Films starring Jessica Alba, Vin Diesel, and Tom Hardy appear in this week’s list of the most pirated movies on the Internet.




Did you know that each week numerous films fall prey to people who don’t mind illegally copying and distributing movies? Mmm-hmm, it’s true. The mass bootlegging encompasses a wide array of movies, be they big, blockbuster summer extravaganzas or small art house flicks. In fact, the pirating is so prevalent that our friends at TorrentFreak chronicle the happenings via a weekly top 10 list of the most-pirated movies on the Internet. And this week’s selection of bootlegged movies includes projects from the likes of Jessica Alba, Vin Diesel, Tom Hardy, and other movie industry notables.

Now, before I continue, it’s important to state that PCMag doesn’t condone illegally streaming or downloading movies. At all. That’s not what we’re trying to accomplish here. This most pirated movies roundup contains mere observations about the nature of Internet film piracy. That’s it. We’re just the messengers, folks, and possess no ill will toward movie studios, even though they greenlight dreck at an incredible rate.

With that clarification out of the way, let’s talk about last week’s crop of pirated movies!
