'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Frozen' Most Pirated Films of 2014

The Wolf of Wall Street and Frozen were the most pirated films of 2014, Variety reports. Both films were illegally downloaded roughly 30 million times from various torrent sites between Jan. 1 and Dec. 23, 2014.

It should come as no surprise that the top of the list consists primarily of blockbusters like The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past. More dramatic films like Gravity, 12 Years a Slave, Noah and Captain Phillips also made the top 20.

Here's the full list as compiled by Excipio, a group that specifically tracks piracy. For what it's worth, films like RoboCop and Hercules are difficult to track because of preexisting films sharing the same names. In fact, RoboCop's numbers as listed include the new film as well as the 1987 original.
