This year Hollywood didn’t quite manage to be at the top of its game, with the number of flops easily outnumbering the Blockbusters. But, as always, there were a handful of movies that were a cut above the rest, and while quality comes down to a matter of opinion, there's no denying the quantity that these five films raked in in terms of box office revenue.

5. Furious 7

The seventh installment in the Fast and the Furious franchise had a very sentimental value because it delivered the last performance of actor Paul Walker (who died in a tragic car accident in the middle of filming). The film has grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing film in the franchise after just twelve days, the second-highest-grossing film of 2015, and the fifth-highest-grossing film of all time.

4. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

The fourth and final installment in The Hunger Games film series (and the second of two films based on the novel Mockingjay) comes in at number 4.

The film has been the number 1 movie in the United States for four weekends in a row, delivering an amazing and satisfying conclusion to one of the best movie franchise in recent history, one that introduced us to one of the most iconic female leading characters ever: Katniss Everdeen -- which is a nice change in a world filled with male-driven movies and heroes.

Despite being released less than a month ago, Mockingjay - Part 2 has impressively grossed over $570 million worldwide.

3. Inside Out

Once again, Pixar delivered another stellar film that's up there with Finding Nemo and Toy Story (in terms of originality, this is the only film on the list that isn’t a sequel or remake).

The film grossed $90.4 million in its first weekend — the highest opening for an original title. It has accumulated over $851 million in worldwide box office revenue.

2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Even though the film isn’t out until Friday 18th of December, with only 12 days in 2015, there's no doubt that all year long people all over the world have been talking about the newest film of one of the most iconic movie franchises of all-time.

Expect this film to break a lot of records and even set new ones, as critics are already praising the film, a seemingly vast improvement over the previous prequels.

1. Jurassic World.

The number one movie of the year is the fourth entry in the Jurassic Park franchise, and, without a doubt, the best sequel of the franchise.

After a record-breaking opening weekend that saw the film gross $500 million worldwide, it performed better than the competition to become the highest grossing film of the year. Overall, Jurassic World has generated over $1.6 billion in box office revenue, standing as the third highest-grossing film of all-time (as well as the highest-grossing film of 2015).
