Before the 2000s, Only one movie ever crossed the Billion Dollar mark. Today, the best movie franchises are taken over by Disney and these new movies don’t shy away from making billions of dollars for their makers. Let’s find about the highest-grossing movies of all time.
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Box office: $ 1.41 billion
Disney in 2009, bought Marvel Entertainment for four billion dollars. The year before, superhero Iron Man proved with his movie that any investment in Marvel Entertainment would prove worthy.
Even though Superman and Batman of DC Comics still have to work a lot to gain that status but the Avengers dominate the cinema landscape.
Fast & Furious 7
Box office: $1.516 billion
Cool cars, hot actresses and brothers for life: The simple formula has made this Vin Diesel’s action series the global cinema cracker. He regularly leaves behind prestigious Hollywood productions to shoot in China and the Arab world.
The 7th part of the franchise almost defeated the Avengers’ debut and went on to become the highest-grossing movie of the Fast and Furious Franchise.
Marvel’s The Avengers
Box office: $ 1.52 Billion
Few films have been expected by fans as long and burning as this one. In 2012, Marvel and Disney opened a new chapter in their superhero franchise.
For the first time, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Thor, Hulk and Iron Man fought side by side. With such widespread fanbase, it had to become the highest-grossing movie of 2012.
The Lion King (2019)
Box Office: $1.60 billion
The new Lion King movie is a remake of the original 1994 Super Blockbuster. As for as the animation is considered, the new Lion King is far superior to the original flick however it has nothing more to add and even though it has become the 7th highest-grossing movie ever, the original will be much closer to the heart forever.
Jurassic World 2015
Box office: $ 1.67 billion
This success should have surprised even the movie makers a little. The revival of the Dino classic started in 2015 on a worldwide triumphal march. The lead role has been played by actor Chris Pratt.
He had become a fan favourite the year before with Marvel’s retro-cool Guardians of the Galaxy came out.
Avengers – Infinity War
Box office: $ 2.04 billion
In 2018, the third instalment of the successful Avenger series hit theatres. And it was also the highest-grossing movie in 2018. Once again, the Marvel Universe proves to be a reliable money machine.
