Last week we covered the worst performing films of the year, so today we look at the other side of the coin at the highest grossing films of the year.

With the worst films of the year, occasionally there's a disconnect between box office performance and critical acclaim, as some films that fail to live up to financial expectations were fairly well reviewed by critics. The opposite rings true for some of the highest grossing films of the year, a couple of which will likely end up on some critics' "Worst Of" lists and have low Rotten Tomotoes scores (percentage of overall professional reviews that are positive).

Below we have the list of the ten highest grossing films for 2016, noting their budget, worldwide box office total, Rotten Tomatoes score, and any records set worth noting. As you'll see, it was a big year for Disney, with five of their films on the list, four of which took the top four spots. Animated films were also big moneymakers, with 2016 being the first year more than one animated film broke $1 billion worldwide.
