I'm sure you guys have heard about this all ready, as it's a few days old, but I didn't see anything on here about it.

Anyways, here is the link:

Apparently the film was sent to Rupert Murdoch's desk; the industry see's this as a big "f u".

I guess that has been proven untrue; but who really knows.

This is the most recent article I came across, where a Fox Exec says that the film wasn't finished, it was lacking a lot of key scenes and VFX work....

It's a shame that the movie was spoiled so early.

Can't there be a way to figure out who's taking the films and releasing them? I can't imagine that there are many people physically touching the WP at this stage?

Thoughts?

Funny, I actually watched this last night. I don't pay too much attention to popcorn films but I did see this listed on Watchnewfilms.com and I was a surprised cause I didn't remember Wolverine hitting the big screen yet but I figured it had already come out and died a quick death like some of the horrid Xmen sequels. It didn't occur to me that I was about to watch a work in progress.

During the film I was a little confused by the computer simulations and presence of odd looking prosthetics and wires. It actually took me a while to realize that the film was unfinished. I quickly stopped watching at that point. It got annoying after a while and the film seemed decent enough to warrant waiting for the DVD.
