Top 10 Movies of 2014
For all you die-hard movie fans, this post is for you! As 2014 starts to wrap itself up in a neat little bow, there are a couple of films that stood out this year. Movies were a huge hit in 2014 grossing out in $8.7 billion at the box office alone! It’s no surprise with big-name franchises such as The Hunger Games, X-Men, and Transformers, to see these films breaking the top 10 list. (Way to go Jennifer Lawrence!) And of course you have Marvel’s newest breakout movie in the number 1 spot with Guardians of the Galaxy, along with its fellow Marvel companions Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 not too far behind it.
So who else broke the top 10? Check below and see!
1. Guardians of the Galaxy
2. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1
3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
4. The LEGO Movie
5. Transformers: Age of Extinction
7. X-Men: Days of Future Past
8. Dawn of the Planet Apes
9. The Amazing Spider-Man 2
10. Godzilla (2014)
Much like 2013, Marvel, Disney, and Lionsgate dominate the list of the highest grossing films at the box office, and yet only 4 of the top 10 movies are not sequels. While movie sequels aren’t exactly a new concept, they have definitely become a real trend for movie success in the past few years. Here is the list of the top 10 movies at the box office from 2013 just to compare:
1. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
2. Iron Man 3
4. Despicable Me 2
5. Man of Steel
7. Monsters University
8. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
9. Fast & Furious 6
10. Oz the Great and Powerful
Now as we look to 2015, what are we most excited to see? One of the most anticipated movies for next year is Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, along with its reboot of Fantastic Four. Films such as Terminator Genisys, and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens also have the internet all abuzz, so it should be an exciting and action packed year for movies. I for one am a huge movie-fan, and in addition to movies, I love to stay up to date with entertainment news! If you also love to keep yourself in the loop on all things movie and television I recommend you check out Entertainment Weekly, and WATCH! Magazine. (Not to mention that WATCH! is running a special for only $.99 for a one year subscription!)
