Usually on "Box Office Knock Out," we look ahead to the movies that are hitting theaters.  But to end the year, we're looking back at the top ten highest grossing films for 2011.

It wasn't exactly a great year for originality, seeing as how every movie in the top ten was a sequel, an adaptation, or both.  There are two Marvel Comics movies on the list -- the third, "X-Men: First Class," came in at number 14 for the year.  You'll also find a pair of part twos, a three, a four and a five in the rankings, along with the first half of the final chapter of one epic franchise, and the ultimate conclusion to another.  In fact, the highest earning movie with a screenplay not based on another source was "Bridesmaids," which is ranked at #12.
