5) Venom

The movie starring Tom Hardy tells the story of one of Spider-Man's enemies. Among the spectators, it had a great reception. It had a somewhat low budget for films of this level, with a total of 140 million dollars according to the web portal HobbyConsolas. Since its premiere on October 5, it has collected 645.5 million dollars, according to Box Office Mojo. Despite its high ticket sales, Venom was frowned upon by critics, as it was considered a film that failed to stand out in the fields it promised (humor, superhero action, and some terror). However, the good performance of Tom Hardy is the most resizable from Venom, according to Engadget.

 

4) The Incredibles 2

Fourteen years after the premiere of The Incredibles Disney premiered the sequel of the family of superheroes. It managed to generate 1,241 million dollars at the box office, according to figures from Box Office Mojo, and far exceeded the budget for the creation of the film, which was 200 million according to Hypertext. The critics received the film positively, considered it a delight of visual effects and a plot that meets the same elements that made its predecessor triumph: a family of superheroes who must deal with the daily problems of any family. The film repeated the success of its first part, said the newspaper El Confidencial.

After the success of the first part in 2015, Universal Pictures premiered the second part with Chris Patt and Bryce Howard again as part of the cast. According to the Europapress newspaper, this second part of Jurassic World had a budget of 260 million dollars. The collection of this film reached the figures of 1,304 million dollars, according to Box Office Mojo. Inclusively, the second part of Jurassic World is considered by critics as the best sequel to the saga in terms of enjoyment, with an action that does not take long to start and does not become repetitive. Also manages to make people feel sad about the extinction of dinosaurs, according to Espinof.

2) Black Panther

For the Marvel film produced by Disney, 200 million dollars were invested. As for the box office, Black Panther has been one of the most successful films of Marvel, as it raised 1.346 million dollars according to Box Office Mojo. However, this success was not achieved in the critics, who accused this new installment of overvalued Marvel, promising a lot but contributing little, although it raises an interesting plot at the beginning, then falls into a boring development with some spikes of action, what makes it another movie more than superheroes but this time with Africans, according to Espinof.

Similarly, Infinity Wars became the highest grossing of the year with 2,047 million according to Box Office Mojo. The triumph of this film also came to criticism, considered a pioneer in their production style, which also managed to fit each of the stories of superheroes who had gone to the movies in previous years, focusing on the action and leaving the stories dramatic aside, although this sometimes generates misunderstanding of some facts. Beyond that, the third installment of The Avengers is a success in every way, according to Xataka.
