It's official, Iron Man 3 has nabbed the top spot as the biggest movie of 2013. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ke1Y3P9D0Bc Beating Despicable Me 2 and Fast & Furious 6 to the punch, Marvel's RDJ smash raked in over $1.2 billion this year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwXbtZXjbVE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKi5XoeTN0k Even more impressive, when you add up all of Iron Man's earnings - taking into account all three Iron Man films plus The Avengers - he's scored more than $3.8 billion in box office revenue. This makes Iron Man the biggest earning cinematic superhero of all time.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOrNdBpGMv8 Just to compare, all the Batman movies, including the Tim Burton, Joel Schumacher and Christopher Nolan incarnations culminate a sum of $3.7 billion, while the quartet of Spider-Man films boast $3.2 billion. Superman's big screen outings have been notably less successful, totting up just over $1.5 billion in ticket sales. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1T__uN5xmC0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oX9ZT3RbYE4 Chiming in at fourth place, is The Hunger Games: Catching Fire which made $770 million in 2013 beating its predecessor's profit by $80 million. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAzGXqJSDJ8 Pixar's movie of the year was Monsters University, which came in fifth, grossing $743 million to beat the original Monster's Inc by $200 million. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODePHkWSg-U Man of Steel managed to somewhat redeem its previously floptastic Superman franchise by earning a hugely respectable $662 million, $270 million more than 2006's Superman Returns. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6DJcgm3wNY Unsurprisingly, and arguably quite depressingly, only four of 2013's 20 highest-grossing films were original rather than sequels or based on books, comics or existing intellectual properties. The most successful 'original' movie was the stellar film, Gravity pulling in $652 million, while The CroodsPacific Rim and magical flick Now You See Me were the only other films on the list unable to rely on brand-name recognition.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgGPTa7-vlE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBdiFU6DgpE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5guMumPFBag http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzJNYYkkhzc However we can expect a sequel of the latter to be made; Now You See Me had a $75 million budget and managed to turn that into a $351 million profit, so it stands to reason that Lionsgate would want director Louis Leterrier back on side next year. Here's the full list of 2013's top 20 highest-grossing movies: 1. Iron Man 3 - $1,215,439,994 2. Despicable Me 2 - $918,573,535 3. Fast & Furious 6 - $788,679,850 4. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - $771,484,011 5. Monsters University - $743,559,607 6. Man of Steel - $662,845,518 7. Gravity - $652,394,288 8. Thor: The Dark World - $627,858,622 9. The Croods - $587,204,668 10. World War Z - $540,007,876 11. Oz the Great and Powerful - $493,311,825 12. Star Trek Into Darkness - $467,365,246 13. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug - $426,244,000 14. The Wolverine - $414,828,246 15. Pacific Rim - $407,602,906 16. GI Joe: Retaliation - $375,740,705 17. Frozen - $363,012,773 18. Now You See Me - $351,723,989 19. The Hangover Part III - $351,000,072 20. The Great Gatsby - $348,840,419 http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
