Other sources put its earnings at $2 million,[50] which may suggest the higher figure is the worldwide rental, given the confusion over international figures during this period.[51]. On January 13, The Hollywood Reporter announced that "Aquaman" had become the first DC superhero movie to make one billion dollars at the box office. After just under three weeks in theaters, Disney's remake of "The Lion King" crossed $1 billion dollars in total box-office gross. The 2001 film "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" was the latest to join the list after it was rereleased in movie theaters in China. The 21st century has seen an increasing dependence on franchises and adaptations, with the box-office dominance of films based on pre-existing intellectual property at record levels.[42]. And how many of them are Star Wars? "Transformers," "The Dark Knight," and "Pirates of the Caribbean" are three franchises which each have two movies in the billion dollar club — and you can add "The Avengers" to that list. Audience tastes were fairly eclectic during the 20th century, but several trends did emerge. [77] Exact figures are not known, but testimony in a federal trial in 1976—about four years into the film's release—showed the film had grossed over $25 million. The film went on to break an Academy Award record by sweeping all 11 categories for which it was nominated. [58] Exact figures are not known for The Birth of a Nation, but contemporary records put its worldwide earnings at $5.2 million as of 1919.

The 2015 prequel to "Despicable Me" focused only on the overall-wearing Minions the world had come to love. [16][17] This means that it peaked at #4 at the end of its run, ahead of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, rather than at #5 as indicated by the source. An enduring staple of the franchise model is the concept of the crossover, which can be defined as "a story in which characters or concepts from two or more discrete texts or series of texts meet". Gone with the Wind is represented twice on the chart: the 1940 entry includes earnings from its staggered 1939–1942 release (roadshow/general release/second-run)[80] along with all of its revenue up to the 1961 reissue prior to losing the record to The Sound of Music in 1966; its 1971 entry—after it took back the record—includes income from the 1967 and 1971 reissues but omitting later releases.

There are four total "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies in the franchise — and two of them have joined the billion dollar club. Estimates of its total earnings are as high as $100 million. The third "Avengers" film broke the all-time world record with a $630 million opening weekend, proving the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise is stronger than ever. SWThe "first run" Star Wars grosses do not include revenue from the 1997 special-edition releases; however, the figure does include revenue from the re-releases prior to the special editions. The second installment in Universal's rebooted "Jurassic Park" trilogy had an impressive opening weekend and then quickly grossed one billion dollars after just two weeks. Ongoing weekly drops in the totals for several countries—Argentina being the worst affected—led to a drop in the overall worldwide total. Total gross revenue: $1,001,260,000 (and counting). However, theatrical box office earnings are the primary metric for trade publications in assessing the success of a film, mostly because of the availability of the data compared to sales figures for home video and broadcast rights, but also because of historical practice. Beyond Disney and Pixar animation, the Despicable Me, Shrek, and Ice Age series have met with the most success. Original release (excluding 2009 IMAX reissue): Lifetime grosses (outside U.S. & Canada): This page was last edited on 8 January 2021, at 23:41. Worldwide, it opened to over $500 million, making it the first movie to ever crack that number opening weekend. [33] The index is uniformly applied to the grosses in the chart published by Guinness World Records in 2014, beginning with the 2014 index. Published Tue, Jul 30 2019 … Variety's 'rental' amounts are often repeated, but have no basis in the reality of what the films actually earned—they are hypothetical figures conceived for comparative analysis. And unsurprisingly, five of the 19 MCU movies made the list. Clearly Vin Diesel's creative control of these action-packed movies is paying off. Films generate income from several revenue streams, including theatrical exhibition, home video, television broadcast rights, and merchandising. Almost a third of the total box-office revenue came from China alone. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is also the highest-grossing franchise, amassing over $22 billion at the box office. [7] Merchandising can be extremely lucrative too: The Lion King also sold $3 billion of merchandise,[8] while Pixar's Cars—which earned $462 million in theatrical revenues and was only a modest hit by comparison to other Pixar films[9]—generated global merchandise sales of over $8 billion in the five years after its 2006 release. It's also worth noting that all four billion-dollar movies of 2016 were made by Disney. By mid-June, "Avengers: Infinity War" became only the fourth movie to ever crack the two-billion dollar ceiling as well. [15] In view of what appears to be an aberration in the source, a previous figure is provided. [10][11] Pixar had another huge hit with Toy Story 3, which generated almost $10 billion in merchandise retail sales in addition to the $1 billion it earned at the box office.