If you did nothing but read headlines over the past year, you might conclude that 2013 was the year of the huge box-office flop. The truth is, while there were quite a few high-profile financial disasters at the theaters last year, there were also a lot of movies that did quite well. Just which movies those were, though, might come as something of a surprise. First of all, if nothing else, 2013 was the year of the animated movie. Three of the year's top ten highest-grossing movies—three of the top six, actually—were animated films aimed at general audiences.
