So, guys, 2010 is almost over, and what a movie-year it has been!

Let’s check some titles right here, at the beginning: Avatar, Kick-Ass, Inception, The Hurt Locker, Clash of the Titans

Ok, you already smell that some numbers are coming in our little story, so let’s get straight to the point.

We’re here to share some interesting announcement that just came from TorrentFreak, and that’s the full list of the 10 most pirated films of 2010 and, of course, number of downloads:

1. Avatar / 16,580,000

2. Kick-Ass / 11,400,000

3. Inception / 9,720,000

4. Shutter Island / 9,490,000

5. Iron Man 2 / 8,810,000

6. Clash of the Titans / 8,040,000

7. Green Zone / 7,730,000

8. Sherlock Holmes / 7,160,000

9. The Hurt Locker / 6,850,000

10. Salt / 6,700,000

No surprise here!

Avatar is the most pirated film of the year, and according to THR statistics that represents a 33% increase in download activity from last year’s top-pirated film, Star Trek, which was downloaded just under 11 million times.

Funny James Cameron! He has frequently touted 3D filmmaking as the industry’s best hope for combating piracy, but 3D glasses didn’t hold back pirates from shattering all recorded piracy records.

And wait, don’t tell us you actually expected Hurt Locker on the top of this list?

Ok, we’re joking, but the truth is that it was the lowest-grossing film on the list, with just under $50 million at the worldwide box office.

As you see, second on the list is Kick-Ass, distributed in the US by Lionsgate. Movie recorded 11,400,000 downloads and grossed $48 million domestically (plus another $48 million overseas).

Right after this movie is Warner Bros’ Inception with 9,720,000 downloads that has been the top pirated film these past couple months and was the most-pirated film last week, ahead of its DVD launch.
