2013 Bakers Dozen At The Box Office

For the 2013 US box office, movies have mostly officially closed. Only one movie is left in the box office. But it should be closing soon with the summer movie season in full swing. I covered the top dozen back in December. At the time, Frozen was just on the cusp of becoming the cultural phenomenon it would become just a month later. At the time, no one thought Frozen would make $400 million. The Hobbit was storming it's way past the $200 million mark. Unfortunately, Iron Man 3 was not able to hold on to first place. Unless there are re-releases, this is the bakers dozen of movies that made $200 million or more for the 2013 movie year.

#1 - The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (飢餓遊戲:星火燎原)

#2 - Iron Man 3 (鋼鐵人3)

#3 - Frozen (冰雪奇緣)

#4 - Despicable Me 2 (神偷奶爸2)

#5 - Man of Steel (超人:鋼鐵英雄)

#6 - Gravity (地心引力)

#7 - Monsters University (怪獸大學)

#8 - The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (哈比人:荒谷惡龍)

#9 - Fast and Furious 6 (玩命關頭6)

#10 - Oz the Great and Powerful (奧茲大帝)

#11 - Star Trek Into Darkness (闇黑無界:星際爭霸戰)

#12 - Thor: The Dark World (雷神索爾2:黑暗世界)

#13 - World War Z (末日之戰)

This was another good year for sequels and reboots. Only one third (four films) of the movies were originals. You can even argue Oz is not an entirely original concept.
