Top 10 Highest Grossing Movies Of 2013 - Part 1
On 21 January 2014
As 2014 announces big movies to be released (the well-known and long awaited “X-Men: Days Of Future Past”, the “300” sequel, “300: Rise Of An Empire” - no Gerard Butler this time - [unfortunately… ], some action from Marvel with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and some Andrew Garfield in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”), we feel the need to conclude 2013 and choose the Top 10 Movies Of 2013.
On that note, here are 5 of the movies that made the most money in 2013. Feel free to comment, agree or disagree with our judgment and remember to follow us for the Top 5 Movies Of 2013. Enjoy!
10. On number 10 we have This Is The End, a Comedy/Fantasy released on 12 June 2013, staring Seth Rogen, James Franco, Emma Watson and Jonah Hill. According to the International Movie Data Base, the movie got an average of 6.9 from user reviews. With a domestic total gross of $101,470,202 and a production budget of only (compared to the following movies) $32 million, we could say Seth Rogen's movie was a hit and earned it's place here.
9. Now You See Me is our number 9, with an average of 7.3 from user reviews, a domestic total gross of $117,723,989 and a production budget of $75 million. For those who've seen it, I think we can all agree it was a pretty good movie with great actors: Morgan Freeman, Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco. If you've seen it, then you know that “the closer you look, the less you will actually see”, if not, start paying attention and watch this movie now!
8. As much as we all love Leonardo DiCaprio, his “Great Gatsby” only made it on number 8, because of its domestic total gross of $144,840,419 and an average of 7.4 from user reviews. With a production budget of $105 million, the movie presented an amazing and different world to all of us, too busy to see the beauty around us or to pursuit our true love. And for that, the extremely talented cast and the joyful music, I would give “The Great Gatsby” an Oscar with all my heart.
7. On the other hand, with a 7.1 from user reviews, World War Z managed to win a domestic total gross of $202,359,711 (just to be a little mean, probably thanks to Brad Pitt and his sparkling blonde hair). I may not be a zombi fan, but the $190 million production budget was totally worth it and made the difference between one of the best movies of 2013 and a regular apocalyptic story.
6. Thor: The Dark World didn't make it in our Top 5 as it only won a little over $200 million: as of Jan. 16, 2014, the domestic total gross was set to $204,041,762. With a production budget of $170 million and an average of 7.6 from user reviews, I think we can all agree we've enjoyed our time in the cinema, and we would go again if possible, to see Chris Hemsworth throwing that hammer and saving Natalie Portman over and over again.
