Much awaited ninja film "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" was allegedly leaked on the internet within a few days of its Japan release.
The eleventh instalment of Naruto film series hit big screens of Japan on 7 August and miscreants immediately uploaded it on various torrent sites.
The full version of the movie is also available on various online forums such as Reddit and 4Chan as well as several social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter, according to Venture Capital Post.
The website also claimed that the downloads of the film's pirated version is in full swing, mainly because it can easily be availed from various torrent websites through Google search.
The pirated version of "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" is reportedly being made in theatres with a handheld camera and might create a new torrent record.
As of now, Box Office reports indicate that the online leak of Masahi Kishimoto's latest ninja film has not affected the movie's business. The film set a new collection record for the franchise by earning a total of US$ 16.8 million (2.02 million yen) within 19 days of its release, stated Anime News Network.
Meanwhile, since the pirated version is in Japanese, it can be assumed that it wouldn't affect the film's US release, which is scheduled for 10 October.
"Boruto: Naruto the Movie", the eleventh instalment of shinobi-themed manga film series, is written and directed by Masashi Kishimoto. It revolves around next generation of ninjas, including Naruto and Hinata's son Bolt aka Boruto Uzumaki, as well as Sasuke and Sakura's daughter Sarada.
