After a short break, our list of most pirated movies of the week is back filled with news. Of the 10 titles in the ranking, seven of them are unpublished, which gives us the notion that the turnover in streaming and video on demand services is high.
Also noteworthy is the number of films that were massacred by the critics and that, despite this, attracted enough public attention to the point of appearing on the list. And maybe that’s why these productions are here, since many people end up resorting to piracy to take a “look” at them.
In any case, it also has a record-breaking film at the box office in the survey that Canaltech does weekly to keep you informed, as well as a title acclaimed by experts. But who took the crown for the most pirated film of the week was an original comedy from a streaming service that is about to arrive in Brazil.
