‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Leaks Online

Despite the Fort Knox-level security leading up to the premiere, once “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” received wide release, the film became a prime target for pirates. And we’re not talking Maz Kanata.

TheWrap reports “The Force Awakens” has found its way onto torrent sites, but it’s certainly not alone. Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight,” which was nearly scuttled by the director early last year because of a script leak, is also there, joined by the Leonardo DiCaprio revenge thriller “The Revenant.”

Although pirated versions of “The Force Awakens” have been described as “sub-standard,” the website characterizes the copy of “The Hateful Eight” as “fairly pristine,” suggesting it doesn’t bear the watermarks or time stamps that would suggest it originated with screeners circulated during awards season.

According to TorrentFreak, which monitors torrent activity, “The Hateful Eight” had been downloaded about 220,000 times as of Sunday, five days before the Western’s limited “roadshow” release. “The Revenant,” meanwhile, had reached an “impressive” 300,000 downloads.
