13. Real Steel - $85,468,508

Real Steel is another boxing movie on our list, albeit a robot boxing movie. Hugh Jackman takes the lead in this father-son redemption story that aims for heartwarming, but mostly hits visually cool. It opened to mixed reviews — Roger Ebert’s positive review called it a “real movie” and surprised him given his low expectations, which is a pretty nice burn, actually — but it took the number one box office slot and did well internationally, especially in Jackman’s native Australia.
