No, seriously. Who was it? Dark Horizons has the top 10 highest-grossing movies of 2008, and numbers don't lie. Some of you out there saw Madagascar 2.

2008 U.S. Domestic Box-Office Top Ten

1. The Dark Knight - $530.9 million
2. Iron Man - $318.3 million
3. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - $317.0 million
4. Hancock - $227.9 million
5. Wall-E - $223.8 million
6. Kung Fu Panda - $215.4 million
7. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa - $174.9 million
8. Twilight - $167.3 million
9. Quantum of Solace - $164.3 million
10. Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! - $154.5 million

The worldwide top 10 is after the jump.

2008 Worldwide Box-Office Top Ten

1. The Dark Knight - $996.9 million
2. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - $786.6 million

Nice work, Dark Knight! But don't get too uppity: The number-one movie worldwide is still 1997's Titanic, which made $1,835,300,000. Just remember that every time you think about how cool you are, Christopher Nolan: You still got your ass whooped by a Leonardo DiCaprio tearjerker.
