Torrent Freak ranked the top 10 most pirated movies of 2012, which served up very few surprises, other than the fact that Project X came out on top as the most downloaded movie of the year!

Project X was downloaded an amazing 8.72 million times, beating out Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (8.5 million), The Dark Knight Rises (8.23 million), The Avengers (8.11 million), and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (7.85 million).

Project X didn’t create much of a buzz when it was initially released, but that didn’t stop viewers from downloading it by the millions!

The film was marketed towards high school and college kids, who typically don’t have money to blow, but are very familiar with the workings of the internet.

Furthermore, the fact that it was a comedy, there was no additional pull for audiences to want to see million-dollar special effects on the big screen, in 3D, or in IMAX like some of the others on the list.
