Top 5 Movies in 2023

1. Barbie

With a gross of $636,190,846 and 60,416,984 tickets having been sold, Barbie has claimed to be in the top 5 movies for 2023. The movie has also led to something  unique happening in theaters: people dressed up in pink to see the film. 

2. The Super Mario Bros. Movie

The movie has earned a gross of $574,934,330 and a total of 54,599,651 tickets being sold. Since the film was released, many memes, illustrations, and hashtags have been spread all through social media since the film’s release.


3. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse 

The film features some of the best voice acting, a variety of beautiful visuals, stunning creative animation, and well-directed storytelling shine bright. The movie puts itself up as the best Spider-Man movie of all time, but also one of the best animated movies of all time with a gross of $381,311,319 and 36,211,901 tickets sold in total.

4. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 

James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was the much-needed boost that the franchise needed. The film restored fans’ faith in the MCU and even brought back the casual fans who had given up on the franchise entirely. James Gunn found a perfect balance of raw emotion, hilarious moments and absolute carnage that makes Vol. 3 the most memorable movie of the trilogy, and one of the best Marvel movies. The film earned a gross of $358,995,815 and had 34,092,669 tickets sold.
