The Lego Movie is sitting firmly atop the highest grossing movies of 2014 list, having raked in over $410 million. The animated film has been a huge hit with cinema goers and critics, although we’re not even half way through the year yet, there’s still time for it be knocked off the top spot.

It looks as though Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which has only been on the big screen for a couple of weeks, could easily come along and steal its crown. It’s already taken over $308 million at the box office, which sounds impressive but still leaves it at the number three spot, $16 million behind 300: Rise of an Empire. There’s still time, Captain America.

The big three may have raked in huge numbers so far, but we wonder how long they’ll hold their own as some potentially monster hits are looming on the horizon. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes out next month and there’s been serious buzz around it. The trailer is jaw-dropping and the allure of Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin is enough to draw in even those who may not have seen the first Spider-Man movie starring Andrew Garfield.

Godzilla starring Walter White? Erm, yes please! We think this one will probably do pretty well at the box office, packed with a stellar cast and what looks like spectacular special effects, hopefully this Godzilla will be an improvement on the 1998 version, which was, let’s face it, the worst ever.

You may have noticed from our previous articles, but we’re obscenely excited about Maleficent, which is due for release on May 30th. We totally recognise that just because we’re excited to see it doesn’t mean that the whole world is, but honestly, if it’s not, then it’s missing out and is really, really wrong.

The Hobbit There and Back AgainWill the final Hobbit movie knock The Lego Movie off the top spot?

It’s not due out until December, but let’s face it, it looks like that the final Hobbit movie, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, is going to absolutely destroy every thing else at the box office. All five of Peter Jackson’s other Tolkien-based movies are in the highest grossing movies of all time, not just ruling the year that they were released. The Hobbit: There and Back Again is also the final, final, final instalment, no more after this. That's it.  This is the end. There’s no more books to work off, no more hobbits, no more dragons, no more hot elves/dwarves. Yeah, we’re pretty sure that The Hobbit: There and Back Again will be the highest grossing movie of 2014, but if it isn’t we’ll eat our wizard’s hat.
