Let us make a rundown of the top 10 highest grossing movies to come out of tinsel town.

This epic movie about the tragic sinking of a big ship has been a gigantic blockbuster at the box office tallying record sales that ran for 13 weeks. It is also the most expensive movie ever produced.

 

2. Star Wars, 1977 & 1997, $461,000,000

This sci-fiction spectacle has led to many lesser imitations which tried in vain to ride on the success of the movie. What is amazing about the success of this movie is that it follows a forlorn and oft repeated formula of story line where good triumphs over evil.

 

3. Star Wars: Episode I-The Phantom Menace, 1999, $431,000,000

It is quite amazing that this Star Wars offering was regarded as a flop, just because it failed to make a billion dollars at the tills. How can you top a performance which is already considered a historical success? Nonetheless, this “failure” is still good for 3rd spot of top grossing movies.

 

4. E.T.: The Extra-Terrestial, 1982, $400,000,000

5. Jurassic Park, 1993, $357,000,000

This is one movie we allowed our kids to watch and enjoyed watching them shriek with fear and excitement. It used the revolutionary and cutting edge computer animation technology to put to life the big bad dinosaur.
