Directed by the legend, James Cameron, Avatar has earned a whopping 2.79 billion dollars on box office. It secures the top spot in our list and it seems to remain there. The world that Cameron created and the anti-war message that was given makes this movie worth all this fame and glory. He thinks that he can give a transformative experience to mankind with movies. And he did inspire many people with his depiction of the world of Pandora. The 3D technology made the movie state of the art.
Again by the same director James Cameron, Titanic earned a massive 2.19 billion dollars on the box office. This blockbuster epic romantic movie is still universally popular in the pop culture zeitgeist. The chemistry between Kate and Leo was beyond charming. The title song sung by Celine Dion is still loved. The depiction of the true event of Titanic wreckage was marvelous. No one can defeat Cameron in the art of storytelling. The historical details of the event and the fictional romance made this movie hard to forget ever.
The Avengers (2012)
Directed by Joss Whedon, the movie has earned 1.52 billion dollars on the box office. The directorial skills of Whedon are praiseworthy. The fans of superhero movies simply loved it and for all the right reasons. There’s no doubt that the Fantastic Four and X-Men also received a grand screen treatment. But Avengers take the lead because of its evolving characters. The superhero team made the audience love the action.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Again Avengers! The series actually made a lot. Infinity War grossed 2.05 billion dollars. The directors, Anthony, and Joe Russo have fully embraced the grandeur of this series. Comic book lovers still rant about how this comic book series is not fully grasped. Still, the series was watched across the world. The melodrama and sheer spectacle make a worth watching.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)
Grossing grandly on the box office, around 2.07 billion dollars, the movie is directed by J.J. Abrams. The trilogy feels just right despite some absurd dialogues. While they had the technology and budget restraints in the first three movies, the overabundance in this one allowed a good balance of special and practical effects. The Force Awakens was much better than all its prequels.
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Avengers is appearing for the third time in this list. With grossing 1.41 billion dollars on the box office, this was the second one in the Avengers series. It suffered an immediate blowback but then was received warmly. It was a thoroughly entertaining movie and became a record-smashing original for Joss Whedon. People are simply in love with this team of superheroes.
Black Panther (2018)
Again a superhero movie, Black Panther grossed around $1.35 billion on the box office. Directed by Ryan Coogler, this one is a Disney movie. Yet, the action scenes and the depiction of the world of Wakanda were beyond amazing. The director broke the stereotypes by making a black superhero as they did it in Captain Marvel too by making a woman a superhero. Chadwick Aaron Boseman performed amazingly well.
Furious 7 (2015)
Grossing $1.52 billion on the box office, this action series has won our heart. Directed by James Wan, Furious 7 was full of adrenaline rush and mind-blowing action. Although most of the stunts defy physics, yet we love seeing all this action. And the star-studded cast was also hard to miss. One of the main stars of the Fast and Furious franchise, Paul Walker passed away in a car crash before they could complete the filming. This added to the nostalgic impact of the movie. The fans simply loved it.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)
This is the second Star Wars movie on our list and it earned a massive $1.33 billion on the box office. Rian Johnson, the director took the liberty of making this part more daring than its predecessor part. The movie is full of thrill and action. The Last Jedi has challenged the audience and the whole series by blowing up the universe and rebuilding a new one. The movie gives a whole new direction to all the myths.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is last on our list by earning $1.34 billion on the box office. David Yates, the director remained consistent with epic narrative and visuals just like the rest of the parts. It is perhaps the best of all the 8 Potter movies.
