Key Takeaways

Sequels Rule

The top four highest grossing films of 2024 so far are all follow-up films. Inside Out 2, Dune Part Two and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire are sequels, while Kung Fu Panda 4 is, you guessed it, the fourth film in the franchise. Half of the top 20 highest grossing films are follow-ups. Both Inside Out 2 and Kung Fu Panda 4 were released more than eight years after their preceding film. 

America & China

Every film in the top 20 highest grossing films of 2024 was created by either America or China. Of the 20, five are Chinese while 15 are American.
