The Hobbit: The Most Pirated Movie Last Week

The_Hobbit_AUJ_DVD_cover_marqueeYou can take this as you like but, last week, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was the most pirated movie on BitTorrent.

The Hobbit has been in the top ten most pirated ever since it was released, but has not been in the number one slot  for a while.  It replaced Oz The Great and Powerful, pushing that into second place says softpedia.

No doubt the US dvd release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Peter Jackson’s sneek peak at The Desolation of Smaug rekindled a lot of interest in the film once more.

    Could it be because of the horrible way the WB decided to distribute it’s digital copy via Ultraviolet? hmmmm

  2. Duh. This is why staggered dvd release dates are a bad idea. I don’t know why studios don’t seem to understand this.
