Beauty and the Beast Came in Number 1!
Disney’s live-action adaptation of the popular Disney animated film and the original fairy tale written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and published in 1740. Emma Watson plays one of our favorite Disney Princesses, Belle and Dan Stevens as The Prince / Beast. The film is about a beautiful and smart young woman named Belle who was taken prisoner by a beast living in an old castle. She finds out that the castle is full of talking and living inanimate objects. She befriends the enchanted objects and the beast, and find out that they were cursed and the only way for them to return to normal is if the beast learns to love someone and becomes loved in return.
The Fate of the Furious Is To Be Number 2
The 8th installment of the highly popular franchise which started out about street racing. The Fate of the Furious is no longer about car racing and is more like any other action film. The franchise has moved further and further away from its street racing roots and is more about heists and other crimes, but adding Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson certainly made the franchise a lot more famous. In The Fate of the Furious, Dom (Vin Diesel) is forced to betray his team by a woman named Cipher (Charlize Theron) and start a string of global terrorism. The team has to stop Cipher and bring Dom home. Even though it’s no longer about street racing, it is surely entertaining and will get your blood pumping. Oh, and there’s still a lot of awesome cars.
The Minions of Despicable Me 3 Takes The 3rd Spot
Despicable Me has been a very successful and popular franchise that is loved by kids and adults alike all over the world.

He gets fired from the League, and the Minions tried to make him go back to his villainous ways but he refuses. He instead travels to Freedonia to meet his long lost twin brother, Dru. Dru tries to convinces Dru to help him become a villain but initially Gru refuses. They then form an alliance to take down a former child-star turned villain that plans to take revenge against the world.
