Sony’s Holiday Box Office Sales at Risk After ‘Fury’ Leak

Updated on

Sony Corp. will see its holiday box-office sales blunted after Brad Pitt’s “Fury” and the unreleased “Annie” were stolen by hackers and leaked online.

The World War II drama “Fury” was downloaded 500,000 times since the Nov. 25 cyber attack on Sony’s film-and-TV studio, according to the news site TorrentFreak. The leaks, which include the upcoming “Still Alice,” and “Mr. Turner,” will draw viewers from a unit that has been one of Sony’s most reliable profit-makers, with gross ticket revenue up 13 percent this year, according to Box Office Mojo.
