It’s a hard-knock life for Sony Pictures.
Following a hack last week, high-quality versions of four Sony Pictures films — Annie, Fury, Still Alice and Mr. Turner — leaked online, The Verge reports, though there is no confirmation that the leak of all the films came from the same breach. The studio’s email system was also still offline at the time of the report.
The DVD-quality film leaks are believed to be rips of DVD screeners typically provided by the studio for awards consideration and other kinds of promotion. With the exception of Fury, none of the movies have been released in theaters, though DVDs of Fury are not yet for sale, either.
Sony condemned the leak without elaborating on its source.
“The theft of Sony Pictures Entertainment content is a criminal matter, and we are working closely with law enforcement to address it,” the studio said in a statement.
