Hollywood had another banner year in terms of box office. The top two movies, domestically, earned over a half a billion dollars.
What was the number one movie? It was a Marvel Comics movie, but not the one you would think.
Click through and discover the top 11 highest grossing movies of 2014.
Big Hero 6
People were surprised by the success of Big Hero 6. But, when you look at it, you shouldn’t be. It’s a Disney Animation film based on a Marvel comic that is from the team that brought us Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph. Just how much did Hiro and his team of scientific driven heroes make? Big Hero 6 made $199,933,000 in 2014.
The big guy made big money as Gareth Edwards brought the Japanese monster new life to the tune of $200,676,069 in 2014.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
There is all this talk about how they need to reboot Spider-Man and the future of Spider-Man might look different because of the lack of success of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We think that a year-end haul of $202,853,933 is a HUGE success, no?
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
It was one of our favorite movies of the year, so we could not be more thrilled that a whole ton of people agreed with us as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes left theaters with $208,545,589 million in its till.
X-Men: Days of Future Past
When a film makes $233,921,534, it might be easy to look past a little controversy. Now, if that controversy is unfounded, well then, between that and enormous profits, we can see why Bryan Singer is back for X-Men: Apocalypse after the brilliant work he did with the seventh highest grossing movie of 2014 -- X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Lots of people thought that Angelina Jolie was perfectly cast as the iconic villain from Sleeping Beauty. Maleficent doesn’t make $241,410,378 in box office receipts because that is not the case!
