Nagini Shree |Jan 03, 2019

Superhero films, popcorn movies and summer blockbusters continue to dominate the film market thanks to their wide appeal. Not surprisingly Avengers: Infinity War was the highest earner in 2018.

2018 has been a fabulous year for Hollywood filmmakers, with many broke records at the box office. Which films reign supreme? And which have sneakily made bank? It comes as no surprise that Marvel superheroes film Avengers: Infinity War was the highest-grossing film in 2018.

Anyway, here are the biggest movies of the year.

1. Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers smash! Infinity War has been the biggest Hollywood film so far with  67 characters. Promising as a culmination of every origin story, direct sequel and mash-up that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has produced over 10 years of MCU storylines. The movie ended its box office at just over 2 billion dollar internationally. And it has become the fourth highest-grossing movie of all time.

2. Black Panther

“Black Panther” became the winner in North America, and one of three movies to ever hit $700 million at the domestic box office and the third-highest-grossing film of all time in the States. Roping in a largely black cast, a beautiful fictional technopolis, and spectacular action sequences, Black Panther broke box office records and shattered a myth of movies rooted in black culture. It earned 1.34 billion dollars worldwide.

3. Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom

The sequel to Jurassic World did not place #1 like its predecessor did, but Fallen Kingdom still turned in a phenomenal performance and earned almost as much as its predecessor's with 1.30 billion dollars worldwide. Watching the giant prehistoric beast destroy never gets boring and odds. Fallen Kingdom‘s box office performance might also indicate that a franchise like this is kind of too big to fail, as it performed quite well despite receiving much more mixed reviews than the first Jurassic World.

4. Incredibles 2

After nearly 15 years waiting, the sequel for Pixar's superhero comedy The Incredibles was released. The hit Incredibles 2 wasted no time climbing this list. The Brad Bird-directed film has proved that not only Marvel or DC brand could produce superhero blockbusters. Incredibles 2 earned 1.24 billion at the box office, outperforming people's expectations.

5. Venom

While many people doubted about the potential success of Venom without connection to Spider-Man, these doubt turned out nonsense when Venom smashed the past record just in the opening week. Its impressive performance proved that people loved Hardy’s take on the character, if not anything else. Venom earned 855 million dollars.

6. Mission: Impossible – Fallout

The sixth instalment of the spy-action hero which saw Tom Cruise's returning seemed as fresh as ever.  The series proved to do better and better.

7. Deadpool 2

While Deadpool 2 didn't gain such a success in breaking its predecessor's record for highest R-rated domestic opening weekend, it still succeeded in outpacing the first movie worldwide, earning more than $300 million in the opening week and ended the box office run with 735.6 million dollars. This franchise brought about fame for Ryan Reynolds.

8. Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody 3

The Bryan Singer's biopic of Queen may have received mixed critics, but the audiences all over the world have been rocked by it. It grossed 668.6 million dollars worldwide.

9. Ant-Man and the Wasp

A relatively dull MCU film after the giant project Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp was not a massive hit but was not a bomb either. Audiences still loved it and it earned more than 622 million dollars.

10. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald


Despite getting a bad mark on Rotten Tomatoes, Fantastic Beasts 2 doesn't seem to be having too hard a time drawing fans into theatres.  The Crimes of Grindelwald has earned over $600 million worldwide, turning a profit even when compared to the film's extremely high budget.
