The past year was a good one for the movie business. Hollywood put out some huge productions in 2022 and the studios have reaped the rewards.

Superheroes are clearly still a good investment. Some of 2022’s biggest movies at the global box office included The Batman ($770.8 million) and Thor: Love and Thunder (​​$761 million).

James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water is a more recent release and has already taken in $609.7 million, good for ninth place this year. According to the Independent, that may change as it’s projected the movie will double the current amount in the next month, which could move it all the way up to number two.

Which movies are currently sitting at the top of the heap for the year? Spoiler Alert: Congratulations are in order for Tom Cruise. Here are the top five, as of December 22, 2022.
