Won the battle. American Sniper was just named the highest-grossing movie of 2014.

The Oscar-nominated film edged out The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 to nab the top spot this past weekend. Starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller, American Sniper currently boasts more than $337.2 million in domestic box office totals. Sitting in the No. 2 spot, Mockingjay brought in $336.96 million.

American Sniper's numbers are just going to grow as the war movie is still in theaters worldwide. In addition to its impressive haul stateside, the talked-about flick has already made an additional $163 million abroad, for a worldwide gross of more than $500 million. 

Released on Christmas Day, American Sniper narrowly made its eligibility as a 2014 film. While much of the movie's box office income was charted in 2015, it counted $1.55 million in the final days of last year.

Based on late military sniper Chris Kyle's autobiography of the same name, American Sniper was buoyed by the six Oscar nominations it received, including Best Picture, Best Actor for star Cooper, and Best Adapted Screenplay, among others. After the nominations were announced and the film went to wide release, it held the No. 1 spot at the box office for three straight weeks. 

The year's box office chart is rounded out by Guardians of the Galaxy in third with $333.18 million, Captain America: The Winter Soldier taking fourth with $259.77 million, and The Lego Movie in the No. 5 spot with $257.76 million.
