Disney Pixar CARS 2: If You Love Me, You’ll Steal Me

Well, it’s sort of a backhanded tribute, of the @674 movies released in the US, CARS 2 was the 6th most popular movie title search term on BitTorrent sites.

So, that’s something.

Beaten out only by Thor (#1), Harry Potter, Kung Fu Panda 2, Green Lantern, & Transformers 3 (in this order).

ADULTS might want to look at the full list – nothing really not safe for work but not for kids nevertheless. Some people do not have much imagination when searching … if you want to violate your friend’s privacy – you can search their IP address to see what torrents they have DLed). :-)

Though CARS 2 did not actually make the list of the most pirated movies of 2011. So, Disney-Pixar should be happy about that – that people wanted to download a copy but looks like many ended paying real money for a disc. It would up 4th on the Best selling DVD-Blu Ray discs of 2011. About 45% of CARS 2 sales were Blu Ray (yes, some people might bemoan calling a Blu Ray a “DVD,” but the sales charts still call everything on discs DVD’s).

CARS 2 ended up as the 7th highest grossing film in the US.*

*The only movie still in release in the US that is scooping up big bucks is Mission Impossible 4 – still about $105 million behind but that’s the only film that can push CARS 2 to 8th which is where it is in international grosses for 2011. MI4 and Tintin are doing well internationally so CARS 2 might drop a couple notches but Top 10 is pretty locked in.

    I can attest to that list. The entire summer, I kept looking for pirated clips on youtube. Unlike the previous summer when there were many that popped up from Toy Story 3, there were almost no unofficial Cars 2 clips being uploaded.

    Btw, I play ball and always buy when it comes out…I’m a big believer in ‘if you like something enough, you will buy it.’ Well, except I won’t pay several grand for that pair of Back to the Future sneakers (darn things don’t even power-lace!).

    I am strongly against piracy. Do yourself a favour if you use BitTorrent or something similar and go and actually start buying music or movies or whatever and actually support artist’s and people’s jobs.

    I did my part to help DVD sales. I bought four copies and I talked so much about CARS at work, a bunch of coworkers went out and bought the DVD!
