FURY ROAD

2015 has seen a sharp rise in piracy on the previous year, with Summer blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road topping this year’s illegal download chart. George Miller’s Mad Max sequel/remake/reboot/revisiting has had 22.90 million torrent shares so far this year, the runaway leader ahead of Jurassic World (18.16 million), Avengers: Age of Ultron (15.87 million), Insurgent (14.46 million), and Terminator: Genisys (13.94 million).

While Mad Max: Fury Road surpassed Jurassic World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Terminator: Genisys in illegal downloads, both films cleaned up while in cinemas, with worldwide box office takings of $1.6 billion for Jurassic World, $1.5 billion for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and $436 million for Terminator: Genisys, compared to Mad Max: Fury Road’s respectable $374.2 million.

Piracy overall has seen a 29% rise compared to 2014, according to piracy tracking firm Excipio, which has been attributed to a comparably higher box office performance of this year’s biggest films; last year’s cinema offerings delivered a seven-year low in ticket sales, according to Rentrak, while 2015 was the second-best on record. Regarding torrent sharing, the top five films last Summer, of which Captain America: The Winter Soldier was most popular, garnered 66 million downloads, while this year’s top five accrued 85.34 million over the same period.
