‘Avatar’ tops ‘most-pirated films of 2010′ listDecember 22nd, 2010 - 1:37 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Dec 22 (ANI): James Cameron’s 3D sci-fi epic ‘Avatar’ was the most pirated movie of 2010.
‘Avatar’, which became the highest-grossing film of all time in 2010, was illegally downloaded from BitTorrent websites 16,580,000 times, according to the blog TorrentFreak.
That figure represents a 33 per cent increase in downloads from last year’s most pirated film, Star Trek, which had just under 11 million downloads, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The superhero satire ‘Kick Ass’ came second on the list with 11,400,000 downloads, despite making just 48 million dollars at the box office compared to Avatar’s 2.8 billion dollars.
‘Inception’, ‘Shutter Island’ and ‘Iron Man 2′ rounded off the top five. (ANI)
