MIAMI (CBS) – “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” was the most pirated film of the year, according to a list compiled by TorrentFreak.

The website estimates that the film — which was released in December 2012 and earned more than $1 billion at the global box office — was illegally downloaded 8.4 million times.

Other films with the dubious honor of making the list include “Django Unchained” (8.1 million), “Fast & Furious 6” (7.9 million) and “Iron Man 3” (7.6 million).

TorrentFreak says it compiled the data for its year-end list through several sources, including download statistics recorded by public BitTorrent trackers, but does not include online streaming or cyberlocker downloads.

1. “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” (8.4 million)
