If streaming platforms continue to develop at a breakneck pace each year, piracy still has a bright future ahead of it. In 2022, Mubi and Variety joined forces to develop a tool capable of measuring piracy in all its forms: illegal streaming, torrents, direct downloading via websites or even ripping platforms. According to their calculations, blockbusters continued to be among the most pirated movies last year, especially Marvel and DC productions including Spider-Man: No Way Home, Black Adam, The Eternals, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder or even The Batman, which make up a good part of the top 10. The success of Top Gun: Maverick at the box office did not prevent Internet users from hacking it galore, just like Uncharted, the adaptation of video games from Naughty Dog worn by Tom Holland. Finally, we complete the top 10 with Jurassic World: The World After, not the best choice even for mater gratos, and Encanto, the fantastic Madrigal family, a Disney animated feature film released in 2021. see also on KonbiniContrary to popular belief, the democratization of streaming platforms and the diversity of the offer do not reduce piracy, on the contrary. Pirates take advantage of the release of films on these platforms to offer free versions in very good quality, which return to dust the format of the “camrip”, the clandestine recording of a work in the cinema for example (and often in mediocre). Finally, if we extricate ourselves a little from the top 10, we find just behind another Marvel (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) but also and above all Avatar: the way of the water which, in just three weeks of exploitation in cinemas in 2022, will probably be the most pirated film of 2023.
