Topping the list was Fast Five, the latest in the Vin Diesel car racing franchise series. At 9.26 million, the film was well ahead of the Hangover 2 which came in second at 8.8 million downloads.
A few of the more surprising films on the list were Rango and Sucker Punch which were not very popular movies but found interested pirates. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which both made over $1 billion at the box office, did not crack the top 10, most likely because quality pirated versions did not appear until near the movie's DVD release dates.
For the list, TF uses public trackers and other sources and includes all release formats, from camera versions to Blu-ray copies and everything in between.
