    Default Top 10 Pirated Films of 2010 Revealed

    TorrentFreak has published the list of the most popular pirated movie downloads of 2010, and it's no surprise that Avatar headed the list.

    However, not all of the top 10 lined up with the actual box office top 10. For example, Toy Story 3 and Alice in Wonderland were nowhere to be found in the "torrent" top 10, but were huge at the box office (Toy Story 3 is actually the 5th most popular movie of all time, just above Alice in Wonderland in 6th). And movies such as Green Zone, Kick-Ass did poorly at the box office, but were popular with downloaders.

    Here's the complete list, and the estimated number of downloads:

    1. Avatar - 16,580,000
    2. Kick-Ass - 11,400,000
    3. Inception - 9,720,000
    4. Shutter Island - 9,490,000
    5. Iron Man 2 - 8,810,000
    6. Clash of the Titans - 8,040,000
    7. Green Zone - 7,730,000
    8. Sherlock Holmes - 7,160,000
    9. The Hurt Locker - 6,850,000
    10. Salt - 6,700,000

    Avatar made so much money that the fact that it's #1 most pirated almost PROVES that piracy doesn't hurt the film industry.

    Yes, was just posting about this in my weekly news roundup (not yet published). Avatar earned nearly three times as much as The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, the third highest earner of all time, back in 2003. Given that online movie piracy has increase ten fold or whatever since 2003 (if you believe the MPAA), then why did Avatar make so much more money than LotR?

    Or the fact that out of the top 10 movies, by worldwide box office, 6 were released after 2007, during the same period that online piracy skyrocketed according to the MPAA.

    These numbers seems to indicate that piracy is actually helping the movie business.

    Of course piracy is helping the movie business... I know people who pirate movies that are still in theaters, end up liking it, and then buying it on DVD or Blu-Ray. That's one reason I think anti-piracy movements are just stupid...
