The Wolf of Wall Street, directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, was the most-pirated film of 2014, Variety reported.

Disney’s Frozen, featuring the annoyingly catchy "Let It Go" song, came in at a close second with both films being downloaded around 30 million times by torrent users globally in 2014, according to data collected by a piracy-tracking firm Excipio.

Robocop took the third spot, having been downloaded over 29 million times, while Gravity and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug completed the top five.

The data spans the period from 1 January to 23 December 2014.

 

In the hedonistic Wolf of Wall Street DicCaprio plays real-life banker Jordan Belfort, who wrote a memoir about his experiences as a stockbroker in New York City. Meanwhile, Frozen is a modern take on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen.

Meanwhile, on the TV side of things, Game of Thrones was the most pirated show of the year.

The hugely successful HBO drama is estimated to have been illegally downloaded 8.1 million times, according to news site TorrentFreak.
