Less than a month before the release of 'Boruto: Naruto the Movie' in the US, reports say that illegal copies of the animated film has been available online. Although the quality is far different from the original film, these may still cause a back office bomb for Viz Media.

However, reports say that even though the 'Boruto: Naruto the Movie' has leaked before its release in Japan, the movie was still a blockbuster hit among the Naruto series. Yibada reported that despite the online downloads, the official English version will still be available on theaters.

It was mentioned on Movie News Guide that a bootleg copy is available on Reddit, 4Chann, Facebook, and Twitter, and Scribd. It can also be functional on some Torrent engines. But it was not specified though whether the copy has a subtitle or none.

According to an article on Crossmap, tickets are now available on the Eleven Arts' official website. The "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" tickets are being sold online. It was also indicated that the downloaders are from other countries that does not have a cinema access to the movie.

Aside from that, Viz Media is confident that most Naruto fans will still watch the movie on theater not only to assess the movie but also to endeavour watching it with co-Naruto fans. This may be an amazing experience for many just like the last Naruto movie.

"Boruto: Naruto the Movie" is the outgrowth of "The Last: Naruto the Movie" wherein Masashi Kishimoto featured the family life of Naruto, the movie focused on his son.

Although fans are aware that the film focuses on Boruto, Uzumaki Naruto and Hyuga Hinata's son, the movie details were limited proceeding to the Japan release. However, now that unauthorized online copies have already emerged, spoilers also flared up.

The unsurpassable demand for the anime movie has led to the franchise to earn $16.8 million (2.02 billion yen) being the top-grossing "Naruto" movie in history. But, will it beat the record when the English version hits the US on October 7, 2015?
