When gauntlet-wearing Thanos snapped his fingers in Avengers: Infinity War, he not only wiped out half of the population in the universe, he also decimated the competition at the box-office. According to the Cinematograph Film Exhibitors Association, Avengers: Infinity War was the No.1 movie in Singapore last year, pulling in $16.22 mil.
The top position is held for the fourth straight year by Marvel Studios; Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, and Thor: Ragnarok were the champs of 2015, 2016 and 2017, respectively. Crazy Rich Asians (No. 6, $7.3 mil) is the only entry in the top 10 that is neither a sequel nor a comic book adaptation.
Deadpool 2 is the highest M18-grosser with $5.29 mil (in comparison, the PG13 version, Once Upon a Deadpool made a paltry $109,000) while Incredibles 2 ruled the animation category with $6.62 mil. The Taiwanese sob-fest More Than Blue took home $1.8 mil, making it the most popular Asian movie.
Elsewhere, Jack Neo’s Wonderful! Liang Xi Mei The Movie is the top local flick ($1.76 mil). Based on a '90s character Neo played on TV in the ‘90s, Wonderful! might not have been as big as Neo’s Ah Boys to Men series (2017’s Ah Boys to Men 4 earned $5.05 mil), but it was big enough to beat out Solo: A Star Wars Story.
With the exception of the top 10, we’re just going to rank the rest of the Top 100 movies without revealing their earnings. (Numbers can be sooo numbing.) But this we will tell you: The 100th movie made about $249,000. No spoilers: read on and find out more about it. So how many of the Top 100 movies have you seen? And how many movies you've seen didn't make it to the list? (Hey, where's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri? Where's The Big Day?)
Globally, Avengers: Infinity War reigned supreme with US$2.04 billion, followed by Black Panther ($1.35 billion), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (US$1.30 billion), Incredibles 2 (US$1.24 billion), Aquaman (US$1.092 billion), Venom (US$855.8 million), Bohemian Rhapsody (US$817.6 million), Mission: Impossible — Fallout (US$791.1 million), Deadpool 2 (US$761.9 million) and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (US$652 million).
