Hollywood has been releasing more movies with each passing year now that the average of released movies per year is the highest in history these days. There are several movies that make it big but there are only a few that break box office records. Most of all, the most obvious thing is that there are very few sequels that hit it big at the box office. Sequel or a freshly released title, in the list of the top grossing movies for the year 2013, we look at titles that smashed box office records of all time. So if you are planning on downloading a few torrents yourself, this can be your guidance list so read on for a well-researched list of the top 10 highest grossing movies Hollywood came out in 2013, even though the year isn’t over by long.
10. Hangover 3
We start with Hangover 3 as the first listed movie on our list of the highest grossing movies for the year 2013. The movie generated a profit of $111 million since its release and is obviously a sequel to The Hangover and The Hangover part II. Although the film does not anything that is far different from what was already present in the prequels and frankly, seemed like a slight rip off of The Roadtrip, but given the success it got on the box office only suffices to prove that people like the familiar.
9. Oz: The Great and Powerful
Next on our list of the top grossing films for the year 2013 is the much awaited OZ: The great and powerful. This movie generated a profit of around $234 million and was considered to be a pretty remake of the classic fairytale. Sam Raimi is the one who is responsible for bringing this movie to life. Some people compare the grossed amount to Alice in wonderland while forgetting that Alice had Johnny Depp and that is a huge factor.
8. Fast and the Furious 6
Next on our list of the movies that smashed records at the box office is the next installment from the Fast and the Furious series. This movie grossed around $235 although it was filled with a lot of unbelievable action sequences but that’s exactly what this genre caters too right?
7. Despicable Me 2
Grossing well over $225 million, the next film on our list of the top grossing films for the year 2013 is none other than the sequel to the highly appreciated and much loved, Despicable Me. That movie was adored so much that the concept of creating tiny little minion robots for people to keep for themselves actually floated around for a while. The success of the sequel proves that another one will be more than welcome with kids, elders, siblings, and whoever else attending the show.
6. Monsters University
The next movie on our list is another animated classic this time by Pixar. We had Monsters Inc. and then we had Monsters Inc. 2, but we now have the official prequel, which is the way thing normally go with sequels and prequels. Wazowski and Sulley have hit back with Monsters University which grossed a whopping $237 million.
5. Star Trek: Into Darkness
We have the sequel to J.J. Abrams Star Trek next on our list of the top grossing films in Hollywood for the year 2013. This sequel is a huge hit judging by the profits that amount to $222 million. The hit can be attributed to the beyond awesome reviews and the fact that we have Benedict Cumberbatch.
4. The Great Gatsby
Next on the list is The Great Gatsby, the movie that grossed over $142 million at the box office proving the directors correct when they decided to shoot the movie. And Warner Brothers made a proactive decision of shifting the release of the movie from Christmas to May!
3. Man of Steel
Next on our list of the top grossing films in Hollywood for the year 2013 is the next installment in the Superman franchise. This new film, which grossed $280 million can be called the rebound from the previous installment of the man of steel and it appears to be doing very well for itself- a fact that can also be attributed to the unceremonious rise of the Dark Knight!
2. World War Z
Second last on our list of the top grossing movies for the year 2013 is World War Z. Catering to the genres of action, drama, horror, and sci-fi, this hit grossed $177 million and over at the box office making it one of the most successful movies of this year directed by Marc Forster.
1. Iron Man 3
We next have the movie that was one of the most awaited movies of all time. Iron Man 3, based on one of the character of The Avengers (but was obviously a standalone franchise before the avengers as well), made a profit of $406 million at the Hollywood box office. It proves that having Shane Black behind the camera was quite an idea and it paid well!
