Hateful, “Revenant,” “Creed” Piracy Rampant

Good quality copies of “The Revenant,” “The Hateful Eight,” “Carol,” “Joy,” “Steve Jobs,” “Brooklyn,” “Room,” “In the Heart of the Sea,” “Legend” and “Creed” have all leaked to piracy sites after screeners were sent to voters for awards consideration according to Variety.

‘Revenant’ is proving the hottest of the batch with almost three-quarters of a million unique IP addresses having downloaded the film in the last 24 hours. Not far behind was Tarantino’s “Hateful Eight” with 569,153 IP addresses and “Creed” with 499,082.

A piracy group named Hive-CM8 is taking credit for the leaks and claim there’s plenty more to follow with one a day to come out over the next few weeks.
