Torrentfreak closed out this year with their list of the top pirated movies of 2016. Here are the top 5, with budget and revenue so ou can see how much profit these films brought in, regardless of piracy.
5. X-Men Apocalypse
Production Budget: $178 million – Domestic Total Gross: $155,442,489
4. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Production Budget: $245 million – Domestic Total Gross: $936,662,225
3. Captain America: Civil War
Production Budget: $250 million – Domestic Total Gross: $408,084,349
2. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Production Budget: $250 million – Domestic Total Gross: $330,360,194
Production Budget: $58 million – Domestic Total Gross: $363,070,709
So the list isn’t anything surprising. The more popular the film, the more likely it is to be on this list. Now counting ticket sales in only 2016, Captain America: Civil War grossed the most ticket sales on this list. Pirating isn’t hurting these pictures at the box office and it seems pirates really like big blockbusters v arthouse cinema.
