Someone at Sony Uploaded an Entire Film to YouTube Instead of Just the Trailer
There was an unintentionally free showing of 'Khali the Killer' yesterday
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.
