10 Most Downloaded/Pirated Movies of 2014

There have been lots of great movies this year that screened in movie houses, but some people skipped that and just waited for them online to download. Here are the 10 most downloaded/pirated movies of 2014.


Can you already guess which movie was most pirated this year? No? Let Naomi Lapaglia show you what’s down there…at the bottom of this list!

10. “12 Years a Slave”

12 Years a Slave won the Academy Award for Best Picture this year. With 23.653 million downloads, it takes the 10th spot for this list.

9. “X-Men: Days of Future Past”

It’s all the X-Men characters from previous installations in one movie. It’s a really cool movie to watch that it has been downloaded 24.380 million times this year.

8. “The Legend of Hercules”

Downloaded 25.137 million times for 2014, this movie from Summit studios follows the story of the legendary Hercules as he fights his way back to his kingdom after being exiled.

7. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”

Marvel’s Captain America is on the list with 25.628 million downloads and comes in close to…

6. “Thor: The Dark World”

Belonging to the same team, Captain America and Thor are the only members of the Avengers in this list with the latter having 25.749 million downloads. (No love for Iron Man and Hulk?)


 




5. “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit takes the fifth spot with 27.627 million downloads. We wonder how the third and final franchise would do this coming 2015.

4. “Gravity”

Gravity

Alfonso Cuarón’s brilliant film garnered  29.357 million downloads the whole 2014 even if it was released all the way back October 4, 2013.

3. “RoboCop”

Having combined numbers from both the 1987 and 2014 versions, Robocop reached 29.879 million downloads which positions itself in the top 3.

2. “Frozen”

Frozen

This comes as no surprise. With all the kids bugging their parents to watch Frozen to sing Let it Go, it’s no wonder it made the list with 29.919 million downloads.

1. “The Wolf of Wall Street”

The drug-filled movie Wolf of Wall Street is at the top spot with 30.035 million downloads. Leo still didn’t win an Oscar for his superb acting, but at least viewers recognized it and showed love through downloads?

That’s it for this year! Any bets for 2015?

    …And the good old Hollywood shall continue in milking some money with its 4th grade screenwriters and directors (honorable mention goes to Michael Bay; I don’t know why people still watch his shit).

  9. abuzalzal says:

    Some of the movies on the list aren’t even worth pirating. Hollywood is fucking overrated. It’s them who destroyed the movie industry thanks to their so-called “talented” directors and screenwriters whose brain capacity falls in the 4th grader bracket.

    Moviegoers should be a hell lot wiser in watching movies nowadays and be careful not to fall prey from the hands of those 4th grader directors.

      so wala kang pinanood sa mga Transformers movies, armageddon, Bad Boys movies, et dahil obviously, hindi ka impressed kay Michael Bay?

  10. Yuj says:

    Don’t you think pirating those movies instead of paying to watch them in theaters is an indication that more people are a “hell lot wiser” today?

  11. Ex-Alodian Knight says:

    No Rurouni Kenshin?

    @ the high and mighty comments:
    Entertainment need not be intellectual. If you wanted brain stimulation, don’t watch a movie, pick up a book.

  13. Lir says:

    The only movie in this list I watched in theaters is #9. I didn’t enjoy it that much, but maybe the experience would be different if I have just downloaded it?

    Also, how accurate is that piracy-tracking firm? Did it count those downloaded from forums, blogs, warez sites, etc?
