The animation has a before and after this filmwhich exceeds the photorealism that we had seen a few years earlier in The life of Pi. The film is still a remake of the 1994 versionwith multiple elements of Hamlet, but with a quality that is even scary.

Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens (2015) (2.07 billion)
When a group like Disney takes over lucasfilmYou know they have big plans on their hands. After the acquisition, the group wasted no time in announcing that Star Wars would return to the big screen. For a long time, we were bombarded with many trailers, all designed to arouse the nostalgia that we carry inside, and in all of us, subtly camouflaging that the protagonist, in this case, would be female.
Many were cold with this film, because they considered that the original films had been thrown in excess, and they made that more than a sequel, this new trilogy had tints of reboot. Others simply did not understand how Disney could place a villain as absurd as Kylo Ren. However, the movie was entertaining and we were all left wanting more. The unknown who was King, the character played by Daisy Ridley flooded Internet forums with thousands of theories. And the soundtrack of our dearest John Williams It was without a doubt the best part of the film. The move went very well for Disney, as it became the highest grossing Star Wars movie of all.
Avengers: Endgame (2019) (2.8 billion)
Luckily for the fans of the saga, we only had to wait a year from infinity war until end gamewhich, by the way, was originally going to be called Avengers: Infinity War 2. It was shot alongside its predecessor, and became the second most expensive movie in historysecond only to Pirates of the Caribbean: Sailing in mysterious waters (2011).
in solo 11 days, endgame had tied at the box office with infinity war. Where were the people who had disappeared after Thanos’ snap? How were the remaining superheroes going to stop him? Will the disappeared return? We have no doubt that people rushed to the movies to get the answers and not get some good spoilers, making Endgame in Disney’s biggest hit in historyand the second highest grossing film of all time behind Avatarwhich he did not surpass by just 50 million dollars.
