Some people say that the trailers are better than the movies, well what about when the trailer is the movie? The movie was live for nearly 8 hours before it was removed.

Sony Pictures accidentally uploaded an entire film Khali the Killer on YouTube instead of its red-band trailer.

The film stars Richard Cabral as a contract killer that's hired for one final job, but instead develops feelings for the person he's hired to kill.

Khali The Killer was filmed back in 2016, and was supposed to hit the big screen later this year in August. According to CBR.com, the movie was live on Sony's YouTube channel for around eight hours on July 3 before being removed.

There is no word on how the crew member went overboard , but that person is in stable condition, officials said. The Coast Guard Air Station Miami sent a HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane to help conduct the search.

Members of the public also made fun of the find via social media. "Another trailer that spoils the whole film", lamented a Redditor. The movie, which has already been released in parts of Europe, has received very little attention. "This seems like an intentional marketing stunt", wrote a fellow skeptic.

To add to the goof-up, they didn't even realise their mistake until six hours had gone by. "Presumably, someone would have asked why it's taking so long".

The video that was uploaded in place of the trailer was an hour and a half long because it was actually the full movie.

On the other hand this fan said: "Overall, a great cast and the talented directing demonstrated by Jon Matthews in Khali the Killer makes it a must-see movie".
