Wolf of Wall Street Paramount Pictures It’s easier than ever to pirate online content, a fact that’s compelled millions of people to download movies illegally. Piracy-tracking firm Excipio recently put together a list of the most-pirated movies of 2014—think of it as yet another year-end “best of” list, albeit one guaranteed to drive Hollywood executives into a rage—and the rankings contain few surprises: What triumphed at the box office also tended to do well on websites devoted to pirated content. The following list contains Excipio’s estimates of how many times a particular film was downloaded illegally. Much to its producers’ chagrin, Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street can now add “Most Pirated” to its list of other awards and nominations:

1. The Wolf of Wall Street: 30.035 million 2. Frozen: 29.919 million 3. RoboCop*: 29.879 million 4. Gravity: 29.357 million 5. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: 27.627 million 6.
