To be pirated in Hollywood, or parodied is one of the greatest compliments in show biz. But for many filmmakers, pirating is not cool for their true success being recognized financially in garnering a return for the studios who back them.
According to TorrentFreak.Com, the most pirated film on the planet (perhaps displaying an honest theme trend), is a movie based on the exploitation of an indigenous population’s mineral resources, in 3D.
We all know the film. It paints a cast of characters based on a tribe of Indigenous People dubbed “Nai’vi” – blue. And it’s called Avatar:
The Top Ten most pirated films of all time reflect trends of super heroes characters, drunken boys nights out, and good triumphing over evil. The films are:

Photo via Horiwood.Com . At the moment, Australia is perhaps the one nation, giving the most mineral resouces to Super Powers currently, that we’re aware of. I find these findings interesting on a trends level, or what the world wants and is looking at in film. I honestly would have thought Bruce Lee films or a Bollywood classic like Kucha Kucha Hota Hai would have been more pirated than some of these films. They have their own appeal to large audiences within the West and the East too.

UNITED STATES OF AUSSIE-SPIELBERG BILLBOARDS IN HOLLYWOOD POSTS – 3.8.11
A billboard message as photographed five minutes ago in Hollywood let’s us know the new direction of Washington-Hollywood’s next show. It’s a little Toni Collette or Hugh Jackman too, definitely very Nicole Kidman-esque as well.
From Steven Spielberg’s show comes the billboard message, “The battle for the student body has begun.” The best trained student minds go where? That is the question, especially in the scientific field of green energy technologies advancement. :)
It’s now a battle of the smarts. I love it!!!
