Ew, Gross!

Welp, it's official! Thanks to Disney and that whole Covid-19/End Of The World thing, Bad Boys For Life is the Highest Grossing Movie Of 2020!

We truly are living in the Darkest Timeline.

After being closed all spring and summer, theaters attempted to lure moviegoers back with Warner Bros. sci-fi action film Tenet. Unfortunately for Hollywood, the public didn't feel like risking their lives to see a confusing and muddled time travel heist, and stayed away in droves. 

Tenet pulled in an anemic $41 million here in the States, which is downright embarrassing. It didn't do much better overseas, where it only raked in $243 million. 

That may sound like a lot, until you consider it cost a whopping $205 million! Due to marketing and other hidden costs, most films need to gross twice their production budget just to break even, so Tenet is a certified BOMB.

Seeing that the Tenet experiment was a colossal failure, Disney yanked its upcoming Black Widow movie from the schedule, moving it to May 2021. Other studios soon followed suit, pushing their films back to 2021 as well.

With no new product to exhibit, cineplexes were forced to shut down again. Meaning there are no more contenders for Top Grossing Film. Which is why Bad Boys For Life is the #1 contender. Oy.

Here's a look at the Top Ten Highest Grossing Films Of 2020. Note that these are all worldwide totals— they made considerably less here in the States. Holy Crap! 

What a sh*tshow of a year this turned out to be at the box office! Years from now (if there's anyone still alive), people will look at the charts and wonder what the hell happened in 2020.

And if you don't believe me, then take a glance at 2019's top money makers. At Number One was a little film called Avengers: Endgame, which raked in an astonishing $2.7 BILLION! Heck, even the tenth place film grossed nearly twice as much as 2020's top contender!

So congratulations to Bad Boys For Life as Top Grossing Film Of 2020. Heck, the way this year's going, there's a strong possibility it'll win Best Picture at the Oscars as well!
