Federal investigators have linked the leaked screener of Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” to Alcon Entertainment co-ceo and “Point Break” remake producer Andrew Kosove — who asserts he never saw the screener.
“The screener copy of ‘The Hateful Eight’ that was sent to me at Alcon Entertainment never touched my hands nor was I aware that it had been delivered,” Kosove said in a statement. “In addition to cooperating with the FBI, we are going to conduct our own investigation to find out what happened. Piracy is a threat to our entire industry and as filmmakers we will not tolerate such illegal and despicable behavior.”
Multiple reports Monday said that the Weinstein Company’s “The Hateful Eight” and Fox’s “The Revenant,” as well as other Oscar-contending movies, were leaked to piracy sites after screeners were sent to voters for awards consideration. Both films are slated for a Christmas Day release. »

And you thought your love life was lacking. While you try to snag coffee dates on Tinder, 63-year-old Malcolm Brenner is telling the story of his year-long 1971 romance with a dolphin in the documentary short Dolphin Lover. Yes, it’s real.
Directed by Kareem Tabusch and Joey Daoud, the short film premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival last month. It chronicles the story of Brenner, then a Florida college student, and his relationship with Dolly the dolphin. This is no Dolphin Tale — stuff gets graphic. Brenner claims Dolly came onto him. “She announced her intentions to me by positioning herself so I was rubbing against her,” he told the Mirror UK. “I started rubbing her along her back, working my way to her flukes – her tail.
