TorrentFreak has released a rundown of the most pirated video games and movies of 2011.
Topping the list of games is the PC version of German developer Crytek’s hit sequel Crysis 2 with 3.92 million downloads, which is something of a surprise considering how many huge titles were released last year. It was followed by a much more expected name in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which was downloaded 3.65 million times for the PC. Battlefield 3, FIFA 12, and Portal 2 rounded out the PC list.
Source Code, Your Highness, Jane Eyre,, and Rango are part of Amazon’s Instant Video movie rental deals for this weekend. Rent these titles for only $1.99 each and you’ll have access to the movie for 24-48 hours once the rental is activated. You can visit the main sale page — $1.99 Weekend Special: Top Movie Rentals for $1.99 — to access the aforementioned rentals, along with a few other titles like Something Borrowed, Mars Needs Moms, and The Company Men.
Ever want to watch the same episode of a TV show over and over again, but as if it were new every single time? Yeah, now you may have your wish.
Joking aside, THR is reporting that CBS has picked up a pitch from Mark Gordon, producer of the Duncan Jones film Source Code, which would see the show be converted into a new running TV series. The show will follow “three former federal agents who are part of a top-secret program. Each week, they’ll use “Source Code” technology to jump into the consciousness of people involved in tragic events.”
Source Code, The King’s Speech, The Adjustment Bureau, and The Lincoln Lawyer are part of Amazon’s Instant Video rental deals for this weekend. Rent these titles for only $1.99 each and you’ll have access to the movie for 24-48 hours once the rental is activated. Outside of the special weekend deal are 99 Movie Rentals For Under $3, which includes Disney’s Up, The Hangover, the Harry Potter movies, the Spy Kids movies, The Dark Knight, The Princess Bride, Back to the Future, National Treasure, and much more, with some as low as $.99.
Source Code $1.99 | 48 hours Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the mind-bending action thriller about an experimental government program used to try and stop a deadly terrorist attack in downtown Chicago.
The King’s Speech $1.99 | 24 hours Winner of four Oscars(R) including “Best Picture” and “Best Actor,” The King’s Speech is based on the true story of King George VI’s quest to find his voice. Starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham Carter.
The Adjustment Bureau $1.99 | 48 hours An action thriller about a man (Matt Damon) who decides to fight the powerful Adjustment Bureau, risking his political future to be with the only woman he’s ever loved (Emily Blunt).
Sony has signed Ben Ripley, who wrote the screenplay for the Duncan Jones mind-bender Source Code, to pen a remake of the 1990 film Flatliners, which starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, and William Baldwin.
The original Joel Schumacher film centered on a group of medical students conducting near-death experiments.
Laurence Mark will produce the new film, which Deadline reports will be “a contemporary reimagining.” Right, remake, exactly, except let me guess: the group uses the Internet — better yet, Facebook! — to conduct the experiments!
