These are the highest-grossing movies of 2019

The results are in.

The list of the highest-grossing movies of 2019 has been revealed.

Every film in the top 20 of the list has grossed more than $300,000 at the box office across the year.

The list, which is correct as of December 1, and therefore doesn’t include the likes of Jumanji 2 and Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, unsurprisingly has Avengers: Endgame in the top slot, as it is also the highest-grossing movie of all time.

The Marvel film has grossed over 2 billion dollars worldwide ($2,797,800,564), according to figures published by Box Office Mojo, with $858,373,000 of that figure coming inside the United States.

Avengers: Endgame

An NME review of Avengers: Endgame called it “the best comic book movie ever”, writing: “There really is very little that could be improved about Endgame. There’s certainly no more that could be thrown at it. Whether your heart belongs to the original team or one of the newbies, you’ll see them get their time to shine.

“You will almost certainly cry. Probably more than once. Is it the best comic-book movie ever? The Dark Knight could give it a very good fight, but Endgame has more fighters on its team. It might just win.”

Following it in second place is the Beyoncé-starring Lion King remake, which has grossed $1,656,309,419.

Also in the top ten are Joker (#7), which was only released in October and has already become the most profitable comic book movie ever, as well as the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time.
