13th September 2017

This week marks a bit of a mile stone in film global grosses, Despicable Me 3 goes over $1 billion, the first of the series to do so, this means now the top 30 top global grossing movies have all grossed over $1 Billion.

The first movie to do so was Titanic back in 1998 and was the only film to do so for a long time, that film had another bite of the cherry in 2012 and its gross is now over $2 billion.

The next film to do it was The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King in 2003, since then we have had at least one film a year do the fate.

The oldest film to go over $1 Billion is Jurassic Park from 1993, but again that had another go in 2011 which pushed it over the mark, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace similarly did the same.

To date only 3 film have gone to $2 Billion, Avatar (the top grossing movie of all time), Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The next milestone will be the top 50 all over a billion, which at the current rate will be some time in 2020/21, and then of course we look forward to the next Star Wars film going over the $2 Billion mark!.

2nd June 2015

Two films this year have made it past $1 billion in world box office grosses, Avengers Age of Ultron and Fast and Furious 7, which brings the total number of films to go past the threshold to 20.

The first film to do the feat was Titanic back in 1997, that held on as the only film to do so until The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King did it in 2004.

Since then we have had the likes of a Harry Potter film, a Transformers film, a Star Wars film after a re-release and a couple of Pirates of the Caribbean films do it.

Two animated films have also done the feat, Toy Story 3 and of course Disney's biggest hit to date Frozen.

The top film of all time, and the previously mentioned Titanic have gone over the $2 billion mark, although it did take Titanic a 3D re-release to do the $2B feat. Were looking at the first $3 Billion film now, Avengers Age of Ultron is doing well but will fall short, will Star Wars: The Force Awakens manage it, 2016 will tell us.
