3 high school seniors throw a birthday party so boss it apparently got shared/downloaded almost 9 million times -- apparently making it the #1 pirated movie of of 2012. Congratulations to the filmmakers and studio not seeing a penny of those grosses? They don't need it, right? Torrent Freak compiled a list of the most shared movies on BitTorrent in 2012. Leading at number one is “Project X,” the Todd Phillips-produced/Warner Bros.-distributed party comedy that actually features no stars (in fact if the average pleeb can name an actor in the cast off the top of their head without the aid of Google, hats off to them).
