fast five 'Fast Five' is the most pirated movie of 2011“Fast Five” will probably not be at the top of many year-end movie lists — best, worst, biggest hits or otherwise. But it is No. 1 somewhere, although probably not where its studio, Universal, would want it to be.

The movie was the most pirated film of 2011, according to data compiled by TorrentFreak. The Vin DieselPaul WalkerDwayne Johnson action saga was swapped almost 9.3 million times via BitTorrent.

That’s a lot, but it’s way down from 2010 piracy leader “Avatar,” which racked up more than 16 million downloads. TorrentFreak says the average for the Top 10 this year was also way down from 2010, although the number of BitTorrent users didn’t decline.

“The Hangover Part II” and “Thor” were second and third on the list, each with more than 8 million downloads.

Best picture winner “The King’s Speech” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” also made the Top 10, but it wasn’t all hits. Middling box-office performers like “Source Code” and “Sucker Punch” also made the list.

Here’s the Top 10, per TorrentFreak:

1. “Fast Five”
2. “The Hangover Part II”
3. “Thor”
4. “Source Code”
5. “I Am Number Four”
6. “Sucker Punch”
7. “127 Hours”
8. “Rango”
9. “The King’s Speech”
10. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2”
