Highest chart position: 1
Weeks on box office: 7
2018 was another year at the US box office where Disney dominated with their Marvel franchise and Pixar hit while there was a sprinkling of Dinosaurs and a Deadpool for good measure.
The top film in the US in 2018 was the critically acclaimed Black Panther which was released in February and grossed over $700 million during its box office run.
As if that wasn't enough Disney also took the second spot of 2018 with Avengers Infinity War which was released in April and took an amazing $678 million at the US box office.
And again as if that wasn't enough for Disney they also managed the third highest grossing movie of 2018 with their Pixar studio film Incredibles 2 which was released in June and grossed over $608 million.
Universal took the 2018 number 4 slot in the US with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and despite the fact that it took over $400 million in the US it was far from the 3 Disney hits above it.
Finally on the top five hits of 2018 in the US is the Fox property Deadpool 2 which took $324 million, interestingly Fox's movie devision is about to be acquired by Disney, and the film had a second dip of the box office over the holiday period.
Disney's Marvel domination is set to continue into 2019 with more high profile releases, and despite the lack of any Star Wars movies (another Disney property) on this list the anticipation for 2019's Episode IX is already growing.
Here is the top 10 film of 2018 at the US box office.

Marvel continue their streak of number 1 films this week with Ant-Man And The Wasp taking over at the top of the UK box office on its debut week of release.
The sequel movie starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly took nearly £5 million on its debut weekend which is in the same ball park as the original movie which took just over £4 million on its debut.
Holding firm at number 2 this week is Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again which made a challenge for the top but fell just shy with £4.1 million, this brings the films total gross to £39.3 million after just 3 weeks.
The sequel is running ahead of the originals gross but that film had good longevity, time will tell if this film has the same staying power.
Mission:Impossible Fallout leap frogs Mamma Mia! To number 3 this week after its number 1 debut, the film takes a very good £2.4 million second weekend to bring the films total UK gross to £13.3 million.
The Tom Cruise franchise movie is running a predictable course laid out by the series and could well end up with a similar total gross.
Incredibles 2 is at number 4 this week with £2.3 million for a total gross of £39 million, this is far ahead of the original film but there is a 14 year gap with ticket price increases.
If you compare ticket sales then both films are running at very similar numbers to each other with about 4 million sales each.
Finishing off the top 5 is Hotel Transylvania 3 Summer Vacation which takes £1.4 million for a £7.7 million total after 2 weeks of release.
Highest total grossing movie of the week is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom with just over £40 million after 9 weeks of release.
