‘The Expendables 3’ Leaks Online 3 Weeks Ahead Of Release

'The Expendables 3' Leaks Online 3 Weeks Ahead Of Release

Get ready for the debate over piracy to once again rear its head. Back in 2009, a work print (that turned out to be not all that different than the released version) of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” leaked online almost a month ahead of its release, and whether or not it damaged the box office is still up for debate. Despite Fox claiming the pirated copy was viewed 4.5 million times (which doesn’t necessarily mean those people would’ve bought a ticket instead), the movie still opened to a massive $85 million at the box office and did pretty well overall considering how badly it was reviewed. Did it help, hurt or make no difference? Well get ready to see how this next bit of news is spun.

A high quality version of “The Expendables 3,” apparently ripped from a DVD screener, is now making the rounds of torrent sites, three weeks before the film is slated to hit theatres. And the damage from the movie being out there could be substantial. “The Expendables 2” earned over $300 million worldwide, and this sequel brings an even bigger cast, with bigger stars. Will it affect the box office? Does the average moviegoer care enough (or even know how) to torrent a movie like this?

Those questions that will surely be answered once the results come in on opening day, but be warned if you’re feeling curious about downloading the rip: Nu Image sued 23,000 BitTorrent users in 2011 for downloading “The Expendables,” and the authorities eventually caught up with the guy who uploaded ‘Wolverine’ too, so you might be better off paying for the movie at the multiplex instead of trying to save a few bucks.

“The Expendables 3” opens on August 15th. Check out the garish Comic-Con posters for the film below. [Variety]

Black punk robs a store, fights the cops and gets dead. Blacks rally around what a great guy he was and loot and steal as they "demand" justice. What a joke blacks are.

hera sina

i just found an interresting site
you can watch all box office movies here
(change dot with . and make it without space as you write site address as usual)
moviesreview dot nation2 dot com
you can see that im telling u the truth


You didn't get the memo huh? In America we don't talk honestly about race, when victims of a hate crime are white we call it "random acts of violence". If being a racist means I see a difference in people of differing races then so be it. In America the most violent crimes in order are Blacks (far ahead of the rest) followed by Latinos (who are "counted" as whites if the PERPETUATE a hate crime) then whites and then Asians. So yes I am a racist. I'm also a sexist because I know men and women are far from equal, spend a day in divorce court to see that fact.

Mel is the man

I still love Mel, I know how women can get a man earth shaking mad and I know I've said things I may have regretted (unlike the SAINTS around here) Keep making movies Mel, I'll keep buying them. F. all the rest.

your truth is bs

Stop all the "racism is passed down through generations" bull. The truth is when I look at the crime rate, when I see people walking down the street throwing trash on the ground, when I see someone fighting the police, when I hear someone acting loud and ignorant I know the truth.

When the white guy is beat down in the city by a "group of teens" I know the truth, it wasn't a so called "random act of violence" it was a group of black thugs targeting a white guy. But when whites are the victims the race of the perps is irrelevant. So fu, go read the crime stats and make some more excuses.


The movie is crap…thank God i didnt waste my money


I never, ever go to a cinema to watch any movie. Why would I pay the exorbitant, ridiculous price to sit in a room full of obnoxious, loud, disrespectful, assholes where I can't smoke, eat what I want, drink what I want, and hit pause when I want.


Expendable 3 Awesome Movie !!
A Must Watch Movie . . .

Every One Have played their role legendary . . .



Yeah "rampant bigotry" Mel, yet black people get away with far worse look at Jaimie Foxx and his racist BS. I will support Mel 100%. I know what its like to have a psycho ex get you riled up. All you hypocrites out there act like you have NEVER said anything in anger. Get real.

Why People not giving Mel a Break, been this long and doing damage by release the screener, I think everyone did something wrong in the pass, nobody is perfect, and he should deserve a break.


wanna go to piratebay? aye aye captn


Mel Gibson speaks out against Jews, all his movies go direct to DVD. Mel stars in a new major motion picture and it gets "leaked" online.

Things that make you go hmmmm.


I'll still watch it in the theatre…the big screen and big sound still brings an adrenaline rush no big-screen TV or computer can replicate…at least not yet…


Yeah but it's Expendables 3! Doesn't really matter. [It's an expendable movie]. ; )

The best part is — Lions Gate uploaded the movie to the web to create a buzz!


Manipulation at it's finest! They realize the lions share of box office will be overseas, it looks excellent..but it's in English. Creating just enough buzz to generate big openings in non-english theaters. Remember, most of these guys are retired American action movie heroes. Where are they still big? Mark my words, it does over $350,000,000 hopefully then people realize sometimes mistakes, aren't mistakes.


It was not going to make as much as the original two because it is trying to cram all these nobodies into the series. That and the fact that what people liked about the previous ones was the over the top blood and violence. Choosing to make Expendables 3 PG13 will hurt the franchise much more than a leaked screen. I have no interest in watching a wasted down Expendables movie. Even if it were free.


Yes nu image sued 23000 ppl but they didnt win the suit the judge voted it wasnt realiable because they could not trace the users

denise munson

whats a torrent movie and how do i get one?


glad I watched it, I didn't like it.

and "put a lid on things"?
So.. what do you expect to do besides get some of the streaming links shut down? then get reuploaded a few hours later?
You cannot take torrents down.


Great movie. Wayyyy better than expendables one. I loved the mel gibson part…fits him lmfao. Not saying i watched it..just a prediction (;


All you have to do is watch it on any of the streaming sites. No download required.
