The top 10 highest-grossing films of 2022 are Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Way of Water, Jurassic World: Dominion, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Minions: The Rise of Gru, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, The Batman, Thor: Love and Thunder, Water Gate Bridge, and Moon Man.

Top Gun: Maverick has surpassed all competition to become the highest-grossing movie of 2022 and Tom Cruise’s all-time highest-grossing movie. Prior to Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise’s highest-grossing film was Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018). In addition, Top Gun: Maverick became Tom Cruise’s first $1 billion film in a 40-year career and the ninth-highest-grossing domestic film of all time in the United States.

Meanwhile, Jurassic World: Dominion, the third highest-grossing film of 2022, was announced as the final installment of the Jurassic World saga, which began in 1993. The Jurassic World saga, which started with the Jurassic Park trilogy (1993–2001) and later continued with the Jurassic World trilogy (2015–2022), is hailed as one of the most recognizable film series in history as well as a classic of the science fiction genre.

James Cameron’s highly-anticipated sequel to Avatar (2009) was finally released in December 2022 and became the second-highest-grossing film of the year. After announcing Avatar: Way of Water, Cameron disclosed that the following three Avatar films are also in production and will all hit theaters by 2028.

Interestingly, most of these highest-grossing films are sequels and tentpole films. Tentpole films are big-budget movies whose earnings are expected to compensate the studio for its less profitable movies. We can surmise that studios have been relying more on tentpole films to draw audiences to the theaters because of the pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the film industry due to social distancing measures. As a result, box office sales have since dwindled ever since 2020. 2021 and 2022 have seen sales rise again as social distancing measures have loosened worldwide but still not reached the same box office sales volume as in pre-pandemic years.

Thus, Real Research, an online survey app, has launched a survey on 2022’s highest-grossing movies worldwide to find out the public’s opinion on 2022’s highest-grossing films, tentpole movies, and the lasting effects of the pandemic on the film industry.
