Disney (DIS 2.14%), Fox (FOX), Viacom (NASDAQ: VIA), Comcast (CMCSA 0.88%), and Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF-A 1.83%) all earned spots on the list of the year's 10 highest-grossing movies, but two companies dominated multiplexes in 2015, and one is probably not whom you expect.

Click through the presentation below to learn which movies and companies made it big at the box office in 2015.
