The 15 Highest-Grossing Movies Of 2013


gravity sandra bullock

Space flicks, superheroes, and sequels made it a big year at the box office.

We've compiled the 15 highest-grossing movies of the year worldwide, which made a combined $9.7 billion at theaters.

We're aware there are still a few films coming out Christmas day, but we'll be surprised if "The Wolf of Wall Street" takes in $400 million+ by the end of the year.

"The Hobbit" sequel "The Desolation of Smaug" will definitely make more money before the year's end, so we'll adjust accordingly.

We know "Iron Man" tops the list. Let's see who else joins Robert Downey Jr.'s Marvel man.

15. "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug": $403.8 million

Studio: Warner Bros.
Release date: December 13
Estimated budget:  $225 million
Domestic gross: $127.5 million

The sequel to last year's "An Unexpected Journey" may be bringing in plenty of box-office dollars, but it's off to a slower than the first film in the three-part trilogy ($127.5 million vs. $150 million domestically).

14. "Pacific Rim": $407.6 million

Studio: Warner Bros.
Release date: July 12
Estimated budget: $190 million
Domestic gross: $101.8 million 

The monsters vs. robots movie from Guillermo del Toro may have underperformed in the states, but it made up for that overseas. A sequel is already in works for the film which ended up being the costliest sci-fi flick of the year.

13. "The Wolverine": $414.8 million

Studio: 20th Century Fox
Release date: July 26
Estimated budget: $120 million
Domestic gross: $132.6 million 

Forget Iron Man. Collective reviews even went so far as to call it the best superhero film of the summer. Still, Hugh Jackman's return as the Marvel slasher didn't perform nearly as well as the Wolverine Origins film from 2009 opening weekend. Instead, "The Wolverine" became another example of a film that took off abroad at theaters.
