Avatar And Kick Ass: The Two Most Pirated Films Of The Year, One Being The Highest Grossing Movie Of All Time…Hmmm That’s Saying Something

Despite being the highest grossing film of all time at $2.8 billion dollars, James Cameron’s Avatar, has also earned another title — the most pirated film of 2010. With downloading site TorrentFreak reporting that a all time high of 16,580,000 million copies of the film had been downloaded throughout the year — despite being released last year.

The torrent website said that they had never before seen so many downloads of a film over the corse of one year. In a close second came Matthew Vaughn’s super-hero flick Kick-Ass, clocking up 11.4 million downloads, which was then followed by Christopher Nolan’s heist flick Inception with a lowly 9.7 million times — its almost like an awards show! Except they’ve won for a bad reason, much like the futile Razzie awards.

So to top off the list here is the top 10 most pirated films of 2010, according to TorrentFreak:

  1. Avatar – 16,580,000 downloads
  2. Kick-Ass – 11,400,000 downloads
  3. Inception – 9,720,000 downloads
  4. Shutter Island – 9,490,000 downloads
  5. Iron Man 2 – 8,810,000 downloads
  6. Clash Of The Titans – 8,040,000 downloads
  7. Green Zone – 7,730,000 downloads
  8. Sherlock Holmes – 7,160,000 downloads
  9. The Hurt Locker – 6,850,000 downloads
  10. Salt – 6,700,000 downloads
