As the 2014 year has officially come to an end, I thought it would be nice to take a look at the highest grossing movies of 2014. How many of the top 10 grossing films had a superhero character? The answer is six. How many films in the top 30 grossing are not based on an existing property (adaptation, remake, reboot...etc) or a sequel? Only four! Hit the jump and you can find the top 50 grossing films of the year.
