Movie magic. We’ve all heard about the incredible things going on behind the scenes of our favorite movies. People go to great lengths to create these films, and for good reason. The movie business is one of the most lucrative industries in the world. This much pretty much everybody knows. Some of us have even thought to ourselves once or twice: what are the most lucrative films in this lucrative industry? Well, thankfully, industries that make a lot of money are really good at keeping tabs on that money, and we’re but one small research session away from finding out what the highest-grossing films of all time truly are. So, without further ado, here they are!
Up until the late 2000s, James Cameron’s Titanic was the most commercially successful film of all time totaling a lifetime gross of $2,201,647,264. It ran a staggering 3 hours and 14 minutes and has become one of the most iconic romance films ever created. To this day people still pose as the two lovers from the Titanic: a seventeen-year-old aristocrat lady and a kind yet poor artist.