[12]. The film passed $1 billion in ticket sales in just 19 days — which means it's tied for third place in the list of fastest grossing movies alongside "Avatar" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two.". For example, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice belongs to not only the Batman and Superman franchises, but also to the DC Extended Universe, which is a shared universe. The four Avengers films and the two Frozen films are the only franchises where each installment has grossed over $1 billion. Depending on how accurate the estimates are, the 1959 remake of Ben-Hur may also have captured the record from Gone with the Wind: as of the end of 1961 it had earned $47 million worldwide,[73] and by 1963 it was trailing Gone with the Wind by just $2 million with international takings of $65 million,[74] ultimately earning $66 million from its initial release. The following directors have also all directed two films on the chart: Frank Lloyd, King Vidor, Frank Capra, Michael Curtiz, Leo McCarey, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lean, Stanley Kubrick, Guy Hamilton, Mike Nichols, William Friedkin, Peter Jackson, Gore Verbinski, and Michael Bay; Mervyn LeRoy, Ken Annakin and Robert Wise are each represented by one solo credit and one shared credit, and John Ford co-directed two films. Recently, Business Insider released a list of films that earned at least one billion dollars each. This achievement was remarkable, especially given concerns that the movie's success would be dampened after the Aurora theater shooting took place during a midnight screening of the film. Since the Cinerama corporation owned the theaters there were no rental fees for the films, meaning the studio received 100% of the box-office gross, unlike the case with most other films where the distributor typically receives less than half the gross. The success of "Toy Story 3" helped push a fourth movie into Disney's animated movie plan. [18] This means that Despicable Me 2 peaked at #19 at the end of its run, ahead of The Lion King, rather than at #20 as indicated by the source. "Rogue One" cemented its place in the "Star Wars" franchise by raking in $1 billion just 39 days after the global release. DM2Disney issued an erratum to the gross for The Lion King in May 2016, correcting its gross from $987.5 million to $968.5 million. The impressive numbers for "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" are a good indicator that the coming third film will be just as popular. Both "The Desolation of Smaug" and "Battle of the Five Armies" made around $960,000,000 each. Box office [ edit ] Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie opened to 24 theaters on March 2, 2012 and grossed $87,475 in its opening weekend, ranking at #42. The final movie of 2019 to cross the billion dollar finish line was Disney's sequel to the hit movie "Frozen" (which holds the #15 spot on this list). The studio has officially become the first to have five films gross over $1 billion in a single year, thanks to the recent news that Toy Story 4 has officially joined the billion-dollar club, making it the fourth Pixar movie ever and fifth Disney movie this year to do so. 1. Also in April 2017, Walt Disney Studios announced that its live-action remake of "Beauty and the Beast" had officially passed the $1 billion mark for global box-office sales. As of May 2018, the total box office gross worldwide is $16.7 billion dollars. [59] Its international release was delayed by World War I, and it was not released in many foreign territories until the 1920s; coupled with further re-releases in the United States, its $10 million earnings as reported by Variety in 1932 are consistent with the earlier figure. [103] The most successful shared universe in the medium of film is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a crossover between multiple superhero properties owned by Marvel Comics. Back in 2006, when the sequel to Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl" hit theaters, it took just three months for the movie to make $1 billion at the box office. But Disney's epic Marvel adventure "Avengers:Endgame" knocked it out of the top spot in the summer of 2019. The ninth episode in the "Star Wars" Skywalker saga, "The Rise of Skywalker," crossed the $1 billion mark on Tuesday, January 14. By William Penix May 26, 2016. The most successful superhero film, Avengers: Endgame, is also the highest-grossing film overall on the nominal earnings chart, and there are four films in total based on the Avengers comic books charting in the top twenty. Marvel's major endcap to its run of 22 comic-book based films broke the record for fastest movie to reach one-billion dollars in international box-office totals. The first three were "Spider-Man: Far From Home," "Avengers: Endgame," and "Captain Marvel". [23] As the motion picture industry is highly oriented towards marketing currently released films, unadjusted figures are always used in marketing campaigns so that new blockbuster films can much more easily achieve a high sales ranking, and thus be promoted as a "top film of all time",[21][28] so there is little incentive to switch to a more robust analysis from a marketing or even newsworthy point of view. The first "Avengers" movie brought together an all-star cast of comic book heroes — and Marvel's efforts were rewarded at the box office. [31] Which film is Gone with the Wind's nearest rival depends on the set of figures used: Guinness had Avatar in second place with $3 billion, while other estimates saw Titanic in the runner-up spot with first-run worldwide earnings of almost $2.9 billion at 2010 prices.[30]. The movie joined its Disney comrades "Captain Marvel," "Aladdin," "Avengers: Endgame," and "The Lion King.". [5] The Lion King (1994) earned over $2 billion in box-office and home video sales,[6] but this pales in comparison to the $8 billion earned at box offices around the world by the stage adaptation. We may only be in August, but Disney is already breaking records at the box office. [19], Another complication is release in multiple formats for which different ticket prices are charged. But the 20th anniversary international re-release included China — and the difference in ticket sales showed. And while all of those 2020 movies I listed before would have unquestionably rocked the international box office, it’s reasonable to wonder if any of them would have eclipsed the $1 billion … AESince Avengers: Endgame was released in 2019, no inflation adjustment has been applied to its gross. The 1970s saw a shift in audience tastes to high concept films, with six such films made by either George Lucas or Steven Spielberg topping the chart during the 1980s. Just over three weeks after its release date and record-breaking opening weekend, "Captain Marvel" crossed the billion-dollar mark for global box office sales. Did YOUR favorite movie make the list? Disney also enjoyed later success with films such as Frozen I and II, Zootopia, and The Lion King (with its computer-animated remake as the highest-grossing animated film), as well as its Pixar brand, of which Incredibles 2, Toy Story 3 and 4, and Finding Dory have been the best performers. [49] However, no contemporary sources provide figures for Aloma of the South Seas, so it is unclear what the $3 million figure relates to. and Avatar all increased their record grosses with re-releases.
