Deadpool Was Most Illegally Downloaded Movie Of 2016
In parallel to its international success in theaters, the film 'Deadpool' starring Ryan Reynolds wins the honor for the most pirated film of the 2016.
'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' and 'Captain America: Civil War' are also among the most illegally downloaded movies of last year.
Pending the results of the Golden Globe on Sunday, where the film is nominated for Best Comedy and Best Actor in a Comedy (Ryan Reynolds), Deadpool has already landed it's first top honor.
The list was compiled by TorrentFreak.
The site suggests the films strong PR push online when promoting the film proved to be a double-edged sword.
Not surprisingly, the list of the most pirated films is very similar to that of the biggest hits of the year. ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and ‘Finding Dory’ are also among the most downloaded movies.
