FML Brackets: Best of 2016

Patrick Reardon · December 18, 2016 · 8:42 pm PST

Last week evil took down good as Darth Vader beat Han Solo in our extremely competitive Star Wars character bracket. This week we wrap up 2016 with our best of the year bracket.

Now when we say "best," we mean the top grossing movies of the year. After all, we're a site that revolves around box office grosses. All of the films listed here factored into Fantasy Movie League at some point over the past year.

This is a 64-movie bracket with the top 64 grossing movies released in 2016. Seeding is based entirely on box office results. The top four grossing films get #1 seeds, the next four highest grossing films get #2 seeds, and so forth.

I made a special exception for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and gave it a #1 seed. Although it just opened (earning an estimated $155m+) I'm quite confident when all is said it done it will be one of the top four grossing films of 2016 (if not the top grossing film overall).

Have at it. Cast your votes, spread the word and make a case for your favorites in the chatter.

Thanks to everyone who voted in all of our brackets this year. The FML Brackets will be back in early 2017.
