The Top 10 Highest-Grossing Movies of 2010

By 12.27.10

It’s that time of year again, folks.  First we decorate a tree with tinsel, next we decorate WORDS AND THINGS WITH NUMBERS NEXT TO THEM!  IT’S LIST TIME, OOH WHA-AH AH-AH!  Anyway, while I busy myself compiling my ten best of 2010 list (TRY NOT TO GNAW OFF YOUR ARM IN ANTICIPATION!), here’s a more fact-y list for you to chew on, the highest-grossing films of 2010.  You know, if you’re into that kind of thing. BOOM, IT’S TIME TO GET LINEAR!

10. Clash of the Titans, $493.2 million worldwide
9. How to Train Your Dragon, $494.9 worldwide
8. Despicable Me, $539.9 million
7. Iron Man 2, $582.2 million
6. Twilight Saga: Eclipse, $693.5 million
5. Shrek Forever After: $739.8 million
4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1. $824.1
3. Inception, $825.4
2. Alice in Wonderland, $1 billion
1. Toy Story 3, $1.1 billion [via THR]

All in all, not so bad. Sure, Clash of the Titans and Twilight got in there (and Shrek 4, really?), but out of the ten, a good three or four of them were actually decent movies.  Here’s the top 10 of 2009 for comparison:

(the first number column is worldwide gross, the second one is US and Canada)

1 Avatar 20th Century Fox $2,779,404,183 $760,507,625
2 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Warner Bros. $933,959,197 $301,959,197
3 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs 20th Century Fox $886,686,280 $196,573,705
4 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen DreamWorks/Paramount $836,297,228 $402,111,870

10 The Hangover Warner Bros. $467,483,912 $277,322,503

Dare I say 2010 was better?  Yes, I predict that decades from now, your grandkids will sit cross-legged, jostling for position while you recount your stories from the days of 2010, the year things sucked less than they could have.
