It seems Quentin Tarantino can't escape leaks of his film, The Hateful Eight. Back when he was still in the early stages the script was leaked to the public, and the angry director shelved the film as a response. All of that was obviously cleared up some time later, but now as the film prepares to open its 70mm road show cut this holiday season it has been leaked early.
The Hateful Eight and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's The Revenant saw high-quality versions released online. According to tracking site TorrentFreak, the films were pirated by by a group known as Hive-CM8 and they are quoted as saying there are many more key features set to be leaked, as they have already done with Steve Jobs and Joy.
This seems to happen every year. Some foolish person in the media leaves their screener sitting on a park bench or something, and before you know it their are copies all over the Internet. It's not clear how it happened this time, but here's hoping they ban whoever the source was. Unless it's me. I'm reasonably sure all of my screeners are here... [Deadline]
