TorrentFreak recently published a list of the most pirated movies over BitTorrent of all time and apparently, what we watch in theatres is what we like to pirate off the internet. All of the most popular movies have been illegally downloaded a gazillion times.
Here's the list, which dates back to early 2006:
1. Avatar (21 million downloads) 2. The Dark Knight (19 million downloads) 3. Transformers (19 million downloads) 4. Inception (18 million downloads) 5. The Hangover (17 million downloads) 6. Star Trek (16 million downloads) 7. Kick-Ass (15 million downloads) 8. The Departed (14 million downloads) 9. The Incredible Hulk (14 million downloads) 10. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (14 million downloads)
Any surprises? Kick-Ass obviously doesn't hold a candle to the rest of the movies in terms of Blockbuster power, so there's one. The Incredible Hulk being a top 10 pirated movie surprises me since they had another Hulk that everyone pretended didn't exist. Other than that though, the formula is quite simple: sci-fi comic book gun movies starring Leonardo DiCaprio. [TorrentFreak]
