Khali the Killer: Official Red Band Trailer was envisioned to offer fans just a short snap of the crime drama. Things, as you might expect, don't go as planned.

Sony Pictures Entertainment may have scored a spectacular own goal by posting one of its new movies on YouTube instead of just a trailer for the movie, the BBC is reporting.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Sony Pictures for comment.

In an absurd case of slip-up, Sony Pictures Entertainment on Wednesday uploaded the full Khali the Killer film on YouTube instead of its red-band trailer.

The film is slated for an August 31 theatrical release, according to IMDB.

"It's nearly like this is a viral marketing gimmick for a film they didn't expect to generate a lot of buzz on its own or something", one Reddit user wrote.

The low-budget film - which is about a Los Angeles-based hitman - had previously attracted little attention, despite having already been released in parts of Europe and playing at film festivals.

So we can expect a cheery comedy romp in the vein of Happy Gilmore then, obviously.

Khali the Killer clocked over 11,000 views before being taken down. But when he begins to develop empathy for his intended targets, he's confronted with a hard decision.

One reviewer said: "He's a hit-man". He's suppose to be Latino, but he doesn't speak Spanish. You can watch the trailer for Khali the Killer above. The movie "Khali the Killer" has a runtime of nearly hour and a half, and was originally released on DVD in 2017.
