Despite grossing nearly $800 million at the world wide box office, the insane popularity of 'Deadpool' has seen the film top the list of most torrented film of 2016.




According to a report published by Torrent Freak, the Ryan Reynolds lead 'X-Men' spin-off triggered millions of downloads following the February theatrical release, and continuing strongly throughout the year. In no big surprise, Hollywood's 2016 tent pole blockbusters such as 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' followed closely in second place, with 'Captain America: Civil War' and 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' took fourth and fifth place respectively.


Meanwhile, the Digital Entertainment Group confirmed this week that sell-through of packaged movie media on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD was down 9.5% for the year, but digital releases such as streaming and video on demand was up 15.2%.
