2013 had many, many movies. There was action, there was adventure, and there was comedy too. In fact there were over 600 movies this year in the United States. But there were three that won the title of top grossing movies of the year 2013. First, the highest grossing movie was Iron man 3. The movie had made $408,992,272. That is insane! The movie starred Robert Downey Jr., Guy Pearce, and Gwyneth Paltrow. The second highest was Hunger Games: Catching Fire. This movie had earned $408,372,775. That is also a lot of money, almost enough to tie with Iron man 2.The movie starred Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The third move was Despicable me 2. This was a more kid friendly movie than the others. It had received $367,977,905 as its gross. It’s easy to see why these movies gained so much attention and popularity. In fact I asked Joseph A., an 8th grader here in LDV if he watched any of these movies and he responded, “Yes, I saw all three and they were really cool movies!” in fact, I watched Catching fire with him and many other LDV 8th graders. Did you enjoy 2013’s top grossing movies, are you wondering about next year? I will keep you guys updated about any new and exciting movies coming out in this New Year.
