The 10 Most Pirated Movies

Morgan Freeman and his bank-robbing cronies join the list this week.
The 10 Most Pirated Movies

TorrentFreak's most pirated movies list is an excellent gauge of popular movies as well as the Hollywood zeitgeist.

Not much changed with the list this week—perhaps the pirates were too busy taking in the return of Spider-Man and the Apes at the box office, or stocking up on snacks for the Game of Thrones party on Sunday. Either way, the only new entry is a surprising one: the elders-rob-a-bank comedy Going in Style.

Which film dropped off the top 10 for that flick to get a spot? None other than Transformers! When Alan Arkin can outshine Optimus Prime in the hearts of downloaders, we know the world is topsy-turvy.

If you've seen any movies on this list (and we won't ask how), we'd love to hear what you think of them. Which would you rather have, Wonder Woman's lasso, god-killer sword, or her hair? How fast can Tom Cruise really run? Will The Boss Baby ever fall off this list or is it destined to be the most Most Pirated? Let us know in the comments.

    The Mummy (2017)

    Things are off to a rocky start in the "Dark Universe" franchise, as this flick isn't exactly making audiences clamor for an Avengers/Justice League-esque future where new iterations of the Universal Pictures monsters (Mummy, Dracula, Wolf-Man, Frankenstien's Monster, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Invisible Man) all team up. Then again, if the rest of the new franchise doesn't suck as much, maybe it'll be fun. But certainly not scary. Read's review.

    Ghost in the Shell

    The casting of Scarlett Johansson was an obvious misstep, but the film has its issues, too, according to reviews, leading to lackluster box office returns. Read's review.

    The Boss Baby

    You thought Alec Baldwin's greatest role was more presidential in nature? Maybe he was born to be a baby...a BOSS baby. (Or maybe Kelsey Grammer wasn't available.)

    Alien: Covenant

    The sixth flick in the Alien franchise is also the second in the series of prequels, all of which seem to be tweaking things just a little to screw with the "future" in Aliens, which is still the best film in the series. Sorry Ridley, but someone had to say it. Read's full review.

    Despicable Me 3

    Yeah, yeah, Gru finds his brother and tries to stay a good guy while fighting off Cartman from South Park or something. Who cares? All that matters is MOAR MINIONS!

    Wonder Woman

    The first super-hero movie phenom in a long time, Wonder Woman is proving not only that DCEU movies can be great, but that one with a female lead can kick ass. It works on almost every level, especially the performances by Gal Godot, who genuinely appears to have been born for the role (so much so that all the Amazons get her accent), and the tremendously funny Chris "Captain Kirk" Pine as her love interest, who introduces the Amazon princess to a man's world, which happens to be disgusting and dirty. So a lot like most women seeing their date's apartment for the first time. Read's review.

    Kong: Skull Island

    King Kong gets a new origin story in Kong: Skull Island. In this one, he's discovered on an uncharted Pacific island by a Vietnam War helicopter squadron and a team of scientists. It's an uneasy encounter for both sides. Part of the film's appeal might lie with its all-star cast, which includes Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, and Brie Larson. Read's review.

    The Fate of the Furious

    The family finally seems settled, but then a woman named Cipher has Dom betraying them all. The rest of the clan tries to win him and the day back. Read's review.

    King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

    Sometimes, a guy is a genius in a certain milieu. Scorsese is the best at 20th century gangsters, but you probably don't want him directing a Star Wars episode. Guy Ritchie, meanwhile, makes great crime movies. His latest trip back in time, however, has received his worst reviews since he remade Swept Away as a vehicle for his then-wife Madonna in 2002. Time to pull the gun from the stone, Guy, and skip the swords. Everyone else should watch John Boorman's Excalibur and forget any other attempt at updating this particular story. Read's review.

    Going in Style

    When three elderly friends (Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin) decide to rob a bank after their pensions are canceled, hilarity ensues! Probably. This remake (the original had George Burns in it) was directed by Zach "Garden State" Braff, yet somehow Donald Faison does not appear. Or maybe he does. No one has really seen it.
