Torrent Freak recently released the data for the top 10 pirated films as gauged by Bit Torrent, and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey topped this year's list with at least 8.4 million downloads. The number in all likelihood is higher due to most torrent users enabling some kind of anti tracking software for their torrenting. The full list can be found below which, as you can see, shows a bias to films that came out earlier in the year as opposed to later. Missing from the list this year despite their high box office numbers are The Hunger Games and Man of Steel, while the flop Gangster Squad made number 7 with 7.2 million downloads.
