2013 Box Office: “Gatsby,” “Croods” “Oz” and “World War Z” crack the top 20

Blockbusters by the score dominated the box office of 2013, sequels — “Iron Man,” “Star Trek,” “Despicable Me” and “Monsters University” and “Hunger Games” sequels dominated. “Grownups 2,” an Wizard of Oz prequel, “Fast & Furious 6” or whatever it is, a Superman reboot — “brand names” did well. “Lone Ranger” did not.

But original fare like the still-earning “Gravity,” “World War Z” and “The Croods” and “The Heat”, “The Conjuring” and “Identity Thief” and “We’re the Millers” made a mark.

“Frozen” will surpass Pixar’s “Monsters University” by this weekend and become Disney’s big earner for the year, but “Despicable Me 2”: will still end of $75 million ahead of it, when all is said and done.

Look down the list. “Mud” cracked the Top 100. “Blue Jasmine” did a fraction of what Woody Allen’s best performers have earned.

    Love seeing “Mud” on the list. I was also a big fan of “World War Z” and “The Conjuring” as we’ll.
