Sony Accidentally Uploads Entire Film to YouTube Instead of Red-Band Trailer

Sony has taken down the movie now but it remained on YouTube for hours before Sony realized the mistake.

Khali the Killer is a low-budget film about a hitman in Los Angeles, which has been released in Europe and played at various film festivals without attracting much attention.

Some movie trailers can be too revealing, and then there's what Sony Pictures recently put out.

But instead of a short teaser of writer-director Jon Matthews' film, Sony uploaded the almost 90-minute-long movie.

Sony Pictures, the studio uploaded an entire film "Khali the Killer" onto YouTube, labelled as a trailer.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the production house uploaded the 89 minutes and 46 seconds movie on July 03 on its YouTube channel. For those of us who missed out, the film is also now available to rent on YouTube.

However, putting an entire movie up for free on YouTube seems like an overly risky venture for a major studio, who are likely now looking into why the incident occurred.

The movie was released on DVD a year ago. Originally spotted by CBR, the movie was uploaded to Youtube and stayed there for about eight hours before Sony finally caught on and took it down. Everything falls apart for him as he develops empathy for his targets and is forced to make the toughest decision of his life.

It stars Richard Cabral, Ryan Dorsey, Clayton Cardenas and Corina Calderon.
