Wolverine Screener Claws Its Way Online

This is not an April Fools' joke! Though the movie won't be in theaters until May 1, a full-length, high-quality copy of X-Men Origins: Wolverine leaked online last night and is currently being traded on BitTorrent networks. According to those who've seen it, it's either a near-complete version lacking only a few special-effects shots, or an older cut missing some footage. Either way, though, it's safe to assume heads are rolling at Fox this morning — while Oscar movies leak all the time, it's generally rare for $100 million tentpoles to escape in DVD quality a full month before their release. Also, hilariously, Fox selected today of all days to have poor Hugh Jackman announce a contest giving fans a chance to "host the world premiere of Wolverine in your town." Everyone's a winner! (Except for the studio employee who misplaced his screener and will never be heard from again.)
