These Are All The Sony Movies That Leaked Online Amid Massive Hack

jamie foxx annie

A giant hack of Sony Pictures over the holiday from a group referring to themselves as the Guardians of Peace has resulted in a number of leaks ranging from budget and salary numbers to a total of five DVD screeners of movies online. 

Four of the films have not been released in theaters yet.

All together, the movies have been downloaded an estimated 2 million times.

An industry source told Buzzfeed it will cost Sony more to "clean up this mess than what they would lose at the box office." 

Here’s the complete list of movies leaked.

1. "Fury"

Brad Pitt’s World War II movie has already made $171 million at the box office worldwide. It cost an estimated $68 million to make.

2. "Annie"

Julianne Moore stars as a psychologist who learns she has Alzheimer’s disease. The film will also star Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, and Alec Baldwin.

Release date: March 2015

The film, starring Kat Dennings (“Two Broke Girls”) will be centered around the true story of Florida teen Renee Yohe who struggled with addiction and depression and helped inspire the non-profit organization of the same name that “presents hope and finds help” for those in similar situations. 

Total downloads as of Nov. 30: 19,946

One upcoming movie that hasn’t leaked online is arguably Sony’s biggest, controversial "The Interview" in which Seth Rogen and James Franco play journalists recruited by the CIA to assassinate Kim Jong-Un during a trip to North Korea to interview the country’s leader.

The country has made it clear it is not happy with the film, asking for a ban of the upcoming movie in a letter to the United Nations.

"To allow the production and distribution of such a film on the assassination of an incumbent head of a sovereign state should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war," wrote North Korea’s U.N. Ambassador Ja Song Nam.

NBC News reports that several U.S. law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, are looking into a possible connection between the hacking and North Korea.

When reached for comment by the BBC, a North Korean government spokesman didn’t deny involvement saying, "Wait and see."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, an ex Sony employee or current employee may be responsible.

11 Websites That Will Make You Smarter About Money

Business Man Using Laptop

Not everyone has a financial adviser, and not everyone has the time to read a personal finance book.

Luckily, there’s the internet.

We’ve made learning about money easier for you by compiling a list of some of our go-to websites for money advice.

Happy browsing.

1. Investopedia

Why we like it: Investopedia’s dictionary is great for finding easy-to-understand, comprehensive definitions of financial terms or concepts.

It also provides tutorials on everything from income taxes to becoming a landlord. The site even features study guides for nationally administered finance exams.

Best for: Looking up the definition of a QTIP Trust and figuring out if you need one.

2. Kiplinger

Why we like it: The digital component to the magazine "Kiplinger’s," the site features a broad range of topics from investing to real estate. If your eyes usually glaze over a few paragraphs into an article about money, Kiplinger is a good option because its insight often comes in the form of slideshows and quizzes.

Best for: Keeping on top of the latest investing news.

3. Wise Bread

WiseBreadWhy we like it: Wise Bread refers to itself as "personal finance and frugal living forums." If you want to learn how to save money from everyday people, this is the place to go. Wise Bread writers share both their own experiences and tips.

Best for: Advice on the everyday challenges of spending less and saving more.

4. Credit.com

Why we like it: Creating a free account with Credit.com gives you access to your credit score, which has far-reaching effects on aspects of your life such as the interest rate you pay on loans and mortgages, and even the price you pay for insurance.

Plus, the site has a regular lineup of articles examining the intricacies of credit, as well as diving into topics such as identity theft and homeownership.

Best for: Figuring out why your credit score keeps dropping.

5. LearnVest

Why we like it: Working with a LearnVest financial planner costs money, but the articles on its website are free. LearnVest offers personal stories about money and advice from financial planners, but it also has a wide range of tools: calculators, videos, checklists for major life milestones, and a budgeting tool that also comes in the form of an app. 

Best for: Reading what certified financial planners think about budgeting, spending, saving, and more.

6. NerdWallet

NerdWalletWhy we like it: NerdWallet is all about comparison. You can compare credit and debit cards, mortgages, investment accounts, and banks, to name a few.

Every year they pick the best for each category and feature that on their site as well. 

Best for: Finding the highest-yield savings account to store your money.

7. Quora

Why we like it: Quora requires you to create a free account, and you can sign up through Google, Facebook, or Twitter. The site describes itself as "the best answer to any question," so next time you’re struggling with a specific money issue, search Quora to see if anyone else has experienced the same struggle and provided a solution. You might also come across some unsolicited — but very helpful — money advice. 

Best for: Readers who already have a basic understanding of financial concepts.

8. CNN Money

Why we like it: If you’re more interested in breaking news that has to do with money, you’ll like CNN Money.

Sethi provides advice on topics like finding your dream job, making more money, and starting your own business. 

Best for: Psyching yourself up to earn more.

10. New York Times: Your Money Section

Why we like it: If you prefer reading longer pieces with more of a narrative, the New York Times Your Money section is the place to go. While the larger paper provides news and insight about changes in the financial industry and the global economy, Your Money distills this news and tackles money management for the individual.

Best for: Following the ins and outs of new financial regulations, rules, and changes.

11. Rockstar Finance

Why we like it: The creator of Rockstar Finance, "J. Money," also has his own personal finance blog, Budgets Are Sexy. He curates the best money articles from a wide web of personal finance bloggers and writers — "rockstars" — and then shares them on Rockstar Finance.
