Fast Five tops illegal download charts

Car-racing sequel starring Vin Diesel comes out ahead of The Hangover Part II and Thor in list of 2011's most pirated films

Sportscar action thriller Fast Five, stag do sequel The Hangover Part II and comic book movie Thor were among the most pirated films of 2011, according to filesharing blog Torrent Freak.

Fast Five, the well-reviewed latest instalment in the Fast and the Furious series, topped the list with 9.2m downloads, while in second place The Hangover II was pirated 8.8m times. Thor, Kenneth Branagh's take on the Marvel comics character, received 8.3m downloads and the top five was rounded out by Duncan Jones's techno-thriller Source Code (7.9m downloads) and teen-orientated sci-fi flick I Am Number Four with 7.6m downloads.

The results, when cross-referenced with this year's global box-office top 10, seem to confirm that 3D films tend to be those filmgoers prefer to see at the cinema rather than downloading illegally.
