The following is an overview of events in 2007 in film, including the highest-grossing films, award ceremonies and festivals, a list of films released and notable deaths. The highest-grossing film of the year was ''Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End'', which was just ahead of ''Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix''. 2007 is often considered one of the greatest years for film in the 21st century. This would the last year in which no film grossed at least $1 billion at the worldwide box office until 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the theatrical releases of many films.

Evaluation of the year

Many have considered 2007 to be one of the greatest years for film in the 21st century. In his article from April 18, 2017, which highlighted the best movies of 2007, critic Mark Allison of ''Den of Geek'' said, "2007 must surely be remembered as one of the finest years in English-language film-making, quite possibly the best of this century so far. Like 1939, 1976, or 1994, it was one of those years in which a succession of veritable classics came into being. So many, in fact, that some of the best examples were cruelly overlooked by the hype machine of the day." He also emphasized, "If 2007 proves anything, it’s that classic films aren’t just a relic of ages past; they’re being made all around us. I can’t wait to see what we’re watching in another ten years’ time." Critic Craig Johnson from the film review and movie list website ''Taste of Cinema'' said in an article from December 16, 2014, "For one glorious year, it (2007) was like the 1970’s all over again. Smart characters were using their brains as weapons. Movie stars were challenging themselves with tough roles. Punches were not pulled. Happy endings were not guaranteed. There was a parade of intelligent movies, seemingly made for adults to watch while the kids were watching Transformers".
