The 10 highest-grossing movies of 2023: ‘Oppenheimer’ is No. 3

by -34 Views

In the end, nothing could top “Barbie.”

Greta Gerwig’s smash hit ended the year as the highest-grossing film of 2023, having raked in more than $1.4 billion since hitting theaters in July.

It’s the first time in years that a non-sequel has topped the year-end box office. Indeed, of the 10 highest-grossing films of the year, half are part of ongoing series. “The Little Mermaid,” meanwhile, is a remake.

But the top two films, “Barbie” and No. 2 “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” are both standalone properties (for now). Christopher Nolan’s historical drama “Oppenheimer” rounded out the top three with its $951 million haul.

“I think audiences are really showing what they want are films that are a little different,” Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore, tells CNBC Make It.

After topping the 2022 box office charts with “Top Gun: Maverick” — “Avatar: The Way of Water” split its $2.3 billion box office haul between 2022 and 2023 — Tom Cruise made another appearance in the top 10 with his latest “Mission Impossible” sequel.

Marvel Studios, which in recent years has topped the year-end box office on multiple occasions with “Spider-Man” and “Avengers” films, claimed two spots in the top 10.

These are the highest-grossing films released in 2023, according to Comscore data pulled on December 18.
