As follow up to our post in early fall listing the top ten films of 2016 at the Dutch box office through August, the following are the top ten grossing films for the full year ending December 31st.

Interesting to note…

  • The number 1 film of the year in Holland was released the same day we published our previous 2016 Holland movie ranking (September 15th)
  • 2016 marks the second year in a row that the number 1 film at the Dutch box office was set in England
  • 5 of the top 10 movies of 2016 were either animated or utilized CGI technology
  • 7 of the top 10 movies were sequels, prequels or otherwise related to a previously released film
  • The movie which ranked number 1 at the Dutch box office for 2016, came in at number 95 at the American box office
  • Disney had the most films in the Dutch box office top ten (4), followed by Universal (3) and Warner Bros (2)
  • Two of the top 10 films in Holland were released on the same date (August 4th)
  • Comparison: a movie earning $11.5 million (which is what the number 1 film at the 2016 Dutch box office earned) would have the equivalent ranking of 125th top grosser at the American box office and the 36th top grosser at the British box office

 

Here is the ranking of the top ten grossing movies in the Netherlands for 2016 (currency in millions US$)…

  1. Bridget Jones’s Baby – $11.5
