Summer Box Office Power Rankings 2015: ‘Jurassic World’ Towers Above All

By most conventional measures in North America, the “Summer Box Office Season” runs from the first weekend in May to Labor Day Weekend. Now that Labor Day Weekend 2015 has come and gone, we can at last bring you our inaugural Summer Box Office Power Rankings, showing which summer movies scored best on Monkeys Fighting Robots as well as with other critics nationwide and which fared best when it came to raking in the bucks!

By default, the chart is sorted by Rotten Tomatoes percentage, but you can use the arrows at the top of each column to sort by title, studio, grosses, or by Rating Score, the score either of our resident critics, King Felix or Dewey Singleton, gave in their reviews. Each of the scores is a link to that particular critic’s review, as well, so if you see a film with a score that you just can’t believe, click on it to get the score details.

So what does it all mean, aside from the fair guesses that the folks at Universal and Disney must be pretty happy with how the summer has gone, while Sony and Warner Bros. must be scratching their heads and wondering where things went wrong? Tell us in a comment what you take away from this – we want to know!
