10 highest grossing movies of 2007


#1

I’ve only watched Spider-Man but nor the rest. People seem to like sequels.



1. Spider-Man 3

Total Gross: $336,530,303

Spidey’s third spin shattered the wall-crawler’s own previous box office records, grabbing the biggest opening weekend of all time.



2. Shrek the Third

Total Gross: $321,012,359

The green one returned to reclaim his crown, drawing the largest opening weekend crowd ever for an animated movie.



3. Transformers

Total Gross: $319,071,806

Autobots and Decepticons waged battle to break out as the biggest non-sequel moneymaker of the year. Naturally, a sequel is in the works.



4. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

Total Gross: $309,420,425

The third Pirate installment looted less box office booty than last year’s “Dead Man’s Chest,” but still plundered the highest worldwide gross of 2007.



5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Total Gross: $292,004,738

Harry Potter’s fifth year at Hogwarts made the series one of the most-sucessful movie franchises of all time – second only to Star Wars.



6. The Bourne Ultimatum

Total Gross: $227,471,070

Matt Damon’s third turn as Jason Bourne beat out James Bond, Mission: Impossible and Austin Powers as the top spy movie of all time.



7. 300

Total Gross: $210,614,939

In a bulging battlefield of sequels, the mighty Spartans held their own, conquering the box office with the biggest spring opening ever.



8. Ratatouille

Total Gross: $206,445,654

While not standing quite as tall Pixar’s previous features, this rat tale still cooked up big numbers as the biggest G-rated movie of the year.



9. The Simpsons Movie

Total Gross: $183,132,370

Propelled by a devoted fan base, TV’s favorite family landed in the top 10 – a 2-D powerhouse in a sea of computer-generated spectacles.



10. Wild Hogs

Total Gross: $168,273,550

Defying all expectations, this biker comedy managed to beat out big franchises like “Die Hard,” “Rush Hour” and “Fantastic Four.”


#2

Ooh great, more fucking money to Michael Gay. That’s just jolly.


#3

ah, I’ve seen one of those. I’m so ashamed.



EDIT: actually there is one movie I thing could be very good; The Bourne Ultimatum. And The Simpson isn’t probably all bad either.


#4

I’ve only seen Spider-man 3 and The Simpsons Movie out of those. I feel pretty good for not watching the rest of that crap films in that crap list.


#5

I wanna watch PotC 3, but I think I should watch part 2 first because I have not seen it since it was in the theatres, and both parts are about 3 hours long - and I cannot stand to watch Keira’s and Orlando’s crappy acting for such a long time :-X


#6

I’ve seen them all except The Bourne Ultimatum, Shrek and Wild Hogs.

Spier-Man 3 was the only one I didn’t like.


#7

Half those movies are pieces of shit. Where did Grindhouse place? Perhaps in the 7,986th spot? :’(


#8

I’ve seen PotC3 and The Simpsons Movie.

I’ll wish I’ve never watched PotC3, what pointless, boring crap.

>:(


#9

I’ve seen The Simpsons Movie and The Bourne Ultimatum. First one was ok, other one is total crap :-X


#10

I saw Spider Man -3 which was completely awful. I only saw it because the first two were great and Sam Raimi is one my favorite filmmakers.



The Simpsons Movie - a bit disappointed with the running time and story.



300 - bootleg version. I HATE ZACH SNYDER!



Transformers - on demand. I was bored so…it was crap.


#11

Out of those I have seen:



Spiderman 3 - 2/10

Transformers - 5/10 (only for the action)

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End - 6/10 (overly long, but superior to Dead Man’s Chest)

300 - 8/10

The Simpsons Movie - 8/10





My Top 7 films for 2007 (haven’t seen very many films this year at all, haha):

Death Proof - 9/10

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford - 9/10

Atonement - 9/10

It’s absolutely fucking awesome. I would never go watch something as high brow as that in my life, but my friend dragged me to it, and in the end I loved it more than he did. The cinema was full of old people, one of them told me to quiet down as I was whispering during the opening scene, haha. Gotta love it. Extremely impressed with almost everything, especially the long shot and acting from James McAvoy.

#17

1. Spider-Man 3

Never saw a spider man movie…should I do a marathon or something? :stuck_out_tongue:



2. Shrek the Third

I have seen this one, wasn’t as funny as the first two, but has some funny parts :slight_smile:



3. Transformers

I won’t see this.



4. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

I actually did a marathon of these movies in theaters…I was literally sick at the end…I did it cause I love Depp.



5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Haven’t seen this, but a lot of people say it’s the best movie of the Potter thing…



6. The Bourne Ultimatum

I like Matt Damon…and liked the first one…this was alright…



7. 300

Seen it. It looks pretty good and sometimes you need some cheap fun :stuck_out_tongue:



8. Ratatouille

I love pixar and its short movie intro’s are hilarious!!



9. The Simpsons Movie

Seen it too. Has some fun moments :stuck_out_tongue:



10. Wild Hogs

Really…just NO.


#18

1. Spider-Man 3 - I rented this for my roommates. I watched it here and there, in and out of the room sort of thing. I didn’t really like what I saw.



2. Shrek the Third - I watched this because I was hungover and I wanted to watch something stupid that I wasn’t looking forward to seeing (because I wasn’t going to give it the attention a good movie deserves). I don’t like any of the Shrek movies, and I didn’t like this one.



3. Transformers - Saw 40 minutes, and I didn’t care about what ever was going to happen, so I stopped watching.



4. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End - I have to admit, I enjoy these movies, sort off. They often do make me cringe, especially ANY scene with Orlanda Bloom (I can’t stand his face OR his acting), and this one had more cringe worthy scenes then the last two had, for me anyway. Of course, Johnny makes these movies, and I enjoy them because of his performances, and the performances of a few other characters.



5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - I’ve seen EVERY Harry Potter film in theaters. And no, it’s not because I’ve read a single book or enjoy the films, its that some of my friends are huge dorks who drag me to these things. I for one am a fan of dorks, but here I want to draw the line, I just can’t say no to friends…



6. The Bourne Ultimatum - Haven’t seen it.



7. 300 - Watched it on two separate occasions, because I feel asleep the first time. I thought visually it was pretty, but thats all I liked. I felt a lot of the acting was terrible, and the action scenes were really boring.



8. Ratatouille - I have 3 pet rats, and like most people who also have rats at pets, I had to see this movie. It was cute. I didn’t LOVE it, but I enjoyed it, and I liked that they cast rats in a nicer light (because if you’ve ever met a pet rat, they are probably the sweetest small pet you can own. It’s like having a tiny, smarter and more independent dog.)



9. The Simpsons Movie - I enjoyed it.



10. Wild Hogs - TIM ALLEN = Fuck no.

She is smoking hot but her sexiness was used better in that Two and a Half Men episode she starred in. Didn’t take advantage of her looks at all in this which I thought was weird for a film like this.


#20

She looked drugged up during the whole movie, the robots did a better acting job.
