Top Ten Highest-Grossing Movies of 2015This list compiles the movies released into theatres in 2015 that had the highest worldwide box office grosses.
While my prediction that The Force Awakens would become the new highest-grossing movie of all time didn't happen, it still delights me to see that the most anticipated movie of my adult life so far made over $2 billion.
It was the highest-grossing movie of most of 2015 and was, from June to December, the third highest-grossing movie of all time, before Star Wars, of course. Not bad for a franchise that hasn't had a new movie for fourteen years.
Paul Walker's death probably had a lot to do with this movie's success. I admit that, but this franchise has done an unbelievable job over the past few years with increasing the quality and earning more fans and money with each installment. That's even more impressive considering that it took five movies for this franchise to finally start blossoming.
Sure, it didn't make as much money as 2012's The Avengers, but $1.4 billion is still $1.4 billion, folks.
The Avengers flicks are grossing highly.
I did not enjoy this movie. It was written cheaply to appeal to the youngest demographic of viewers without making any attempt to entertain older viewers like the first two Despicable Me movies did. It was actually the first time I almost fell asleep watching a movie in a theatre. And yet, it still made money. Of course, it did. That's the only reason it was made.
The Minions are great side characters, but not good main ones.
It underachieved when compared to its predecessor, Skyfall, in pretty much every way, but it was still an entertaining action movie nonetheless and a guaranteed box office success.
Yet another box office victory for Daniel Craig. Not as much as Skyfall, but still a lot.
I would have loved to see this movie make it to $1.5 billion, even if only to dethrone Frozen as the highest-grossing animated movie.
I was afraid that after IV, the series would feel redundant with V and lose the interest of its fans. Thankfully, that didn't happen. It was a hit with critics and audiences alike.
It's odd to see a movie make over $600 million and still be called a box office disappointment. But, to be fair, it was the lowest-grossing installment of the franchise, not exactly how a franchise is meant to end.
The movie made over $600 million and got an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. No matter the results, this movie should consider itself a winner.
