Star Wars: The Force Awakens has proven to be a record-breaking behemoth of a film. It was an incredible ride full of twists, turns, and blasters. It truly reminded us why we fell in love with Star Wars all those years ago. Everybody and their cousin went to see it, and Disney is now raking in the profits and pumping out the merchandise.
However, just because it will probably be the second-highest grossing movie of all time doesn't necessarily make it the best movie of all time. The Force Awakens had a lot of factors that weighed in to making it perform as well as it did. For example, Star Wars is one of the most beloved franchises in history, and since its inception all those years ago, nobody has forgotten what a cinematic masterpiece the original was. Then, to finally have the sequel we've been waiting decades for (as in, a good one) just made audiences flock to the theaters. Not only that, but because the film is as good as it is, it only helped sell it to even the most skeptical of critics.
Now, this year alone, there are plenty of movies that are set to be big in scope. No, they won't dethrone Star Wars. However, they will arguably be better movies (whether you agree with me or not). As a matter of fact, there are 10 upcoming billion dollar movies that I believe will be better than Star Wars.
10 Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice
8 Captain America: Civil War
7 Finding Dory
5 The Jungle Book
4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
3 Suicide Squad
2 Independence Day: Resurgence
1 10 Cloverfield Lane
Whether 10 Cloverfield Lane is set to be an actual follow-up to Cloverfield or not, it's going to be a great hit. From the little we've seen, there are so many questions that I'm tempted to go see the film just to satisfy my curiosity. It looks to be thoughtful, mind-bending, and full of terrifying moments. It could end up being bad, but it has some of the best marketing I've seen for a movie in my lifetime, and that alone tells you that the makers are doing something right. I don't doubt they'll handle that movie very well.
