What Does the 'Wolverine' Leak Mean?

Wolverine, the big May 1 spin-off from the X-Men franchise, has leaked online a good month prior to its national release. The response is mixed, according to Entertainment Weekly, but this can’t be good news for the film’s prospects. Leaking the same week as the release?
