As we all may expect, downloading movies and TV shows illegally is growing, which is bad news for the entertainment industry in general, but it’s always interesting to see which movies are being torrented the most. Usually, they are the one’s that make the most money at the box-office, and this year is no different.
The website Torrentfreak is reporting that Deadpool, the superhero spin-off that was released last February, was the most downloaded illegally, and one of the most successful films of the year. That was followed by two other superhero films in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
While those three were successful, two other films that made the list, Warcraft and Independence Day: Resurgence, were considered to be two of the biggest flops of the year, which goes to show that stealing movies online does affect the industry in a big way.
Here’s the list in full.
