‘The Hobbit,’ ‘Django Unchained’ and ‘Fast & Furious 6’ Are Most-Pirated Films of 2013

Other pics among top 10 illegal downloads include 'Iron Man 3' and 'Silver Linings Playbook'

My precious! Warner Bros.’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” was the No. 1 pirated movie of the year, with the fantasy pic racking up an estimated 8.4 million illegal downloads.

The next two most-pirated films are “Django Unchained,” logging 8.1 million illegal copies, and “Fast & Furious 6,” which was swiped 7.9 million times, according to data compiled by TorrentFreak.

Hollywood will register record box office receipts of nearly $11 billion in the U.S. this year. Top-grossing movies that are not on TorrentFreak’s top 10 list include “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” — most likely only because its Nov. 22 release date has not given pirates enough time to poach the pic in big numbers — as well as “Despicable Me 2,” “Monsters University,” “Gravity” and “Man of Steel.”

The data is compiled from various sources including download statistics reported by public BitTorrent trackers; the numbers exclude pirated copies shared on rogue online-streaming sites or cyberlockers.
