Last week we brought you the most pirated TV shows of 2016. Now the most pirated movies of the year have been unveiled.
As it turns out the most illegally downloaded movie of 2016 was Ryan Reynolds starrer Deadpool. The superhero flick already holds records for having the biggest R-rated opening ever, being the highest-grossing X-Men movie, and is the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time when unadjusted for inflation.
Superhero movies in fact took four of the five top spots, with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice coming in second, Captain America: Civil War third, and X-Men: Apocalypse in fifth place. Star Wars The Force Awakens took fourth place.
Most of the films in the list reflect last year’s highest grossing movies, including Finding Dory (9th), but the list also includes flicks that didn’t do so well at the box office, such as Warcraft (6th) and Independence Day Resurgence (7th). Suicide Squad (8th) and The Revenant (10th) also made it into the top 10.
