    Behind the darkest nooks and crannies of the internet lurks file traders hitting their ISPs up for precious bandwidth to nab the pre-released copies of 'The Hulk.' Labled as a workprint, (definition below):

    WORKPRINT (WP) -
    A workprint is a copy of the film that has not been finished. It can be missing scenes, music, and quality can range from excellent to very poor. Some WPs are very different from the final print (Men In Black is missing all the aliens, and has actors in their places) and others can contain extra scenes (Jay and Silent Bob) . WPs can be nice additions to the collection once a good quality final has been obtained.

    It was released officially on 6/6/2003 by a piracy group going by the acronym SMF. The release is circulating on several IRC chatrooms, a couple Peer 2 Peer applications, and amongst hundreds of private FTP servers.

    The most interesting point of this release, besides the speed at which it was released, is the fact that there are three black bars covering serial numbers that help identify the movie. It would seem that the workprint was coded as to prevent this type of thing from happening. But then we see the result clearly.

    Quite a few actually. I'm not a huge fan - but I'll waste my bandwidth on it.
