The FBI are investigating the online leak of an almost finished copy of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a month before the film’s cinema release.
The Hugh Jackman film was downloaded an estimated several 100,000 times from file sharing websites on Tuesday.
20th Century Fox confirmed the copy had now been removed and the FBI informed.
The studio behind Wolverine stated: “The source of the initial leak and any subsequent postings will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
“The courts have handed down significant criminal sentences for such acts” the studio noted.
