These are the most pirated movies of 2012


TorrentFreak has released their annual list of the most pirated movies of the year — most of the results are pretty much expected, but there are a few surprises in there as well.

Raise your hand if you were expecting Project X to top the list. Nobody? Thought so. I had completely forgotten about the movie existing before seeing the list but yet there it is, edging out some of the biggest movies of the year in The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers.


Take note that these aren’t exact numbers, as TorrentFreak derives their estimates using information from public BitTorrent trackers. However, the list remains a good glimpse into what was popular in 2012 among movie pirates.

Still, Project X? I really don’t understand.
