Summer means sunshine, school vacation and movies movies movies. Studios save their biggest popcorn hits for summer, and this year it has paid off. Children’s movies have dominated, but some surprisingly grown-up films, like Inception, have performed well. We used data from Box Office Mojo to compile a list of the top 10 highest-grossing summer films at the box office worldwide.
The third Twilight movie (and the first to be released in the summer) is lagging behind the second Twilight film, New Moon, which earned $710 million at the global box office last November. Although one would expect the teen-sensation films to perform better in the summer, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Summit will release the next two movies in November of 2011 and 2012.
