AceShowbiz - With summer being the much anticipated months for the film biz, more shocking stories come into sight. The leak of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" unfinished version, "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" experiencing on-set mishap, and the chopping off of La Toya Jackson's scene from "Bruno" were some of the affairs that juiced up this year's fairly modest summer months.
Though the story came to public attention on April 1, it wasn't one of the April Fool's jokes. One month prior to the theatrical release of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", its workprint version was leaked out online and made available for download on several bittorrent sites, prompting a more than 75,000 download ever since. Preventing further illegal act on the unfinished film, 20th Century Fox was quick to issue a statement, and vowed to prosecute the source of the initial leak and any subsequent postings.
The month of May brought up another story from the "Twilight Saga". Proving to be a favorite among America's youth, "Twilight" dominated the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. After landing six nods from the-first-time-ever fans' voting method in choosing the nominees, the vampire drama sucked up the most golden popcorn collections at the June 1 ceremony. It took home best movie, best fight, best kiss, breakthrough male performance for Robert Pattinson, and best female performance for Kristen Stewart.
The highlight in June was the death of Michael Jackson and the music industry wasn't the only part of Hollywood affected by his shocking death. Sacha Baron Cohen's latest comedy "Bruno" immediately underwent a significant cut. Hours before the movie was scheduled to have its Los Angeles premiere on June 25 night, filmmakers decided to do a last-minute edit to eliminate the prank scene featuring Michael's older sister, La Toya Jackson, out of respect to the mourning family.
