Hi everyone,

So I made a Prime account specifically for people who missed out on the theater showing and wanted to see it before the DVD release. Now I have never done something like this before so I am not sure how well it is going to work,but I figured we could give it a shot.

Just a heads up as well, the account has a fake address on it and the credit card is a temporary one with a $1 spending limit. I did this in order not to have my real information out there and so people couldn't go buying a bunch of things haha. I trust you guys completely but you never know! That being said, I am in the US and not sure how or if this will work in other regions. Let's hope it does. At the time of this post, it is just after 3 PM on the East Coast, so the film won't be available for another 9ish hours. Also if it asks you for a verification code, please send to SMS. If this is the case, we will have to go in a certain order in order for people to get access. Also, it may lock up after a certain amount of people log in. And I am not sure how multiple viewers at the same time will work out.

All in all this may not work but I figured we could at least try. In order to avoid having the info available for anyone to see, send me a PM and I will give you the info. I am testing this out now with a few people, so give me some time to get back to you. As I said, the account won't unlock the film for another 9 hours or so. Thanks!

I have an Amazon Prime account for myself, but I just want to say that it's very nice of you to share this with others who don't have acces to Prime. Thanks!

So it looks like it's giving people trouble who are outside of the US. Anybody have experience with a VPN who is outside of the US that would be willing to try and get it to work? I can't test it because I'm in the US.

tiny word of warning if you have Avast on your computer too, watch out with this because the combination of those two programmes nearly killed my laptop years ago. to be fair it was like 6 years ago so they may have sorted it out by now haha (and the vpn worked if I remember correctly)

also, that's so nice of you, @coldplaykb!

hosting and posting the link at MM like we do with bsides and whatnot would be easier, but if its not allowed, we can do the PM route for sure.

Apparently there's an option to download it, or someone could screen capture (not sure if that would work) then upload to a download site like mediafire

I had no idea you could download things from Prime. That makes this Wayyyy easier. I'll download tomorrow while I'm at work and will put it on Google Drive!

So if someone else from the US wants to try downloading it let me know and I'll PM you. If not I will be downloading it tomorrow at work and will upload to Google Drive. Should be in about 10 hours or so from now.

That would be great. I went to the cinema in Switzerland on Wednesday night with loads of other people and when they tried to show the film they said it was not available. So everyone just went home without having seen it. Unbelievable and quite frustrating.

Hi, any chance you could upload it to Mega ? I have a very unstable and slow internet connection at the hospital, it frequently breaks off - Mega remembers the download status and resumes when the internet us back on, so it might work for me
