10 highest grossing films in 2013, and ‘Iron Man 3’ topped the list.


I think there are few more movies last year that I wished to watch before moving on with many anticipated films to be released this year. Now, let us see which movies of 2013 gained the most in box-office.

‘Iron Man 3’ which is said could be the last instalment in ‘Iron Man’ stand-alone superhero film franchise generated massive popularity, and hence pulling in 1.215 billion dollar, making it the highest grossing film of the year 2013, and overall, the 5th highest grossing film of all-time. This is not surprising, as superhero movies recently proven to be very successful and appealing to movie-goers. It is also the 16th film to pass the 1-billion dollar mark, and it is the only film released in 2013 that successfully reached the milestone. But I don’t really like this movie that much compared to some other notable superhero movies. Anyway, congratulation to ‘Iron Man 3’ for becoming the champion in box-office last year.

Here below is the complete list of the…

Top 10 highest grossing films in 2013:

1. Iron Man 3 – 1.215 billion.

2. Despicable Me 2 – 0.954 billion.

3. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – 0.854 billion. *

4. The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug – 0.835 billion. *

5. Fast And Furious 6 – 0.788 billion.

6. Frozen – 0.767 billion. * (reached 1.112 billion as of April 2014, jumped to second place)

7. Monsters University – 0.743 billion.

8. Gravity – 0.677 billion.

9. Man Of Steel – 0.668 billion.

10. Thor: The Dark World – 0.632 billion.

(Note: The film with the star indication in the end indicates that it is still running in theatres worldwide and its total gross will increase.)

Ahh, I watched all the movies in this top 10 list. Looking from this list, it appears that superhero movies remain the favourites (3 is in top 10). Animated movies are also highly popular last year with 3 making the list too. Last but not least, we saw also that sequels (which are usually produced due to the success of their predecessors) effectively gained interest of movie-goers again as 7 in this top 10 list are sequels. As of now, the top 6 films in this list made it to the top 50 grossing films of all-time. And out of these top 10 films, the one that had my highest rating would be ‘Gravity’ starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney which is also the hot favourite in the upcoming BAFTA and Academy Awards where it received huge number of nominations. On the other hand, the original 1993’s ‘Jurassic Park’ is re-released in 3D last year in conjunction with its 20th anniversary, and that made it to become the 17th film to cross the 1-billion mark with final grossing of 1.029 billion. Couldn’t believe this classic movie has been 20 years old already.

For 2014, movies that I think could stand a high chance to enter this top 10 list for its year are ‘The Lego Movie’, ‘Robocop’, ‘300: Rise Of An Empire’, ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, ‘Rio 2’, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’, ‘Godzilla’, ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’, ‘Maleficent’, ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’, ‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’, ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’, ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’, ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’, ‘The Hobbit: There And Back Again’. I already listed 15 potential movies that will score big in box office this year and these are also the ones that I’m looking forward to watch this year.

  1. The story tells of a research base in Antarctica,
    where twelve men encounter a violent alien able to take
    on the shape of any creature it kills. With the push of a button,
    you can lower your television from the ceiling or raise
    it from the floor or a cabinet. Perhaps a surprising inclusion to this
    list, Jurassic Park is actually one of the best science fiction films because it effortlessly explores a whole range of ideas from
    the power of nature to the inevitable fallibility of
    any system as well as the ethics of science.

  2. These fashion trends have all happened at different times
    where people can simply copy their favorite celebrities after
    watching them on TV or going out to the movies. From there on out it just gets more complicated and Jackie, as usual, has to think quick on his feet.
    Despite the fact that the director had a very small budget,
    the film was a worldwide success.
