'Fast Five' most pirated movie of 2011

"Avatar" and "Fast Five" don't share similar accolades, but there's one award both films hold, and that's being among the most pirated movies.

"Avatar" took the top spot on TorrentFreak's 2010 list of most heavily shared films, and this year "Fast Five" laid claim to the title.

According to the site, the film, which grossed $626 million worldwide, was downloaded 9.26 million times via BitTorrent. ("Avatar," meanwhile, was shared 16 million times in 2010.)

Coming in second place is the summer blockbuster comedy "The Hangover: Part II," which was downloaded 8.84 million times. "Thor" rounds out the top three, having been downloaded 8.3 million times.

The remainder of the top 10 includes "Source Code" (No. 4); "I Am Number Four" (No. 5); "Sucker Punch" (No. 6); "127 Hours" (No. 7); "Rango" (No. 8); "The King's Speech" (No. 9); "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Pt. II" (No. 10).

    Ugh. We all have this pirating ability, yet the quality of movies is so poor I feel no urge to pirate any of them.

    Surprised "The King's Speech" was in the top 10. I liked the movie, but didn't realize it was so well received.

      I think you meant lesbians, not lesbeans. Incorrectly spelled insults tend to backfire.
