'Fast Five', 'Hangover II' and 'Thor' Named the Most Pirated Movies in 2011


'Fast Five', 'Hangover II' and 'Thor' Named the Most Pirated Movies in 2011
In addition to the three films, 'Rango', 'The King's Speech' and 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II' are also included in the list of top ten most illegally downloaded movies this year.


What are the most pirated movies in 2011? "Fast Five" came out on top in the list of 2011's most-pirated movies on BitTorrent, according to data released by TorrentFreak on Friday, December 23. Illegally downloaded for 9.3 million times this year, it was followed by "The Hangover Part II" and "Thor".

The sequel of "The Hangover" landed #2 with 8.8 million downloads, while the Chris Hemsworth-starring movie ranked #3 with 7.9 million downloads. Oscar-winning film "The King's Speech" placed #9 with 6.3 million downloads, while "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" rounds up the top ten with 6 million downloads.

"127 Hours" and "Sucker Punch", which box office grosses were relatively modest, also made it into the list. Other big movies, such as "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "Transformers: Dark of the Moon", surprisingly couldn't be found in the Top 10 list.

Although "Fast Five" topped the list this year, its number of downloads was way below last year's most-pirated film, "Avatar", which was accessed illegally for more than 16 million times. The average number of downloads for the entire top 10 list is also lower than that of last year.

TorrentFreak reasoned the decrease happened because of the "increase in legal alternatives" and "alternative piracy sources" including cyberlockers and streaming sites. It further noted that the number of active BitTorrent users isn't decreasing, which could mean that the downloads may simply be spread out over more titles.
