The Wolf Of Wall Street Tops List Of Most Pirated Films Of 2014

With 2015 mere days away, it’s time to reflect upon the cinematic treats gifted to us in 2014. Well, we always do anyways, that in the shape of Best-Of lists that serve as happy reminders of the year’s finest big screen achievements. So, in the spirit of Scrooge and all things miserly and cheap, we can now see the top 20 most pirated films of the year thanks to piracy-tracking firm, Excipio (via Variety). Excipio’s report was drafted with raw data which was collected between January 1st, 2014 and December 23rd, 2014.

Taking a glance over the list, it’s interesting to see Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street sitting pretty at the top. Racking up a staggering 30 million illegal downloads since the beginning of the year, Wolf is followed up by Disney’s Frozen, which notched up an equally-staggering 29.9 million illegal torrents.

As noted by Yahoo! Movies, none of the year’s biggest grossing movies made it onto the list. Guardians Of The Galaxy didn’t even graze the top 20, nor did the year’s fourth-biggest, The LEGO Movie.
