Sony accidentally uploads entire film to YouTube instead of the trailer

Somebody at Sony Pictures has almost definitely been fired after the entire Khali the Killer film was uploaded to YouTube instead of the trailer.

For a company at the forefront of the video world, you’d have thought the blunder would’ve been picked up on in the office.

But, apparently not.

The upload was titled ‘Khali the Killer: Official Red Band Trailer’ and fell into the subscription box of over 2.3 million subscribers who, upon clicking on it, found they’d been ‘treated’ to the whole film, rather than just the trailer.

The film managed to stay on YouTube for a full eight hours before somebody in the Sony Pictures HQ realised and took it down.

Whilst some may think this is a weird publicity stunt, it seems it really was just human error, as the film – which was released in the Netherlands and Germany back in 2017 – has received poor ratings from critics.

Not exactly the film you’d like to promote in a publicity stunt as ‘the one to watch’.

Directed by Jon Matthews, the plot follows a Los Angeles hitman who decides to fund his grandmother’s care with one final job. Spoiler: It doesn’t go to plan.
