Piracy ‘Disaster’ Strikes The Hitman’s Bodyguard

As the top grossing film for two weeks in a row, The Hitman’s Bodyguard is doing very well at the US box office. This week the makers of the action comedy are faced with a serious setback though, as a high definition copy of the film has leaked online. It’s unknown how this will impact future grosses, but movie studio Millennium Films might have to confront pirates head-on.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard is an action comedy movie featuring Hollywood stars Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds.

While this hasn’t been a great summer at the box office, the makers of the film can’t complain as they’ve taken the top spot two weeks in a row. While this is reason for a small celebration, the fun didn’t last for long.

A few days ago several high-quality copies of the film started to appear on various pirate sites. While movie leaks happen every day, it’s very unusual that it happens just a few days after the theatrical release. In several countries including Australia, China, and Germany, it hasn’t even premiered yet.
