Guess what the biggest film of 2017 is? It caused a HUGE controversy

The 2017 box office officially closed yesterday, on January 4.

For most of the year Beauty and the Beast seemed almost impossible to catch, raking in a whopping $504million in the US and $90.5million (£67million) over here.

Horror movie It was a shock global smash and Dunkirk rode a patriotic wave on both sides of the Atlantic, while Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Thor Ragnarok and Soder-Man Homecoming swelled teh Marvel coffers to overflowing.

But there was never any doubt about the biggest film of the year in a galaxy far, far away and closer to home… 

Star Wars The Last Jedi may have divided fans with some hardcore protesters demanding that is is removed from the Star Wars timeline, but it is still the top film of 2017 at the US and UK box office.

It looks unlikely to match the success of The Force Awakens and is predicted to perform surprsiingly poorly when it opens in China the is weekend, but it still pulled in an impressive $93.2million (£67.5million) in the UK, pipping Emma Watson to be the Belle of the ball.

It has already taken $544million in the US and still has weeks to run in cinemas worldwide.
