2014 wasn’t really good for movies, but fortunately movie buffs had a lot to look forward to this year. Turns out that 2015 saw plenty of amazing and highest grossing movies. Of course, we couldn’t bring in all of them for you. Hence, we have picked the top ten of the lot. Grab some popcorn and read away, and do let us know your favourite film in the comments below.
1 Jurassic world($652M)
There were two main key elements which made this movie, one of the highest grossing movies of 2015. Firstly, Chris Pratt and the second one was the fact that you just couldn’t watch Dinosaurs eating people from the comfort of your home. You just could not! You had to hit the theatres to watch this event film in all its glory.
2 Avengers: Age of Ultron($459M)
The last Avengers made over $1.5 billion and when the Avengers 2 trailer hit the screens, people went bonkers. When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) suddenly activates the dormant peace-keeping program, things go terribly wrong. This demands the rest of the team to reassemble and battle it out with Ultron. Also, this movie brings in two mysterious additions to the franchise.
3 Inside out($356M)
This amazing and super entertaining movie was directed by Pete Doctor. The story of a little girl called Riley, who is trying to adjust in a new city and school while the emotions in her head are trying to dictate her mood is pretty hilarious to watch. The voice artists have done total justice to the emotions as well as the main lead.
4 Furious 7($350M)
This movie had to rope in the Fast and Furious franchise fans. Also, the emotional quotient of it being the beloved Paul Walker’s last ride had to get the fans flocking in to watch the movie. RIP Paul Walker, you will always be loved.
Kids around the globe went crazy over these adorable and strange yellow creatures from the movie Despicable Me.In fact, they are considered one of the most popular animated characters created in the past few decades. Although, critics were sceptical of whether Minions could do well on their own, turns out they ruled the box office and the movie became one of the highest grossing movies of 2015.
6 Hunger games: Mockingjay – Part 2($254M)
Well, the first part didn’t do quite well at the box office and many fans were displeased about splitting the story into parts. But, it looks like people loved the second part after all, so did we. Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) teams up with his friends to free the war-torn Panem and also to assassinate President Snow, who is obsessed with the idea of destroying Kantiss.
7 The Martian($223M)
This wonderful movie had a heart-warming story of an American astronaut (Mark Watney) who gets stranded on Mars and has to come up with strategies to survive on the red planet. People loved The Martian and the timing for the release couldn’t have been more perfect, as NASA found water on Mars.
It’s no surprise that the age old classic Cinderella made $201 M as kids love good animated fairytales. Walt Disney pictures have always been great with Fantasy and Romance. The young Ella has to live with the tyrannical step mother and selfish step sisters and put up with their cruelty towards her, all the while trying to be kind. All’s well that ends well as she meets her Prince Charming and can hope for a happily ever after.
9 Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation ($195M)
Personally, I loved this movie of all the highest grossing movies this year. IMF gets disbanded but that doesn’t stop the ever looming troubles, does it?The ever charming Tom Cruise is on a secret mission to find a new threat ‘the Syndicate’. He and his team join Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), a disavowed British agent to solve this impossible seeming mission.
Who doesn’t love a good James Bond movie? Spectre sure did go well with the fans. James Bond (Daniel Craig) ventures into Mexico and Rome because of a cryptic message from the past. He meets the beautiful widow (Monica Bellucci) of an infamous criminal and also uncovers a secret organization ‘Spectre’. He embarks on a journey to find the daughter of an old nemesis to protect her, and while doing so, he discovers that he is somehow connected to his enemy (Christoph Waltz).
