Pirates have given…Maximum Effort! The list of 2016’s most pirated movies was released and it should be no surprise, everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth topped all. TorrentFreak released the list, and Deadpool “beat” competitors like BvS: Dawn of Justice, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Finding Dory on a list that no one wants to be at the top of.
Most pirated films of 2016:
2. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
3. Captain America: Civil War
4. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
5. X-Men: Apocalypse
7. Independence Day: Resurgence
8. Suicide Squad
9. Finding Dory
10. The Revenant
While we would never condone pirating films, I do think it’s pretty cool to see such a huge amount of “geek/nerd” based films on the list. It really speaks to the volume of how our culture has shifted into the mainstream over the last few years.
Deadpool 2 slated to release on January 12th, 2018 so it looks like our favorite Merc won’t be in the running for this list next year, but 2018 is still a possibility! I could definitely see it happening if some recent rumors end up being true.
What do you guys think of the list? Did you guys see Deadpool? How many films on this list did you go and see in theaters? We’d love to hear your thoughts, so join in on the conversation in the comments below and tell us what you think!
