Movies are such an important aspect of our society and over the course of cinema history, we’ve seen some massive releases on the big screen.
From the classic hits like Lord of The Rings and Harry Potter to the hits that carried my generation like those coming from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Every year has a heavy hitter both in terms of popularity and revenue.
So in the 21st century, what were the top hits from each? Below is the top movie of each year from 2023 all the way to 2001. Based solely on the film’s total worldwide box office gross as reported by Boxofficemojo.
When looking at the statistics we learn just what films people love each year, like how five of the twenty-three total listed is a Marvel movies, or how 70% of the top films from the century are action films.
Though the highest grossing doesn’t always mean the highest quality film. Of course, that’s matter of opinion, but I will be taking note of what the “second place” film was and seeing if it was better in my and the public’s opinion and the than the highest grossing.
Sadly for some zero of these films are horror and we will not be counting films that did not have a theatrical release. With that, all wrapped up which of these films is you’re favorite?
