    Sounds to me like a publicity stunt by Warner Bros. to get more people into the theatre. How the heck does only a portion of the movie get leaked?

    Don't you just love being threatened by companies who, themselves, commit questionable acts every single day they're open for business? Warner Bros., to you I say kiss my a**. If I decide to download the clip, I'll love for you to try to sic your lawyers on me. I love men in suits, and I'll have a gay ol' time with them when we meet, to be sure. 😉
