Expendables 3 Leaks Online; Hundred of Thousands Have Downloaded Already

/ 2 years ago


The Expendables 3 has leaked ahead of its August 15 debut, with a copy of near-DVD quality finding its way onto piracy websites, torrents and other download sources. Within the first 12 hours of the movie making its way online, news had spread fast and over 100,000 copies of the film had been downloaded.

“LETS GO DOWNLOAD THE MOVIE!” I hear you cry, but I wouldn’t be so fast, as Nu Image wasted no time in tracking down and suing those who downloaded the original movie. Although I’m sure most of you are at least wary of the legal risks of movie downloading anyway.

Movies leak all the time, but this one stands out from the crowd by a large margin. Not only is this pegged to be the ultimate summer blockbuster, featuring almost every famous action movie star and a few other tough celebrities in the one film (Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Ronda Rousey and more), but it’s the fact that it leaked so early and in such high quality. Normally you’ll find a movie leaks with shaky cam footage from some murky cinema.

What is unclear at this time is how this happened. I certainly wouldn’t like to be the guy who has to explain to Lionsgate, and I wouldn’t like to be the source of the leak, because it’s pretty likely that they’ll be traced.

Thank you TorrentFreak for providing us with this information.

    This isnt going to stop it from making billions in the theaters when it comes out next month, it may even work and bring more people to the movie cant beat the big screen, popcorn and a big ass soda

    they shouldnt see this as a lost see it more as a way to promote the movie. The Box Office will speak wonders next month.

    This isn’t gonna hurt it in the theater. People who DL movies don’t go to the theater, usually due to not being able to afford it. The people who go to the theater will still go.

      This is such an idiotic comment.
      People who DL movies don’t get to the theater because they can’t afford it?

      I DL movies all the time, and i can definitely afford it.
      Everyone that i know that actually downloads movies can also afford it.

      I’ll download a movie, but still also go see it with other friends later at the movies or end up buying it on Dvd or blu-ray if i enjoyed it enough to add to my collection.

      Don’t make idiotic assumptions please.

        ” Don’t make idiotic assumptions please.” Like yourself Jawsh? Seriously, just because YOU can afford the $30/person movie experience, I know of NOBODY personally who d/l movies who can legitimately afford to pay. The same goes for PC games. True, some people are just inconsiderate cheapskates, but to call out someone who makes a valid statement makes you look like an ass. Have empathy before you post eh?
