, Terry Crews, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Harrison Ford.
The Expendables 3 is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on August 15, 2014.
