These are the movies people viewed the most on IMDb. The site looked at the page views of more than 250 million monthly unique visitors to its site worldwide to determine the most popular films on its list.

Most of the movies shouldn’t be too shocking. The list is almost identical to the highest-grossing movies of the year at the box office, with a few outliers. A total of four Marvel movies make the list, including fan favourite “Deadpool 2.”

Keep reading to see the top movies on IMDb in 2018:

10. “Bohemian Rhapsody”

20th Century FoxRami Malek played Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic.

The Queen biopic wasn’t as thrilling as fans may have hoped, but the “Mr. Robot” star, Rami Malek, gave an excellent performance as Freddie Marcury.

9. “Incredibles 2”

Disney/PixarMrs. Incredible gets to take charge in the Pixar sequel while Mr. Incredible is on parent duty.

Pixar’s sequel to one of the studio’s best movies may even be better than the original with a main focus on Mrs. Incredible. It’s one of the best animated movies of the year.

8. “Ready Player One”

Warner Bros.Tye Sheridan in ‘Ready Player One.’

The adaptation of the best-selling book about a future dystopia makes some major changes from its source material, but the movie is mostly better for them.

7. “Mission: Impossible — Fallout”

Paramount PicturesTom Cruise’s sixth outing as Ethan Hunt had the franchise’s largest opening ever.

This one’s worth a watch for its many action sequences. For the franchise’s sixth movie, Tom Cruise learned how to pilot a helicopter for scenes near the film’s end and even jumped out of a plane. The daredevil who loves to do his own stunts also broke his ankle while filming.

6. “Venom”

Sony PicturesThe movie may not have been great, but that didn’t stop it from grossing over $US700 million at the box office.

It didn’t matter if Sony’s “Spider-Man” spin-off received terrible reviews. The movie became an instant must-see spectacle for Tom Hardy’s zany performance as the alien symbiote and the film’s poor dialogue made it a riot for fans to enjoy.

5. “The Meg”

Warner Bros.Forget cars. ‘The Meg’ was all about Jason Statham vs. one giant shark.

Like “Venom,” “The Meg” is not an amazing movie by any standards, but it’s so ridiculous that you have to smile watching Jason Statham go toe-to-toe with a massive shark. Plus, the young girl in the movie is a scene-stealer.

4. “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”

IMDb/Universal PicturesOnce again, Chris Pratt and the dinosaurs were king.

There wasn’t enough of Jeff Goldblum, and a twist late in the film was a bit weird. Overall, it was a fun and silly sequel with a lot of ridiculous moments, but all of the dinosaur action you needed.

3. “Deadpool 2”

Fox/MarvelRyan Reynolds is back for seconds, and it’s just as good as the first time.

If Ryan Reynolds’ second outing as the Merc with a mouth wasn’t better than the first, then it came very close. The addition of Josh Brolin’s “X-Men” character, Cable, was perfect casting. The sequel had some very funny moments and incredible cameos.

2. “Black Panther”

Walt Disney Studios Motion PicturesNot only was ‘Black Panther’ one of the year’s best movies, but it also has a Grammy-nominated soundtrack for album of the year.

“Black Panther” wasn’t just one of the best superhero movies of 2018, it is also one of the best movies of the year. The performances from Michael B. Jordan’s antihero, Killmonger, and Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa helped it earn a Golden Globes best picture nod.

1. “Avengers: Infinity War”

Marvel‘Infinity War’ is the highest-grossing movie of 2018 so far.

No surprise here.

Avengers: Infinity War” was the event movie of the summer. It joined together the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, the Avengers, Black Panther, and more as the fate of the world was literally at stake from Thanos (Josh Brolin). This was the culmination of more than 20 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it left most audiences speechless its opening weekend.
