Desperate, she ends up meeting Youssef and agreeing to work for him in a scheme involving stolen credit cards, which makes a lot of money, and fast.

3. Top Gun: Maverick
Top Gun: Maverick won over audiences not only by bringing a franchise back to life after so long, but also by telling an entertaining story worth watching.
With a great performance by Tom Cruise, the film is an ode to 80’s cinema, but with an updated look that works very well for new and old fans. No wonder it appears in the ranking of the most downloaded since it debuted on digital platforms.
2. Cursed Invitation
Curse Invitation barely debuted in theaters and is already among the most pirated movies of the week. One of the bets of the horror genre this September, it brings that story of leaving us on the edge of the couch, anxious to know what will happen next.
The plot helps a lot in this regard, showing the life of Evie, a young woman who has lost her mother and suddenly finds herself alone in life. Desperate, she decides to take a DNA test and discovers a cousin she didn’t even know she existed. The problem is that the discovery of this distant relative also brings with it dark secrets from the family’s history.
1. Thor: Love and Thunder
Repeating last week’s success, Thor: Love and Thunder is the most pirated movie of the week once again. And this is quite curious, because the film is not one of the best in the MCU, but it has the Marvel seal of quality and has the charisma of Chris Hemsworth living the Norse god.
Betting on a more blatant comedy and less on creating connections with other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the great highlight of love and thunder it is precisely the return of Natalie Portman as a character ready to fight anyone and capable of wielding Mjolnir.
