There may not be a more democratic way to see what movies people were interested in throughout 2015 than search results. It should be a strong indicator of the things that movie fans wanted to read about. Google has released their list of the most searched movies this year, and while most on the list won’t be surprising -- they were all successful films this year -- their order doesn’t match the box office totals.
Half of the Top 10 box office successes don’t even makethis list, while one of the films wasn’t even from this year. Check out the most searched for films of 2015. Are your choices on here?
10. Mad Max: Fury Road
Box Office Totals: $153,636,354 (Domestic)
"As crazy, thrilling, gorgeous and awesome as anyone could really hope, and guaranteed to be one of the best big-screen spectacles of the year."
Box Office Totals: $336,033,085
"In the end, Minions’ annoying tendencies are ultimately more than made up for by a luscious aesthetic, fast-paced energy, and plain old-fashioned silliness that you can’t help but fall for."
8. Avengers: Age of Ultron
Box Office Totals: $459,005,868
"Joss Whedon understands what makes these dysfunctional heroes tick, and there’s an immeasurable delight that comes with seeing them in action, together, on the big screen."
7. Inside Out
Box Office Totals: $356,461,711
"Inside Out has the exact same kind of old school Pixar magic that turned the company into the biggest modern name in animated feature films. It’s a perfect addition to the ever-growing legacy. It’s a phenomenal, touching and special piece of art, and fittingly a mind-blowing and emotional experience."
6. Pitch Perfect 2
Box Office Totals: $184,296,230
"I found this sequel to be fun, goofy and an overall crowd-pleaser. When it comes to prospective initiates, though, Pitch Perfect 2 might be a tough sell."
5. Furious 7
Box Office Totals: $353,007,020
"You're never given a milliseconds rest, and the entire blockbuster unfolds like an elongated music video to the most mainstream song you've never heard."
4. 50 Shades of Grey
Box Office Totals: $166,167,230
"Done well, Fifty Shades Of Grey could have introduced a mainstream audience to the intriguing world of BDSM...Instead Fifty Shades Of Grey never verges on the complex, and as a result is both painfully lame and tediously simplistic."
3. Straight Outta Compton
Box Office Totals: $161,197,785
"There’s a lot of story that needed to be pushed out in two-and-a-half hours, but rushing through the material leaves little opportunity to explore more emotionally charged moments in these men’s lives. You can tell, despite its faults, that audiences will easily invest themselves in this story."
2. American Sniper
Box Office Totals: $350,126,372
"[T]he longer you wear American Sniper, the better it fits. Eastwood doesn’t flinch from the horrifying acts of war that took place during the Iraq War. But the movie shortchanges Kyle’s blood relatives in favor of the 'family' he fought and died for in the military."
1. Jurassic World
Box Office Totals: $652,270,625
"It’s not exceptional in any specific way, but it satisfies as a fun summer blockbuster that will get audiences excited to see dinosaurs on the big screen again. For what it’s worth, it’s one of the best Jurassic Park movies we’ve seen."
