Top 10 Money Making Movies of 2008

Posted by: PuppetMaster

Take a look back at the films of 2008 and which were money makers, its an impressive list of films! From Nielson we have the final numbers on the Top 10 Grossing films of 2008. For a change I can say that most of the films that made this list are very much deserving with few exceptions.

It is of course important to keep in mind that by the end of the year these numbers will very likely change drastically. The data does not include any holiday Box Office numbers and the Holidays are a HUGE draw for movie goers. As it stands right now though here are the Top 10 Money Makers of 2008

1 The Dark Knight Warner Bros. $530,540,881
2 Iron Man Paramount $318,313,199
3 Indiana Jones Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Paramount $317,023,851
4 Hancock Sony $227,946,274
5 Wall-E Disney $223,704,223
6 Kung Fu Panda Paramount $215,434,591
7 Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa Paramount $165,653,852
8 Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears A Who Fox $154,529,439
9 Sex and the City Warner Bros. $152,647,258
10 Quantum of Solace Sony $151,620,134

Dark Knight, Iron Man and Hancock were all fun comic book flicks that I enjoyed immensely. Hancock was a bit over rated but still a fun action comedy with a hero twist. Wall-E goes without saying is one of the best films I have seen in a VERY long time. It is a must buy!

Horton Hears a Who was 'ok' but did not live up to the magic of Wall E. I passed on Sex and the City since I am the wrong demographic and as for Quantum of Solace I was quite frankly not impressed with the last film and felt the new film lacked the magic from what I saw... of the original bonds. Last but not least there is Indiana Jones 4 which although it was action packed and fast paced for me did not live up to the magic of the original. On this list which are your favs?
