I’m saying this with pure honesty. I think Quentin Tarantino would straight up ruin someones life in a fist fight. I see him going straight for the eyes. Not a person you want to pick a fight with. He seems like someone who has a giant rage monster inside waiting to be unleashed.
So for more reasons than one I’m really glad I’m not Point Break Producer and Co-CEO of Alcon Entertainment Andrew Kosove. One because he clearly has terrible taste in remakes. Two because the FBI just tracked a leaked, pirated copy of The Hateful Eight to his office.
Every year around this time many Oscar contender films are leaked to streaming websites. Oscar screeners are sent out for other’s consideration and almost always someone decides to go all Hollywood Robin Hood and leak them to the masses. This past week another crop came out including The Revenant and The Hateful Eight.
Well according to THR, the leaked copy of The Hateful Eight was watermarked and that copy led them straight to Kosove’s Alcon Entertainment office. I’m just going to put this out there as well – Their movies both have the same release date this upcoming week. That doesn’t necessarily implicate Kosove however. He says it is definitely not so:
It’s never touched my hands. We’re going to do more than cooperate with the FBI. We’re going to conduct our own investigation to find out what happened.
Apparently it was signed for by an Office Assistant and the FBI will be showing up at Alcorn to determine the chain of custody of the DVD. I picture whoever did this right about now freaking out Bill Paxton Aliens style pacing their office screaming “Game Over, Man! GAME OVER!”. Not to mention Quentin Tarantino is probably Kylo Ren style effing up some furniture at his place right now. (He probably doesn’t have a space station to trash but you get the idea)
The Hateful Eight comes out on 100 screens this Christmas week! How do you guys feel about pirated movies? Is it wrong or do you just like to watch? As always, check back in to GeekNation for more updates!
