The Year’s Most Pirated Movies Were Also Some of The Year’s Worst Movies

Folks must’ve really wanted to see Vin Diesel square off against The Rock without suffering the public shame of going to a theater—Fast Five is the year’s most pirated flick with a total of 9.3 million illegal downloads. That’s an estimated loss of about $90 million, despite grossing $200 million domestically and $400 million abroad.

The Hangover Part II, Thor, Source Code and I Am Number Four round out the top five, suggesting most downloaders were a) male, b) tech-savvy nerds, and c) indulging in their guiltiest of pleasures (well, not quite).
