With the exception of the World War II drama Furywhich hit theaters in October, the films are slated for a December release. While it hasn’t been confirmed, it’s believed that the watermarked films were all picked up in the attack.

The studio has stated that it is looking into a lead that the attack has ties to North Korea and was carried out by hackers based out of China. Sony Pictures declined to confirm whether or not the films were stolen in the attack, but did say they were working with law enforcement in looking into the matter.

The Interview was the first of films leaked online while Fury is said to be the most popular of the films in torrent circles.
