The merc with a mouth comes out on top.
The Ryan Reynolds starrer Deadpool which was released in February of 2016 is the year’s most illegally downloaded movie. This is according to a report published by Torrent Freak.
While the movie set box office records and is one of the few R-rated movies to make a lot of money (earning almost $800 million), the immense popularity of the character and its no-holes-barred depiction of violence which the character is known for may have helped make it one of the most anticipated movies to be released last year – and also the most illegally downloaded.
Here is the top 10 list of the most illegally downloaded movies of 2016:
- 1. Deadpool
- 2. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
- 3. Captain America: Civil War
- 4. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
- 5. X-Men: Apocalypse
- 6. Warcraft
- 7. Independence Day: Resurgence
- 8. Suicide Squad
- 9. Finding Dory
