In a year ripe with superheroes, sequels, and one last bite from the Twilight franchise, the box-office was booming in 2012.

We've taken a look at the 15 top-grossing films of the year worldwide.  

If you were a Bat in black, a Disney toon, or Kristen Stewart, the box-office bowed in your favor. 

We know "The Avengers" and "The Dark Knight Rises" were among the best performances at theaters this year. See what else joins them on the list.

15. "The Lorax": $348.8 million

Dr. Seuss' book adaptation was the first box-office surprise of the year, debuting to the third-highest March opening with $70.2 million.

14. "Taken 2": $363.4 million

Critics may not have loved Liam Neeson's return as ex-CIA agent Bryan Mills, but audiences couldn't have been more thrilled to see the sequel to the 2009 action thriller. The film opened to the third-highest October debut with $50 million.

13. "Snow White and the Huntsman": $396.4 million

Unlike Julia Roberts' "Mirror, Mirror," this Snow White had a smart marketing campaign geared toward men (This Is No Fairy Tale), plus the star power of Kristen Stewart. The film had the fourth-largest opening of the year.
