The Most Pirated Movies of 2014 List Is Full of Your Genre Faves
We know people chronically love downloading Game of Thrones, but what movies took the yarrrcake in 2014?
With security firm Excipio, Variety broke down the numbers of what people loved to watch online for free the most this year, and there are a lot of lady-led genre films on the list. We must, of course, recommend that you support female vehicles like Frozen, Gravity, and The Hunger Games whenever possible, but even I would make an exception for Divergent. Still, you’ve got some good taste, pirates (and ninjas too, calm down).
There’s a bit of hinkiness in the data – apparently Robocop‘s numbers were conflated with downloads of the original film, and Legend of Hercules‘s data includes The Rock’s Hercules (as should all things). Here’s the full list:
1. The Wolf of Wall Street (30.035 million)
2. Frozen (29.919 million)
3. RoboCop (29.879 million)
4. Gravity (29.357 million)
5. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (27.627 million)
6. Thor: The Dark World (25.749 million)
7. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (25.628 million)
8. The Legend of Hercules (25.137 million)
9. X-Men: Days of Future Past 24.380 million
10. 12 Years a Slave (23.653 million)

12. American Hustle (23.143 million)
13. 300: Rise of an Empire (23.096 million)
