So, how did you spend your 2016? Well, statistically speaking, you spent a whole lot of it online, and a whole lot of that time googling things that interested you. Now, exactly what unusual things you may have made inquiries into quite rightly deserves to remain entirely private, but that hasn't stopped Google from anonymously collating all of our collective search histories into a cutesy, end-of-year report. Which, it just so happens, includes a movie-related "top five." And, as it turns out:

That, at least, is what Google has now informed us, with 's proving to be the year's most searched movie, with ' coming in at number two. The third spot, intriguingly, is filled by the -starring , before regular service resumes with 's at number four, and 's at number five.

In other words? We really, really, really liked searching for information about superhero movies this year. That, and Leo DiCaprio fighting a bear. Though, since both and the iPhone 7 managed to beat potentially world-ending President-elect in the overall list, it's possible that doesn't speak quite as highly of us as we might hope.

Want more on the inadvertent impact of Google on celebrities? Never fear, we've got you covered right here.

In the meantime, though, what do you think? What have you most enjoyed searching for on the internet this year? Let us know below!
