'Iron Man 3' has been crowned the highest-grossing film of 2013.

The Robert Downey Jr.-starring superhero adventure took in a massive total of $1,215,439,994 at the global box office, wiping out competition from runner-up 'Despicable Me 2' with total takings of $918,573,535.

Meanwhile, the sixth instalment of racing franchise 'Fast & Furious' - which stars the late actor Paul Walker - came in third place with $788,679,850.

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' has already grossed $771,484,011 in the few weeks since its release, while animated comedy sequel 'Monsters University' rounded out the top five with $743,559,607, according to Box Office Mojo.

Blockbusters 'Man of Steel', 'Gravity', 'Thor: The Dark World', 'The Croods' and 'World War Z' completed the top ten.

It seems Downey Jr. has found a winning formula with Marvel's 'Iron Man', since his role as playboy billionaire Tony Stark has made him the best paid actor in Hollywood with estimated earnings of $75 million.

Thanks to 2012 superhero team-up movie, 'The Avengers', Iron Man has also became the highest-earning superhero on the big screen of all time, raking in a combined figure of $3.8 billion.

The top 20 highest-grossing movies of 2013 are as follows:

1. Iron Man 3 - $1,215,439,994
