Hackers really are the bane of the entertainment industry.
No sooner has some spoilsport leaked the first four episodes on the new series of Game of Thrones, than a grainy pirated copy of the Batman V Superman trailer hit the internet.

He may have saved the world from the evil plans of General Zod, but Superman still isn’t exactly getting a hero’s welcome.
This is post-modern superhero territory, after all. Now you are just as likely to be seen as a threat than as a saviour.
The trailer opens with cries of “Alien!” and “This is our planet”, voices raised in fear and anger.
Conflicting voices argue that he is trying to help or that he is out of control and bring up the age-old quote, ‘Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.’
