25 Highest Grossing Movies of All Time

Posted by on October 23, 2012

Not long ago we released a list of the best movies ever made. Due to the subjective nature of the topic we decided to reference external sources like IMDB (Internet Movie Database) and develop our rankings based on their data. Although this list is not nearly as subjective we do realize that there are several ways to measure box office success. For this list of the 25 highest grossing movies of all time we decided to base our rankings off of the gross number of ticket sales in the worldwide box office rather than limiting ourselves to any particular region of the world.


Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Despite receiving less positive reviews than its predecessors, Spider Man 3 was the most financially successful Spider Man film grossing $891 million worldwide.


Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)

The first Harry Potter film to receive a rating of PG-13, The Goblet of Fire is also the first of several Harry Potter films on this list. It grossed $896 million at the box office.


Jurassic Park (1993)

Regarded as a breakthrough in the use of computer generated imagery, Jurassic Park is the highest grossing film produced by Universal Studios at $914 million.


Finding Nemo (2003)

Winning the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, Finding Nemo is the best selling DVD of all time and managed to gross nearly $920 million in theaters around the world.


Shrek 2 (2004)

As Dreamwork’s most successful film to date, Shrek 2 grossed nearly $920 million at the box office.
