Avatar Most Pirate-Downloaded Film Of All Time

Eight out of the Top Ten most pirate-downloaded films are in SFX territory

Lack of 3D (or plot) didn’t seem to deter those internet pirates. According to Torrent Freak’s Most Pirated Movies of All Time list, Avatar has been illegally downloaded from web sharing sites more time than any other film.

Indeed, eight out of the top 10 pirate download films ever are SF or fantasy. Here’s that list in full:

  1. Avatar (21 million downloads)
  2. The Dark Knight (19 million)
  3. Transformers (19 million)
  4. Inception (18 million)
  5. The Hangover (17 million)
  6. Star Trek (16 million)
  7. Kick-Ass (15 million)
  8. The Departed (14 million)
  9. The Incredible Hulk (14 million)
  10. Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End (14 million)

Blimey, the biggest surprise there must be The Incredible Hulk… Obviously far more popular than its box office or internet buzz would suggest. Possibly.
