'Fury' and 'Annie' are among the stolen films. Company says they've been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.

 

This isn’t the kind of sneak peek Sony Pictures had in mind for its holiday blockbusters.

Computer hackers have stolen five new movies from the studio — and they’ve already been illegally downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.

Brad Pitt’s war flick “Fury†— which is still playing in movie theaters — and “Annie,†which isn’t scheduled to be released for another three weeks, were among the pirated films.

“The theft of Sony Pictures Entertainment content is a criminal matter, and we are working closely with law enforcement to address it,†a Sony spokeswoman told Variety, the show business trade magazine.

Cyber criminals attacked the studio’s computer system on Nov. 24, accessing watermarked versions of the films that were being sent to award voters.

A hacker group dubbing itself “Guardians of Peace†left behind an image of a skeleton on the company’s computers along with the message “Hacked by #GOP.†The thieves also threatened to leak “top secrets†of Sony Pictures.
