MAN FINALLY ARRESTED FOR LETTING PEOPLE SEE X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

If you’re one of the people who watched the Wolverine solo movie on the web before it premiered, you can relax – the FBI’s arrested the guy that hurt you.

Yep, the FBI arrested Gilberto Sanchez in his Bronx home Wednesday for uploading X-Men Origins: Wolverine to Megaupload.com a month before it hit theaters. No one knows how he got the film so early, but apparently 15 million people downloaded it. Variety estimates that if only half of those people didn’t see that movie because of downloading it, the film lost $50 million in revenues. (Its made $373 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.)

And sure, that’s a lot of money, but if 15 million people saw it that wouldn’t have seen it otherwise, then how can you calculate the suffering that man’s caused? That’s 22.5 million hours of nonsensical, mutant-dogpile madness unleashed on the world!
