While fans have long complained about trailers spoiling movies, Sony Pictures has taken that to a new extreme: the studio uploaded an entire movie onto YouTube, labelled as a trailer.
‘Khali the Killer: Official Red Band Trailer’ was intended to offer fans just a snapshot of the crime drama Khali the Killer. However, viewers were unknowingly treated to the entire movie. With a runtime of just under and hour and a half, the upload included the full credits but was not available in HD.
What’s perhaps more incredible is that Sony took over six hours to remove upload, which clocked over 11,000 views.
