Coming in second place was Furious 7 with 44.7 million downloads, and Avengers: Age of Ultron with 41.5 million. Excipio tracks BitTorrent downloads, noting that there were 36.8 million downloads of Jurassic World, and 36.4 million for Mad Max: Fury Road. Here's the full list and their exact downloads:

These numbers wouldn't include downloads through VPNs, Usenet and other underground sources - so I'd expect these numbers to be quite conservative.
