Best Movies of 2015

Must-See Movies for 2015

By Jenny Peters

It was quite a year for movies in 2015, as three films — "Jurassic World," "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" — muscled their way into the top 10 all-time U.S. box-office winners. Plus, these movies — along with "Furious 7" and "Minions" — each grossed more than a billion dollars worldwide for the first time in history.

Sequels were also big in 2015, reinforcing Hollywood's prevailing idea that a sure thing is usually better for the bottom line than taking a new creative leap. But happily, there was room at the cash register for some creativity to shine, which is why you'll find GAYOT's list of the Best Movies of 2015  to be a mix of original, imaginative films that should not be missed.
