Top Films of 2017

Star Wars Last Jedi group posterBack in December of 2017 I took a look at what I thought would be the top films in the science fiction and fantasy genres, for 2017. Was I right, was I wrong? Take a look below and see how far off I was. (all amounts are in Millions of dollars)

The numbers for Actual$ is as of December 31, 2017.

 

Title Predicted Rank Actual Rank Predicted $ Actual $
Star Wars: The Last Jedi 1  1 $805 $517288
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 2 4 $350 $39040
Beauty and the Beast 3 2 $281 $504223
Justice League 4  9 $280 $22654
Spider-Man: Homecoming 5  5 $270 $33464
Wonder Woman 6  3 $246 $412166
Despicable Me 3 7  7 $243 $26522
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales 8  13 $215 $17342
Lego Batman 9  11 $215 $17639
 
Transformers: The Last Knight 10  17 $206 $13076
War for the Planet of the Apes 11  16 $191 $14744
Thor: Ragnarok 12    6 $185 $311126
Logan 13    8 $180 $22646
Coco 14 10 $180 $180
Alien: Covenant 15 21 $161 $7487
Blade Runner 2049 16 19 $150 $9258
Kong: Skull Island 17 14 $140 $16828

My biggest miscalculation went to Baby Boss, which I expected to come in at #21, but actually ranked at #12, so it should have been on the list. 

Other Surprises came in the incredible success of Wonder Woman and Beauty and the Beast, films that, while being genre catered to a more female clientele. They were incredibly successful because of it and I think A Wrinkle in Time and Mary Poppins Returns will do well in 2018 for the same reason.
