We’re about halfway through the year of 2018, so we figured we’d look at the top grossing movies so far.
If you’ve been following your blockbuster movies, you shouldn’t be too surprised by the ones that came out on top. In fact, chances are that you’ve seen all of them.
It’s been a big year for Disney with their Marvel movies Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther coming out as the highest and second highest grossing films in the box office worldwide. Infinity War recently crossed the $2 billion mark at the box office to becomes the fourth highest grossing movie of all time.
While Disney’s Solo: A Star Wars Story failed to make the top ten of the worldwide box office, it did make it into the top 5 for domestic grosses. Interestingly, Black Panther actually beat Infinity War in the domestic box office to become the highest grossing movie of 2018 so far in the US.
In both the domestic grosses and worldwide, Deadpool 2 was the third highest grossing. Ready Player One was the fourth highest grossing film worldwide while A Quiet Place was fourth in the domestic BO.
Given the size of the Asian market, it is unsurprising that Chinese films made up three spots in the top ten worldwide grosses. War film Operation Red Sea was the fifth highest grossing film while buddy cop movie Detective Chinatown 2 came up sixth and Chinese-Hong Kong adventure film Monster Hunt 2 came in ninth place.
