'Avatar' And 'The Dark Knight' Among The Most Pirated Movies Ever
The Moviefone Blog:
Imagine how much money "greedy motherf--ker" James Cameron could have made on 'Avatar' if it wasn't stolen by dastardly Internet pirates. According to a report from the website TorrentFreak, 'Avatar' -- the highest grossing movie ever -- is the most pirated movie of all time. The film -- which, as THR notes, was touted by the director as being the best hope against piracy because of 3D -- has been illegally downloaded 21 million times, two million more than runner-ups 'The Dark Knight' and 'Transformers.' All three films grossed over $700 million worldwide, but their DVD revenues could have been hurt by the illegal downloads.
