Mad Max: Fury Road is 2015’s Most Pirated Film

2015 has seen a sharp rise in piracy on the previous year, with Summer blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road topping this year’s illegal download chart. George Miller’s Mad Max sequel/remake/reboot/revisiting has had 22.90 million torrent shares so far this year, the runaway leader ahead of Jurassic World (18.16 million), Avengers: Age of Ultron (15.87 million), Insurgent (14.46 million), and Terminator: Genisys (13.94 million).

While Mad Max: Fury Road surpassed Jurassic World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Terminator: Genisys in illegal downloads, both films cleaned up while in cinemas, with worldwide box office takings of $1.6 billion for Jurassic World, $1.5 billion for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and $436 million for Terminator: Genisys, compared to Mad Max: Fury Road’s respectable $374.2 million.

Piracy overall has seen a 29% rise compared to 2014, according to piracy tracking firm Excipio, which has been attributed to a comparably higher box office performance of this year’s biggest films; last year’s cinema offerings delivered a seven-year low in ticket sales, according to Rentrak, while 2015 was the second-best on record. Regarding torrent sharing, the top five films last Summer, of which Captain America: The Winter Soldier was most popular, garnered 66 million downloads, while this year’s top five accrued 85.34 million over the same period.

The First Trailer to Terminator: Genisys is Here, Arnie Promised He’d Be Back

The Terminator franchise has been pretty dead for a while, with the craptastic Terminator: Salvation, and the barely better Terminator: Rise of the Machines, but now it is really back, with a kind of reboot, kind of tie in with The Terminator and Terminator 2 in the form of Terminator: Genisys.

The trailer for the new movie, can be found below:

Yeah, it doesn’t look half bad, doesn’t it? It has time travel elements that see them revisiting some of the locations from The Terminator, as well as a new T-1000 that seems to be wrecking havok wherever he goes. I’m pretty excited for this, what about you?
