The Best Films of 2015

From box-office hits to art house favorites, find the best movies of 2015 on GAYOT's list.

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 Top 10 Movies of 2015 to be a mix of original, imaginative films that should not be missed.
