2016 has lots of big movies on tap, but the year's top-grossing film could come down to a battle between two universes.

Last year was a huge one for movies. More films crossed the $1 billion mark than ever before, and worldwide ticket sales reached an all-time record at more than $38 billion. But with that success in the rearview mirror, attention is already turning to whether 2016's slate will be able to top 2015's record achievements. Beating last year's records is no small feat, but 2016's stacked lineup of likely blockbusters means there's a good chance that this will be the biggest year for movies ever.

Click through the following presentation to learn about the 10 biggest potential blockbusters of 2016 and the two films that could battle it out for the top spot.
