5. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a 2013 American science fiction adventure film based on Suzanne Collins’ novel, Catching Fire, the second installment in The Hunger Games trilogy. The film is the sequel to The Hunger Games, and the second installment in The Hunger Games film series, produced and distributed by Lionsgate.

Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss Everdeen along with Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, Willow Shields, and Paula Malcomson also reprising their roles.

Months prior to the first film’s release, Lionsgate greenlit the second film and Gary Ross, director of the first film, was expected to return as director. However, on April 10, 2012, he announced his departure from the project due to the tight and fixed production and on May 3, Francis Lawrence was hired as the film’s director. Throughout July and September 2012, the film’s supporting cast was filled out, with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin, Lynn Cohen, Jena Malone, Amanda Plummer, Alan Ritchson, and Meta Golding brought in to portray key roles. Filming began September 10, 2012 in and around metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia before moving to Hawaii and New Zealand.

The film opened to critical acclaim and strong commercial success worldwide, and as of December 13, 2013 has earned over $680 million worldwide against its $130–140 million budget.

6. Man Of Steel

Total Gross: $662M

Man of Steel is a superhero action film and the reboot of the Super Man film series. The film was distributed by Warner Bros Pictures. The film was played on 4.2k theaters and it grossed more than $116 million in its opening.

7. Gravity

Total Gross: $631M

Gravity’s box office tally stands at $129 million after just 11 days, a total Time Warner’s  (NYSE: TWX  ) Warner Bros must be ecstatic about. That box office figure by itself won’t shatter any records. For example, The Avengers made $381 million at the domestic box office across its first 11 days. But Gravity shares similarities to Avatar, a movie that had an opening weekend box office far from Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters, but rode stunning visuals and positive word of mouth to a prolonged run of huge weekends. By the time it left theaters, Avatar was the highest grossing film in movie history.

While Gravity won’t break Avatar’s all-time box office record, it is set to follow the same strategy and become Hollywood’s most intriguing film of 2013. Also, it has ignited talk of whether or not 3D film-making can make a comeback.

8. Thor: The Dark World

Total Gross:$611M

With Iron Man 3 cementing its place as the highest grossing movie of 2013 (thus far), it’s now up to Thor: The Dark World to continue Marvel’s dominance in Phase Two.Now under the direction of Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), Thor: The Dark World finds the god of thunder at the mercy of Malekith (Christopher Eccleston), who wants nothing more than to plunge the Nine Realms into darkness. To help put a stop to Malekith’s plan, Thor will enlist the help of Jane Foster and a reluctant Loki, jumpstarting that complicated relationship once again.

Several early reviews for Thor 2 have praised the film’s scope and sense of humor, calling it a vast improvement over the first film. Whether or not it will be able to match or exceed its predecessor’s $65 million opening, however, will say a lot about the strength of Marvel’s non-Iron Man franchises in a post-Avengers world.

9. The Croods

Total Gross: $587 M

The Croods is a three-dimension animated film produced by DreamWorks Animation. Distributed by 20th Century Fox studio, this film grossed total of $583 million.

10. World War Z

Total Gross: $540M
