X-Men, Hangover sequels lead most-pirated-films list


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It’s Hollywood’s greatest challenge, preventing movie pirates from stealing summer blockbusters and streaming them online. And it’s a fight that has been fought for years.

Yet the industry appears to be losing ground, as the box office Top 10 mirrors a list in THR of the 10 most-pirated films.

Matthew Vaughn’s prequel “X-Men: First Class” leads the list of the most downloaded films via BitTorrent, THR reports. The Liam Neeson thriller “Unknown” was in second place, while similar summer hits “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “The Hangover Part II” can be found on the list.

Of course, piracy is illegal, and theaters do everything in their power to prevent the act. But clean copies of DVD rips still can be found online, biting into studio profits and creating a headache in local multiplexes as the industry attempts to crack down.
