Avatar tops list of most pirated movie of 2010...check out who else is on
We all know that “Avatar” became the highest-grossing film of all time in 2010. Pero that's not the only thing Avatar is #1 on- The Hollywood Reporter revealed Tuesday that it was also the most pirated movie of the year.
“Avatar” was illegally downloaded from BitTorrent websites 16,580,000 times in 2010, according to the blog TorrentFreak. That figure represents a 33 percent increase in downloads from last year’s most pirated film, “Star Trek,” which had just under 11 million downloads.
The superhero satire “Kick Ass” came in at No. 2 on the most-pirated list with 11,400,000 downloads, despite making just $48 million at the box office compared to “Avatar’s” $2.8 billion.
The top five was rounded out by “Inception,” “Shutter Island” and “Iron Man 2.”
