Top Torrents: Tom Cruise's 'Mission Impossible: Fallout' tops list as most pirated movie of the week

Whoever thinks Tom Cruise does not have things going for him, here's a note for you: please back off because the face of the 'Mission Impossible' franchise is still ruling the charts when it comes to the most downloaded movies. While movie piracy rankings are not something to brag about openly (even though 90 percent of the general populace lives on downloading movies off the internet) the latest installment of the MI series, 'Mission Impossible: Fallout' is the most downloaded movie on BitTorrent this week, beating the likes of super hyped and anticipated Netflix originals like 'Outlaw King' and 'Crazy Rich Asians.'

 

Followed by some equally popular movies, the action thriller with an 8.1 IMDb rating managed to beat films like ‘The Meg' and 'The Equalizer 2' - all three of which complete the top three list. Even one of the biggest Disney releases this year, 'Incredibles 2' couldn't make it to the top three and fell short in front of the Mission Impossible film. Resting easy on a still impressive fourth spot, it was followed by one of the most talked about films of the year - the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper-starrer musical romance, 'A Star is Born' which has seen one of the biggest fan following in the shortest period of time.

 

Coming in hot at a sad sixth position was the CIA thriller starring Mark Wahlberg, called 'Mile 22.' Sadly, much like its poor IMDb ratings, the movie has clearly had no luck with people rushing to store it in their devices - much like the Netflix war drama 'Outlaw King,' starring Chris Pine and his highly anticipated penis. The gory period drama on King Robert the Bruce has been dubbed as the substitute for HBO's 'Game of Thrones' this year but unfortunately it did not live up to the hype when it came to the nude scene fans were so eagerly looking forward to.

 

Filling the eighth position is 'The Ballad of Buster Scruggs' - "an anthology film comprised of six stories, each dealing with a different aspect of life in the Old West," as its IMDb page describes it. With a unique concept, it's hard to understand why more people didn't feel the need to watch it on their devices, but even 'Alpha' was met with the same fate. The story about a young man finding a lost wolf companion was able to beat the Netflix dramedy 'Crazy Rich Asians' - which sounds like a shocker considering how highly anticipated the latter was, because of its all-Asian cast and rich display of their culture and heritage.
