The chances are that you are not really aware of just how much time you allot for this activity. With access to movies being available to practically anyone, at any time, I have no doubt that we all spend more time watching movies than we think. While that is probably not an issue, the topic of movie piracy definitely is a big one. Especially if you are on the producing side. Understandably, those on the consumer side may have a different perspective.
This post, however, is all about taking a look at the most pirated movies of all time. Earlier this year, the guys at meoble1 published an infographic giving us the numbers on the movies that have been pirated the most. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing for the movies, that is not for me to decide.
What I find interesting, though, are the movies that made it to the list. Here are the movies that made it to the list, in decreasing order.
- The Dark Knight
- Star Trek
- Kick Ass
- The Departed
- The Incredible Hulk
- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
Here is the infographic together with the relevant figures.
I don’t know about you, but in spite of the number of downloads, it seems that the earnings of the movies didn’t suffer all that much. Another observation is that a good number of the movies in the list are the kinds of movies that you would actually want to watch on the big screen. Does that mean that people actually go to the theater, and then download movies at a later date?
I really wouldn’t know, but this infographic makes me want to watch Kick Ass again.
