We know “The Avengers” and “The Dark Knight Rises” are among some of the highest-grossing films of the year; however, were they the most popular online?Google rounded up the most searched films of the year, accounting for those with the largest volume of searches.
We’re surprised by some of the films left off the list (primarily “The Amazing Spider-Man”).
Though Batman and Iron Man receive some love, one thing’s for certain. The Internet loved Channing Tatum.
It only makes sense that the final 'Twilight' film ('Breaking Dawn Part 2) would garner a lot of interest from its Twihard fans.
The film saw the largest opening weekend of any film in the franchise earning $340.9 million worldwide.
One of the most viral movies of the year -- Warner Bros. was able to enlist fans all over the world to unlock the film's trailer in under 24 hours -- is only the fifth most searched movie.
Gotham's knight has earned more than $1 billion worldwide.
The Marvel team easily reached every demographic, whereas a scary-sounding man in a mask breaking the Batman appealed to slightly more mature audiences.
When the Avengers team assembled, it resulted in more than $1.5 billion in worldwide ticket sales.
The only book which was as popular as E.L. James' 50 Shades of Grey trilogy was 'The Hunger Games' series.
According to the New York Times, when 'Hunger Games' began production there were 9.6 million books in circulation. In August, Suzanne Collins' three-book series overtook the Harry Potter books to become the best-selling series on Amazon.
