The beginning of a new decade and a whole new year, which means the numbers are in, and if you’re Disney, they are magnificent.
The last decade has seen many of the most exceptional cinematic experiences brought to our theaters. And the end of the decade has people looking back on the years past. Many lists have popped up around the internet to reflect the successes of the decade.
The best of the Decade
Popular US-based, ticket selling platform Fandango took to Twitter this week to list its top five most selling movies of the last decade. It was no surprise that the entire was either a Star Wars or Marvel films, both now under the Disney banner. The top five were;
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Endgame, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Avengers: Infinity War, and Black Panther.
