A lot happened in 2010. We had the World Cup in South Africa (Spain won!), the economic collapse (fun times), Tiger Woods’ girlfriends started talking, and Paris Hilton got caught with cocaine. No wait it was chewing gum! No, it was definitely cocaine. Even though the economy was in trouble people evidently still bought tickets and went to the movies because the top grossing films (this is based on domestic sales – overseas these flicks made out like gangbusters too) made a whole lot of dough.
Of course, thought-provoking, challenging films didn’t quite make the cut and the top five flicks are all big-budget Hollywood brands, but what can you do? It says a lot about who goes to the movies: mainly, kids. So let’s see which mega blockbusters made the cut.
