Top Downloads on P2P for 2007

Wired have reported on the top downloads on P2P networks for 2007. See the full article here.

Now I've never heard of Akon or half the rappers in the top 10 of music I do know a little bit more about the film side of things. And looking at the report it makes me wonder.

The top then movies downloaded in 2007 according to Wired are:

1. Resident Evil: Extinction
2. Pirates of The Caribbean: At World's End
3. I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry
4. Ratatouille
5. Superbad
6. Beowulf
7. Transformers
8. American Gangster
9. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
10. Stardust

I'm not 100% sure the data is accurate though (these networks don't exactly provide logs) as "I now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" being the #3 movie. C'mon. The Simpson's movie was everywhere on the networks and had a greater global appeal than some B grade comedy. And Stardust? That's certainly not the film for the "P2P crowd, which is made up largely of younger males."

This also shows that while music seems to be suffering because of P2P, all the films in the top download list did pretty good in the box office. Yep even Chuck and Larry pulled in $120 million.

So film distributors needn't be worried about P2P downloads, Box Office earnings were the biggest yet $9.68 billion with ticket sales staying steady from 2006.

29 sequels in 2007 brought in 22% of the earnings, or $2 Billion dollars. Compared to the 346 original screen plats that brought in $3.3 Billion.

I look forward to "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry 2" coming to theaters soon.
