The film, which was released in 2014, was downloaded 46.8 million times, according to piracy tracking firm Excipio, reports variety.com.
Other movies prominent on the list are several big money makers like 'Furious 7' (44.8 million), 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' (41.6 million) and 'Jurassic World' (36.9 million).
However, this year's record-breaking movie 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' doesn't make it into the list, probably because the movie didn't start showing up on piracy sites until several days after its release. There's still a chance that it will top the same list in 2016.
In 2014, just like 'Interstellar' did, the 2013 release 'The Wolf of Wall Street' led the pack to become the most pirated movie. The Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer was downloaded 30 million times last year, significantly less than the space movie's nearly 47 million downloads.
