From January to December, 2016 wound up being a big year for box office numbers - the industry posting a record-setting gross as major hits were released theatrically in just about every single month. Of course, in the modern world, major blockbusters also mean major illegal download numbers, and the past twelve months were definitely no exception.

TorrentFreak has posted its annual list of the most downloaded movies on BitTorrent, and while there are plenty of expected titles that made the ranking, there are also some interesting surprises as well.

The Revenant

10. The Revenant

Every other film that you'll find on this list would be considered a standard blockbuster by most, but Alejandro González Iñárritu's The Revenant is the exception from the norm. It seems that there was a significant audience that wanted to watch Leonardo DiCaprio suffer in the woods for two-and-a-half hours, but were unwilling to legally pay to do so. It didn't exactly have too much of a negative impact on the box office results, as the film still brought in over $500 million internationally by the time it was done with its big screen run.
