"Die dunkle Seite des Mondes" premiered and was first released in German-speaking countries only. The movie was only available in German with English subtitles. The line graph on top is an excerpt of a PIC trend report, showing the TOP 5 countries with the highest number of unique file sharers in the respective time frame of the movie. The lines show the development of daily unique file sharers over time.

A few days after DVD and Blu-Ray release, a torrent with a "self-made" Russian dubbed audio version (Russian audio overlaying the German) was shared. Shortly after, file sharing of the movie peaked up - in contrast to all other countries - in Russia, revealing an unexpected additional target market for "die dunkle Seite des Mondes".
