Oscar season has once again brought a deluge of leaked Academy Awards “for consideration” screeners to torrent sites, with DVD-sourced releases of Lady Bird, The Disaster Artist, The Florida Project, I, Tonya, Last Flag Flying, Call Me By Your Name and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri all popping up on pirate sites this week.
EDIT: You can know add screeners for Pixar’s Coco and Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel to that list.
Ripping group Hive-CM8 is responsible for uploading the titles, taken from DVD’s sent to Academy Awards voters for their voting consideration. The same group was also responsible for the early leak of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight in 2015, before it even hit theatres.
According to posts on the Reddit piracy board, Hive-CM8 also have a screener copy of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on-hand, which they do not plan on releasing.
Many of these leaked titles also made our top 10 films of 2017 list — you can view the entire list here.
