The Ten most Pirated Movies of 2010

Movie by Joey Paur

Avatar wasn't only the highest grossing film ever, pulling in over $2.7 billion dollars world wide, but it also topped the list of most pirated movies in 2010. I don't know why anyone would want to watch a crappy version of that film meant to be seen in 3D, but a ton of people did, and it still made an ass-load of money. 

TorrentFreak, listed the 10 most pirated movies of the year, and as you can see, sci-fi films did just as awesome on peoples computers as it did at the box office.

Avatar (16,580,000)

Kick-Ass (11,400,000)

Inception (9,720,000)

Shutter Island (9,490,000)

Iron Man 2 (8,810,000)

Clash of the Titans (8,040,000)

Green Zone (7,730,000)

Sherlock Holmes (7,160,000)

The Hurt Locker (6,850,000)

Salt (6,700,000)

Avatar ended up breaking Star Trek's record of 10,960,000 as most downloaded film in a single year.

What do you all think about these numbers? Do you think movie pirates will bring down the Hollywood box-office? It didn't really hurt Avatar, but it definitely hurt some of the other films on here like Kick-Ass
