Published Jul 04, 2018In what was either an internship-ending mistake or the greatest marketing scheme of all time, Sony Pictures uploaded an entire film to YouTube yesterday (July 3).
The red-band trailer for upcoming action flick Khali the Killer was supposed to be unveiled on YouTube, but when viewers hit play they were granted access to the full 89-minute movie.
The film remained streaming for nearly eight hours (and 11,000 views) before Sony was able to correct the mistake and remove the complete film. The actual red-band trailer has yet to surface online from Sony.
Jon Matthews wrote and directed Khali the Killer, which stars Richard Cabral as a hitman whose final job proves tricky when he starts feeling compassion for the victims.
The movie was released on DVD and digital platforms last year, but it will be given a theatrical release on August 31 — for those who didn't already see it for free.
