It seems several folks this year wanted to watch a movie about a party without actually having to pay for it.

Which brings us to the flick that leads the list of the most pirated movies of 2012.

Project X was downloaded 8.7 million times, according to TorrentFreak, which tracks this sort of thing.

Coming in second was Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol with 8.5 million downloads, followed by The Dark Knight Rises with 8.2 million.

The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, 21 Jump Street, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Dictator, Ice Age: Continental Drift and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 rounded out the top 10.

Missing from the list? Surprisingly, such blockbusters as The Hunger Games and Skyfall.
