X-Men Origins fittie Hugh Jackman has called the leaking of his film a month before release a “serious crime” according to the BBC.
An unfinished version of the film was downloaded an estimated 100,000 times from file-sharing websites last week and is now being investigated.
The Australian actor said it had left him “heartbroken” and amounted to a “Ferrari without a paint job”.
He said there would still be huge interest in its release later this month, despite the “upsetting” leak.
“There’s no doubt it’s very disappointing. Obviously people are seeing an unfinished film,” Jackman added.
The illegal copy of the film is being looked into by the FBI, which could result in criminal proceedings.
The rough cut did not contain CGI special effects and frequently showed green screens and wires attached to actors.
Oh the magic of the movies!
