The Top 10 Pirated Movies of 2013

The most downloaded movies of the first week of the New Year

In the first week of 2013 the most downloaded movie on BitTorrent was very much expected, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Next on the list is Tarantino's latest hit, Django Unchained. Both of these are new entries and they've only been in theaters for a few weeks.

Other new entries are The Impossible at number four and Zero Dark Thirty, the story of the killing of Osama bin Laden, at number seven.

One peculiar thing you may notice about this week's top 10 is that most of the movies in there are screeners, i.e. ripped from DVDs sent to critics or people in the industry.

There has been a drop in these in recent years as Hollywood has cracked down hard on the practice and now maintains a very tight control over who gets these DVDs as well as employing secret individual watermarks to reveal where the leak originated from.
