Here are the most pirated movies of 2014

While Guardians of the Galaxy seems poised to be the highest grossing film of 2014, those who illegally download movies appear to have slightly different tastes than the general theater-going public.

According to calculations by piracy-tracking firm Excipio reported by Variety, the most-torrented movie of 2014 was The Wolf of Wall Street, which was downloaded about 30 million times during Excipio's tracking period of Jan. 1 to Dec. 23. Disney's addictive animated musical Frozen came in at a close second, with 29.9 million downloads worldwide. Check out the whole list below, via Variety:

As Variety notes, Robocop's downloads were complicated to calculate because the download numbers included both the 1987 film and the 2014 reboot. The Legend of Hercules, too, may have had its numbers combined with another 2014 film, Hercules, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
