A major blunder happened on July 3 when Sony Pictures accidentally uploaded an entire film 'Khali the Killer' on YouTube instead of the red-band trailer. Netizens are already loaded with complains about the trailers spoiling the whole film for them that Sony Pictures took it to a new level. They shared the whole movie labeling it as the trailer.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the production house uploaded the 89 minutes and 46 seconds movie on July 03 on its YouTube channel. The goof-up was first spotted by entertainment news website CBR.com.
The movie was live for eight hours before it was taken down from YouTube. In those eight hours it did invite some attention from YouTube users, but in the midst of all this, the film got an exposure of a different kind. It garnered over 11,000 views before they took the crime drama down.
In case you are thinking that you missed this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, we have news for you too. The film is currently available on rent for digital purchase. Interestingly, it is available on a rental basis on YouTube itself. However, the movie has not earned good reviews and stands with 3.8/10 rating on IMBD.
The movie is written and directed by Jon Matthews. It stars Richard Cabral who plays the lead role of a hitman whose final job goes sideways when he happens to develop empathy towards the intended victims.
In November last year, the production house had launched the film on DVD.
