Top 10 PIRATED Movies of 2011

TorrentFreak.com has come out with their list of the Top 10 Pirated Movies of 2011. Top­ping the charts this year were the boyz of this movie:

Yup, “Fast Five” was the #1 most pirated movie of 2011. It was ille­gally down­loaded 9.8 mil­lion times. Let’s say that each movie would be $20 each if the per­son bought it instead of ille­gally down­loaded it. That would mean that the stu­dio lost $196,000,000 in rev­enue. Wow.

Here is how the rest of the Top 10 shaped up:

2. “The Hang­over Part II” — 8.8 mil­lion ille­gal down­loads
3. “Thor” — 8.3 mil­lion
4. “Source Code” — 7.9 mil­lion
5. “I Am Num­ber Four” — 7.6 mil­lion
6. “Sucker Punch” — 7.2 mil­lion
7. “127 Hours” — 6.9 mil­lion
8. “Rango” — 6.4 mil­lion
9. “The King’s Speech” — 6.2 mil­lion
10. “Harry Pot­ter and the Deathly Hal­lows Part II” — 6.0 million

Some of the big­ger movies actu­ally didn’t end up on the list, like “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “Trans­form­ers: The Dark Side of the Moon”.

What I think is inter­est­ing is that this TorrentFreak.com web­site can some­how keep track of all of these ille­gal down­loads. You would think that if they could keep track of them that they would also be able to fig­ure out the exact per­son that is doing it. I would think that the stu­dios would LOVE to know this.
