With sequels after sequels hitting the silver screen, 2007 has indeed been a good movie year. Whether they were comedy, drama, action, horror or romance, movies were popping up every now and then. Some were non-sequels but most of the box office hits were sequels to previous hits as well.
 
Before the year ends, let's take a look at some of the movies that made us laugh, cry, scream, shiver, freak out and at some point, pissed off. We can't list all of them but we certainly can give you the ten highest-grossing films at the box-office this year.
