Someone is going to be in the doghouse at Sony Pictures, as theyve just made a huge faux pas by uploading an entire film onto YouTube instead of just its trailer.
The entertainment company were only supposed to reveal a snippet of their latest drama Khali The Killer, however ended up giving away the whole film – for free.
A clip titled Khali The Killer: Official Red Band Trailer emerged onto the streaming site as an 89 minute upload of the crime drama.
It featured everything from the opening titles, to the credits and managed to clock up a staggering 11,000 views.
However, it appears Sony have realised their mistake and after it being live for six hours, have taken the film down.
Since then no trailer has reappeared online and the only remaining remnant of the film is a bizarre broken link.
Some sceptics have claimed that this is a marketing ploy for the film, but others arent quite convinced.
If it was though, their plan doesnt seemed to have worked in Sonys favour as the film has already been slated by critics – with a score of 3.8 / 10 on IMDB (could they not have just rounded that up to four?)
Khali The Killer was filmed back in 2016, and was supposed to hit the big screen later this year in August.
It has reportedly already been released on DVD and Blu-ray in the Netherlands.
The synopsis for the movie reads: After deciding to retire, an East L.A. hit man decides to take one last job to help support his ailing grandmothers end of life care.
But everything falls apart, when he develops empathy for the targets of his hit, and hes forced to make the toughest decision of his life.
