Please Just Stop, Fox. Just... Stop.

So first X-Men Origins: Wolverine leaked to the internet and a billion people downloaded it, with approximately 99.99 percent of them telling everyone who would listen how horrible the movie was.

Then Twentieth Century Fox, the studio behind X-Men Origins: Wolverine, was all, "Oh, but the leaked version wasn't finished! There's way more footage that's going to be in the final cut that isn't in the leaked one, and it makes it a way, way better movie! So you're only hurting yourself if you watch this unfinished version!"

Then it turned out Fox might have been lying—and that the version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine that will open in theaters on Friday might very well be the same version that leaked to the internet.

And now, in a desperate, last-ditch effort to get people to go see X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Fox is adding "different endings" to the film, which will run after the end credits. Says Cinematical:

At an advanced screening of X-Men Origins: Wolverine last night in Los Angeles, director Gavin Hood introduced the film by announcing that they've included multiple after-the-credits endings spread across several prints of the film, meaning folks will have to visit multiple theaters in order to watch them all.

Goddamn. Fox, just... stop it. Please. Stop. At this point, swear to god, you're just encouraging people to download the fucking thing out of spite.
