Most successful movies of all time

The movie “Avatar” tops the list of most successful movies of all time, having raised 2.78 billion US dollars in box office revenue since its release in December 2009. “Avatar,” a science-fiction adventure film, is joined by “Titanic”, a romance film, at the top, with 2.19 billion US dollars in box office revenue earned since its release in 2007. Other famous titles on the list include “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part II)” and "Jurassic World”. Although comedy was one of the most successful and popular movie genres in North America between 1995 and 2018, few of the most successful movies of all time are comedies.

The movies listed above are ranked according to the amount of box office revenue they generated. Box office revenue is one of the film industry’s most significant measures of a film’s commercial success—it is the sum of money generated in ticket sales during the period of time that a film is shown in theaters. Approximately 11.1 million US dollars were raised through ticket sales in North America in 2017.
