Avatar most pirated film ever
October 17, 2011
James Cameron’s Avatar is the most pirated film of all time. Website Torrentfreak.com has compiled a list of the top 10 most downloaded movies, and Avatar came top with 21 million downloads – easily beating The Dark Knight and Transformers by two million downloads.
Given the piracy was all in 2D this somewhat undermines the argument for 3D as added security – it may stop in theatre capture, though only if there is no 2D version, but it won’t stop people wanting to see a very popular 3D film in 2D.
Other movies in the top 10 include Inception, The Hangover, Star Trek and Kick-Ass.
Torrentfreak said the list was based on statistics gathered from torrent trackers and dated back to early 2006.
