movies were almost guaranteed to take top spot at the box office every year. After all, A New Hope

came, with the first movie of the prequel trilogy captivating the world after the saga had been put on hold for 16 years.

However, since The Phantom Menace
came out, Star Wars
hasn't always scooped the gold medal. Just 10 movies were able to beat the Skywalker saga (not including spin-offs Rogue One
) during their run on the big screen.
