Which movie ruined the source material
Oscar screeners drive Hollywood to white heat: Six films leaked
The same game is repeated every year: in the run-up to the Oscars, the nominated films are sent to the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences so that they can decide which films should ultimately receive the most famous award in the film world. And it is just as likely that these copies will appear on the Internet. This is a so-called DVD screener, i.e. a copy of which the source material was a DVD.
Six screeners on the net
There are currently six of these screeners on various torrent sites. These include the crime film "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", the Vietnam veteran drama "Last Flag Flying" and the indie film "Lady Bird". The scene group Hive-CM8 is responsible for the publication, which has already driven Hollywood to white heat in the past few years, for example when they leaked Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight" before the cinema release.
The group announced this year that they would not put the new "Star Wars" blockbuster "The last Jedi" online. Filmed versions are currently roaming the net.
How the pirates got the films is currently unclear. Your source should be Oscar jury members, who get to see the films in advance. As early as 2003, some of these jurors published films on the Internet and caused quite a stir in Hollywood - since then, a lot has been tried to prevent the films from reaching the Internet.
In 2014 some brand new films were also released online. They were all from Sony. The company was the target of a large-scale hacker attack that took place prior to the theatrical release of the satire "The Interview". The film pokes fun at the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. The attack created massive tensions between the United States and North Korea. (red, December 28, 2017)
