Following on from a trend set two years ago, it is again Disney who sit top of the pile having scooped a domestic gross total of over $3bn (£2.3bn), the second time the studio has taken that amount domestically.
While Disney did have some flops (most notably at the hands of Solo), the help of having the three highest grossing films of the year with Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Incredibles 2 helped them have the edge.
It is the work of Universal’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom that competed with Disney, the J. A. Bayona-directed film romped to takings of $416,769,345 (£325,432) to sit in fourth place.
Below is the list of the Top 20 Grossing Films of 2018 in North America:
Black Panther – Buena Vista (Disney) – $700,059,566
Avengers: Infinity War – Buena Vista (Disney) – $678,815,482
Incredibles 2 – Buena Vista (Disney) – $608,581,744
