They're ordered way different than I would've expected

Fast Five was the most successful film of the franchise so far and was a super duper hit. It has a much higher rating then any other Fast and Furious films as it has a 7.3 on IMDB.

The rock vs Diesel fight was great and was very well liked. It was a throwback to the old school fist fights with the big hero's.

It was very popular with young people and was easily one of the best action blockbuster film of the year.

The King's Speech had a lot of buzz and people do care if films win awards, as people check them out to see the buzz.

Hangover 2 makes sense as Hangover 1 is one of the most pirated films of all time.

Young people liked it and its certain that Fast Six will be a much bigger hit in 2013 or whatever.

 

 

However piracy does not equal box office failure. Most pirated films ever are Avatar, The Dark Knight, Transformers 1, Inception, Hangover, Star Trek

When a big movie is pirated a lot, people usually like and end up watching the sequel



first place is easy. nothing against those people but i believe the audience watching fast and furious movies isn't the category "i own much money" it's the category "i'm young without money and i love tuning cars" and i believe these people are more in the illegal downloading scene than someone mid 40 earning 100k per year or the kids of them. this movie was really good for the series but it has gotten some special fans over the past movies of this series.



Very shocked Sucker Punch is on that list. If the publisher knew it was being pirated that much, you'd think they would offer alternative (e.g. Netflix) rights pretty quickly.

Fast Five - People really want to see it... kinda.

I really wonder why Vin Diesel isn't going to be in The Expendables 2,since he has such star-power.

                               

All the top ones are pretty much movies that people were iffy on whether they wanted to see them or not.

Even the fast furious movie I am sure some were not sure if number 5? Would be good or not.

 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

I think these sorts of lists speak to the type of audience which pirates media content (primarily males age 18-30). If all of the people who pirated Fast Five in this list alone paid to see the movie instead, it would have been about another $100 million in box office gross. Insane.

Yeah but many of them probably went to see it in cinemas just because they dloaded it and liked it but wanted to see it in proper quality.

but therefore many watched the movie with friends so maybe they would have gone to the cinema together ;)  many share the movies with friends and whatever.

nobody can really say how many less went to the cinema because of pirating it's hard to say. i would only watch pirated movies when i don't want to see it in the cinema so i will be never a lost visitor for the cinema. but i don't pirate because movies i don't want to see in cinema don't interest me so much and i wait until i see this movie on pay-tv or so.
