The Bulletin of the Film Distributor portal has named the most popular films by “pirates” in Russia over the past month with reference to a study by Group-IB.
The list was compiled based on the largest number of illegal copies available on Runet online platforms in August 2022. The statistics do not reflect the number of views, but, as noted, is a direct indicator of the demand for content from viewers.
Nine out of ten places were taken by films that were not officially released in Russia.
The leaders are the fantastic action movie about the Predator “Prey”, the air blockbuster “Top Gun: Maverick” took the second place, and the comic book movie “Thor: Love and Thunder” took the third place.
The top also included Jordan Peele’s new film “No”, the biopic “Elvis”, the vampire buddy movie “Day Shift” with Jamie Foxx and the superhero movie “Samaritan” with Sylvester Stallone. The full list is posted below.
