Can You Pick The Biggest Movie Of All Time?
At $1,733,542,900 (adjusted for inflation), Gone With the Wind is the highest-grossing film by more than $200 million over the next highest-grossing film: Star Wars.
Close! To date, Star Wars: A New Hope has brought in $1,528,266,100 worldwide, making it the second highest-grossing film of all time (adjusting for inflation). Try again!
Not too far off. The Sound of Music has brought in $1,221,923,900, but that's only enough to make it the third-largest movie of all time (adjusting for inflation).
You weren't too far off. Fourth isn't bad, but E.T. has only grossed $1,217,110,200 worldwide (adjusting for inflation). Give it another go.
This one might be surprising to a lot of people, who can recall how big the release of this film was in 1997. But adjusting for inflation, Titanic has only brought in $1,162,371,000, putting it in 5th place.
The Ten Commandments was a huge film when it was released in 1956, but since then the $1,123,980,000 (adjusting for inflation) it's earned has been outpaced by several other films.
Jaws has earned $1,098,916,300 worldwide (adjusting for inflation), putting it nearly $700 million behind the highest-grossing film. Try again!
Clocking in at a cool 197 minutes, it's hard to believe that this sweeping epic has made so much money, but adjusting for inflation, Doctor Zhivago has earned $1,065,082,200. Try again.
Considering how recently it was released, it's conceivable that Star Wars: The Force Awakens still has money to earn, but according to Box Office Mojo, it's officially brought in $927,649,200 to date, which doesn't even crack the top 10.
