The 10 Highest Grossing Movies Of All Time

With Avatar poised to overtake Titanic as the highest earning film in the history of cinema, just thought it would be a good post to "educate" the rakyat on some Film 101. Here's the top ten list of highest earning movies in film history. You can check out the full list here.

Movie: Titanic
Year: 1997
Gross: $1,848,813,795

Titanic gave us so many memorable moments, the stupid Celine Dione song. Quotes like, "You jump, I jump." "I'm flyyying!" "I'm King of the Woooorld! "Wearing ONLY this."

And personally for me.. it was the first time I saw a naked chick. Thank you Kate Winslett. Thank you!!
Movie: Avatar
Gross: $1,662,429,598
Personally I still feel 500 Days of Summer was the best film of 2009. But Avatar is going to be the film that people will still be talking about 30 years from now. Why? Because it was a global cultural phenomenon. Because it was a breakthrough in cinema experience. It's 2001, it's Star Wars, it's one of those moments that captured the world in awe.

Movie: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Year: 2003
Gross: $1,119,110,941

Tell me you didn't go wow during the Ride of the Rohirrim. There aren't many 4 hour films that can keep an audience at the edge of their seats throughout the show. Can't wait for the Hobbit to come out.
Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Year: 2006
Gross: $1,066,179,725

WHAT? This movie beat The Dark Knight?! The only saving graces in Dead Man's Chest was.. Johnny Depp, Bill Nighy and that Kraken scene. Oh and Keira Knightley's sternum.
Movie: The Dark Knight
Year: 2008
Gross: $1,001,921,825

Kinda surprised it didn't land on number 2 or something. And I don't really need to comment on this much.. greatest crime and comic book film of all time.
Movie: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Year: 2001
Gross: $974,733,550

I'm getting...
Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
Year: 2007
Gross: $960,996,492

Really lazy..
Movie: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Year: 2007
Gross: $938,212,738
