Box office 2017: Top 10 highest grossing movies are ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ ‘Wonder Woman,’ ‘Get Out’ …

This weekend’s box office will no doubt be dominated by Jon Watts‘ “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Marvel’s first solo flick starring Tom Holland in the trademark red costume. But before you go out and see Spidey in action, let’s take a look back at the films that have cleaned up so far at the 2017 domestic box office. (All tallies courtesy of Box Office Mojo.)

Not surprisingly, the Top 10 biggest U.S. money-makers of the year are dominated by remakes, sequels and male directors. The 2017 version of “Beauty and the Beast” (directed by Bill Condon) is by far the king of the box office with a spellbinding $503 million. That doesn’t just make it the highest grossing film of the year, but also the eighth biggest movie in the history of cinema.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” (directed by James Gunn) has raked in $384 million so far, good enough for second place on the 2017 chart. That’s $50+ million more than the original 2014 film, which suggests we’ll probably be seeing more Groot and co. in the not-too-distant future.

Comic book characters are having a great 2017, which bodes well for “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Besides “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” there’s also third-place “Wonder Woman” (directed by Patty Jenkins, the only woman on the Top 10 list) at $356 million, fourth-place “Logan” (directed by James Mangold) at $226 million, and sixth-place “The LEGO Batman Movie” (directed by Chris McKay) at $175 million.

The fifth highest-grossing movie is “The Fate of the Furious” (directed by F. Gary Gray) at $225 million. For those keeping track at home this is the eighth film in the popular guns-and-cars franchise, and its third biggest earner behind “Furious 7” (2015) at $353 and “Fast & Furious 6” (2013) at $238.

Rounding out the box office behemoths are two original movies — horror film “Get Out” (directed by Jordan Peele) and animated flick “The Boss Baby” (directed by Tom McGrath) — as well as the sequel/reboot “Kong: Skull Island” (directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts), and the fifth edition of “Pirates of the Caribbean” (directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg).
