This week, Robert Downey Jr. keeps his Iron fist clenched around the top spot as the most BitTorrented film this week (surprising that The Dark Knight hasn’t nabbed that spot). He’s joined by Jason Statham driving really fast in Death Race and Steve Carrell’s bumbling secret agent Get Smart, both of which are new to the list.

Meanwhile, over on the Video Breakouts Cool 100 list, music continues to dominate with record labels and artists responsible for most of the activity in the top 10, but Hulu made its debut on the list, and Machinima.com’s game videos climbed a couple notches as well.
