Indeed, the most torrented movie among the 10 nominated for an Oscar was “District 9.” Being one of my personal favourites, I’m happy to see that the movie is extremely popular among the general public (contrary to the Academy which didn’t even consider one win for this awesome flick).
At the same time however, imagine the amount of ticket/DVD/Blu-ray sales that have gone to waste. As a consolation to the studio however, it’s to be remembered that on a budget of $30 million, it grossed more than $200 million worldwide.
With 12,639,000 downloads bring it to the top, District 9 is followed by “Avatar,” then followed by “The Hurt Locker,” “Up” (so many naughty downloading 7-year-olds?), and “Inglourious Basterds.” At the very end of the freeloading preference table came Bulllock’s “The Blind Side” and “An Education.”
