Here are the top 50 movies of the year, according to Google

Sci-fi movies and action films ruled in 2017. 

That's according to Google's ranking of the top 50 movies of the year. The annual list highlights the top 50 movies of 2017 based on the most popular content worldwide on the Google Play store. It's important to note that Google's list is not a critical ranking, but is based entirely on top sellers.

The year's hottest films included action-adventure films like "Wonder Woman," "Rogue One," and "Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2," and also left room for sci-fi movies like "Arrival" and "Life." Animated movies were popular too, scoring three of the top 10 spots. 

While almost every film came out in 2017, a few were released at the end of last year.

Our 11 Favorite Movies of 2017

Sweet, funny and a modern twist on the classic rom-com, "The Big Sick" is just about universally likable. While lighthearted, it carries a meaningful message that will ring true for parents and their adult children.

Emotionally prepare yourself before watching "The Florida Project," a top Oscar contender for the year. Poignant and aesthetically lovely, the sunny Orlando setting mirrors the cheerful energy of its young protagonist -- while contrasting the darkness of the adult world she lives in. Fingers crossed for an Oscar nom for little Brooklynn Prince, who at just 7 years old delivered one of the best performances of the year.
James and Dave Franco co-star in "The Disaster Artist," an unexpected film that leaves entire theater audiences in stitches. Whether or not you're familiar with cult classic "The Room," the bizarre real-life movie within this one, you'll be fascinated, bamboozled and quite entertained by James Franco's take on oddity filmmaker Tommy Wiseau.
"Spider-Man: Homecoming" may not go down as Marvel's most memorable movie -- but to be fair, there are a lot of them. It's fun and appropriately goofy while still packing a punch (literally and figuratively), and Tom Holland is (in our opinion) the best Spider-Man to date.

A tragic romance unlike any other painted on-screen, "Call Me By Your Name" explores the building sexual tension between two young men in 1981. In falling for the older, handsome Oliver, 17-year-old Elio finds himself longing to not only be with him but also be like him, attempting to transform his self-loathing into self-reflection.

As one of the biggest box-office hits of the year, Gal Gadot smashed superhero records with "Wonder Woman." It's a must-see for anyone who loves action, adventure and the kind of woman we all dream of calling a best friend or life partner.
Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling make an unflappable duo in "Blade Runner 2049." Note: It'll make more sense -- and carry much more weight -- for anyone who's seen the original 1982 film.
It's not out yet in theaters, but movie critics are already giving the thumbs-up to "Star Wars: The Last Jedi." After teasing us with just a glimpse of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker at the end of "The Force Awakens," the eighth installment features Luke more heavily, much to fans' satisfaction.
Who doesn't love Reese Witherspoon? "Home Again" is one of her sweetest films to date, the perfect flick for a girls' night in (or to force your husband to watch with you). Her three young male co-stars aren't bad to look at, either.
Sequels often fall flat, but "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" managed to best its predecessor -- and not just because Baby Groot is so cute. Chris Pratt's undying charisma carries the film in one of Marvel's weirdest but most fun flicks to date.
Just about everyone who's seen "Lady Bird" wants Saoirse Ronan to snag a Best Actress nomination. It's similar to "Juno "(2007) but perhaps more true-to-life and edgy, with a compelling mother-daughter story that will leave you reflecting on your own teenage years.
