Hollywood has created numerous entertaining films over the years across almost every genre. However, there are none that turned out to be quite as magnificent and fascinating as those with a sci-fi label. Sci-fi movies have also proved to be big money-makers at the box office. To celebrate the sci-fi genre, we take a look at the highest-grossing sci-fi movies of the decade:
Avengers: Endgame which came out last year was one of the most anticipated releases after Infinity War. The movie was released in 2019 and is the highest grosser on the list collecting $2,797 worldwide.
The American space opera film directed by JJ Abrams is the second highest-grossing film collecting $2.068 billion worldwide. The film revolves around the rise of a new order destined to destroy the New Republic three decades after the Empire's defeat.
Defected stormtrooper Finn and the scavenger Rey must find a way to stop them and find the missing Luke, who happens to be the last Jedi survivor.
This is the third-highest grosser in the list and the second Avengers film on the list. The movie had a box office collection of $2,0483 billion. Avengers: Infinity War sees the Avengers and their allies come together and sacrifice everything in order to defeat the powerful Thanos before he puts an end to the universe.
Jurassic World, which was also released in 2015, is fourth on the list with a worldwide gross of $1.672 billion. The film takes place on the fictional Central American island of Isla Nublar where a theme park of cloned dinosaurs has been in operation for around a decade.
