  8. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)

    Set before 1977's Star Wars — also on the list — the rebellious daughter of a scientist working for an evil empire joins a group of rebel fighters to steal the blueprints for a superweapon that can destroy planets. Read our Star Wars guide for the ideal viewing sequence.

  9. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

  10. Spider-Man 2 (2004)

    In arguably the best Spider-Man movie of all-time, Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) can't catch a break. He loses his job, his powers, and the love of his life Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst). And his best friend (James Franco) is out for Spider-Man's blood to avenge the death of his father.

  11. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

  12. Star Wars: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi (1977–83)

  13. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)

    Three decades on from the fall of the Empire, a new rising threat threatens to engulf the galaxy far, far away back into war. Standing in its way is an orphan scavenger, a defecting stormtrooper, and a new maverick pilot, with help from the old guard — some more reluctant than others.

  14. Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

    Taika Waititi rescued the standalone Thor trilogy and made the character fun with this uber-colourful and boisterous chapter in which the Asgardian god of thunder loses his famed hammer and must figure out how to save his home from the goddess of death, Hela (Cate Blanchett).
