Backlash Against Movie's Leak Online

Logic would dictate that geeks everywhere would rejoice at the thought of an early, all be it illegal, release of an unfinished version of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” on the Internet. It seems however that movie and comic book fans as well as bloggers and some members of the BitTorrent community are encouraging each other to resist temptation and see the film in theatres. The NYTimes Bits Blog points out that " commentator on Releaselog, a popular blog among the file-sharing community, wrote : “i think it’s worthy of being seen the right way in the theatre. everyone should support this movie and help it get a massive take making it look like the leak actually helped it.” A commentator on SuperHeroHype, a forum geared toward comic book fans, wrote: “The workprint did nothing but make me want to see the final completed version even more.”"

I, for one, am a big fan of watching movies the way they were intended to be viewed... in the theatre!
