Top Movies of 2018


2018 has been an overwhelming and positive year for movies. Hit films such as A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Deadpool 2 all stunned audiences and made a tremendous impact. Unfortunately, these outstanding titles did not make the top three according to AMC. However, two out of the three this year have even been at the top of the list of the highest-grossing movies ever. For those unaware, the term “grossing” refers to the collection of all of a film’s earnings from revenue sources. Now sit back and enjoy the show as you learn about the top three movies of 2018; as you read, you might find some spoilers.

Number 3: Incredibles 2

Taking third place is Incredibles 2, an animated movie sequel to The Incredibles. The original film is about a family of superheroes forced to blend in with the rest of the population. While Mr. Incredible longs to return to his superhero life, he soon faces trouble and is reluctant to save the day. Incredibles 2, however, is a continuation of that idea, with baby Jack-Jack finding his powers and the family having to save the day once more. This kid-friendly action-packed comedic adventure soon became the highest-grossing animated film according to AMC.

Number 2: Avengers: Infinity War

Second place goes to Avengers: Infinity War, which is in the least bit surprising. This superhero filled Marvel movie had everyone at Sleepy talking… and making memes. The film involves the Avengers, an almighty team of heroes including Thor, Iron Man, and the Hulk, joining forces to defeat the antagonist, Thanos. Thanos sets out on a mission to capture the six “Infinity Stones” and the Avengers’ goal is to stop him before he uses them for evil. The film includes some very shocking and upsetting deaths but other than that it is worth seeing. It is even rated the fourth highest-grossing film of all time according to AMC! `

Number One: Black Panther

The winning spot this year is claimed by the one and only Black Panther. It is no surprise that another Marvel movie is at the top of the ranks. This extremely influential and action-packed film centers around a man named T’Challa, who is forced to return to his home, the African nation of Wakanda, and becomes king. T’Challa is forced to put his skills as king and as Black Panther to the test when the antagonist appears. This movie provided lots of representation and had an intensely positive impact on society. It won several awards, including an incredible ranking of the third highest-grossing movie of all time according to AMC! Thanks 2018!
