Following up to our top 10 stories of 2014, we’ve decided to throw another listicle into the mix. Yesterday, you read all about the top 10 most pirated TV shows of the year. Now, let’s take a look into the most pirated movies of the year! Wouldn’t you like to know which of your favourite movies came out on top?
“The Wolf of Wall Street” and Disney’s animated film of the year, “Frozen”, were the 2 most pirated films of 2014. Each were downloaded approximately 30 million times this year, according to Variety’s report via Excipio. By the way, despite the positive reviews, “The Wolf of Wall Street” was never shown in Malaysia. In fact, the film even went on to be nominated for several awards including 5 Oscar nominations at the 86th Academy Awards ceremony!
Watch the trailer here:
As for “Frozen”, well, that came as no surprise to us considering the fact that the animated film is currently the highest grossing animated film of all time. And that’s not all! “Frozen” was also translated and dubbed into 42 languages and dialects worldwide. Plus, who can forget the theme song that whether you like it or not, grew on you eventually? It’s no wonder that it’s one of our top stories of 2014 too.
Other big films that made the Top-10 list include “Gravity” and “Robocop,” though it’s unclear how many times the 2014 movie was downloaded versus the original 1987 version. Also, unsurprisingly, 3/10 of the top 10 most pirated movies of the year were from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Top 10 most pirated movies of 2014 as follows:
1. The Wolf of Wall Street
2. Frozen (seriously though, why don’t you want to build a snowman?)
4. Gravity (here’s what we thought of it)
5. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
6. Thor: The Dark World (did you hear that they’re turning Thor into a woman?)
7. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (meanwhile, an African-American Captain America)
8. The Legend of Hercules
9. X-Men: Days Of Future Past (find out if we liked it that much too here)
10. 12 Years A Slave
