Sony Pictures uploads whole movie to YouTube instead of trailer

The video has been taken down, though it stayed up for hours.

Mistakes happen, but when you work in the film industry, sometimes these silly mistakes can cost a studio a lot of money.

That might be the case here as someone at Sony accidentally uploaded an entire movie onto Youtube instead of just a trailer.

The movie is a direct-to-DVD movie that’s apparently getting a theatrical release nine months after hitting retail.

After this incident, Sony has removed everything related to Khali the Killer from its YouTube channel, but luckily I have a screenshot.

Right now the film is only streaming on Vudu.

If you missed it, this is what IMDb said about the movie:

“After deciding to retire, an East L.A. hit man decides to take one last job to help support his ailing grandmother’s end of life care. But everything falls apart, when he develops empathy for the targets of his hit, and he’s forced to make the toughest decision of his life.”

Even though it isn't blockbuster material, this mistake could still have cost the company a lot of revenue if enough people saw it for free rather than buying it.
