We have already come to the end of the first half of January and many films have come and gone from theatres. In the underworld of the internet, pirates work nonstop to bring to the public those films that, for one reason or another, have been hit on the big screen – even if illegally.
On this week’s list, the most pirated movie is also a rookie: The First Man . Starring Ryan Gosling, the biopic tells the story of astronaut Neil Armstrong and his entire odyssey to his feet on the moon and say the famous phrase: “A small step for man, but a great leap for mankind.”
Soon after, the podium is completed by two superhero movies. Aquaman takes the silver medal just the week the news broke that it surpassed the $ 1 billion mark at the box office, while Venom is in third place – a feat both considering the bittersweet taste he leaves in who watches it.
In addition to these three productions, what we see in the rest of the ranking of most downloaded movies in the torrent portals is a true dance of the chairs, without any great news. The exception is because of the independent feature film Gray in the Snow , which appears here for the first time in the tail of the queue telling the story of a young woman in love with art.
Check out the full list of most pirated movies of the week. Each production comes with its trailers and synopses.
