Default Perfect Copy Hits Piracy Scene as 'The Hitman's Bodyguard' Runs into Piracy Trouble

A pristine, high definition copy of the Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson comedy action hit 'The Hitman's Bodyguard' has been uploaded to piracy sites, just as the movie was building up a head of steam at the box office.

Occurring only a few days after the film's theatrical release in North America, the upload, marked as a "Web-DL" release (suggesting it has been ripped from a web/streaming source), features 1080p clarity, with 5.1 channel audio, no watermarks and even includes the full English subtitles.

At first, it wasn't clear how such a perfect copy could be obtained so soon after the film's release, especially since the film has yet to open in numerous other markets including Australia and parts of Europe. But it soon became apparent that Netflix Japan had somehow managed to secure instant streaming rights to the film, and the film has been available for streaming on the platform for a short while. This makes Netflix Japan the most likely source for the pirated video, and would also explain the good quality of the rip.

The film's production company, Millennium Films, will not be pleased at this turn of events especially considering the company's tough stance against pirates in the past.

The pirated version of 'The Hitman's Bodyguard' was the most popular download on BitTorrent last week.
