There are some movies that have been extremely popular since they came out, and there are some that haven’t been as successful. These include Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, The Last Jedi, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. These movies have been the top movies for many years. But which one made the most money? Here are the answers to that question. You may be surprised!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:Part 2” collected nearly $43 million on its first weekend in theaters, breaking two records: the single day and midnight screening record. The film grossed more than $92 million in the United States, beating the previous record of $72.7 million for the Twilight Saga: New Moon. “Harry Potter” is currently playing on more than 11,000 screens in 4,375 locations.
The films were both huge successes for their respective directors. The second movie was directed by Chris Columbus, who also helmed the first and third films. The director was compensated more than $30 million for the double-header. In fact, the director has banked more than US$70 million from the Harry Potter series overall. And what’s more, Deathly Hallows Part 2 is set to become one of the highest-grossing movies of all time.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Of all the Star Wars movies, The Last Jedi was the most profitable, with over $10 billion in worldwide box office receipts. The franchise has spawned many iconic sci-fi films, and the last three have managed to rake in millions of dollars. While The Last Jedi’s numbers are impressive, they still don’t quite match those of its predecessors. Despite this, The Last Jedi remains the highest-grossing movie of all time.
Despite the fact that The Last Jedi made the most money, it was only 36 percent less profitable than The Force Awakens. While some may view this as a failure, it is actually the opposite. Even the original trilogy of films made less money than the sequels. Return of The Jedi only had 67 percent of A New Hope’s audience, and the prequels were similarly underwhelming.
Gone With the Wind
If you’re looking for the highest grossing movie ever, then look no further than Gone With the Wind. The film is one of the most popular movies of all time, and it’s still held the record for 25 years. Adjusting for inflation, Gone With the Wind still earned more than any other film in history. But what about its historical significance? What are its strengths and weaknesses? Which movies have more lasting appeal?
In 1939, this epic Civil War film premiered in Atlanta. While only a few veterans of the war attended the premiere, Martin Luther King, Jr., along with his prominent preacher father, attended. When the film was released in wide release, Georgia’s governor declared Dec. 15 a state holiday in honor of the event. “Gone With the Wind” earned over $1.6 billion worldwide and became the highest grossing movie of all time. The film boasted three directors, but only two were given credits.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Among all the recent films to be released in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, On Stranger Tides is the most successful, earning $695 million in foreign markets alone. It is also the fourth highest grossing film of all time at the global box office. The movie is currently on track to surpass Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which earned more than $1.4 billion worldwide.
The film dominated the box office for its second weekend, despite the negative reviews it received at home. While this might seem to be an unfortunate situation, the movie is still making money and breaking records for Disney. As of April 2017, the movie is the fourth highest grosser globally. However, it’s important to note that the movie isn’t a direct sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. While the franchise has earned $1.045 billion worldwide, the recent installments are breaking all the previous records.
The latest Marvel Studios movie has become the most successful of all time. After the success of Avengers: Infinity War, the next installment of the Avengers franchise, will supposedly earn more than $2 billion worldwide. Nonetheless, it’s important to note that the cost of making such a blockbuster film is not always cheap. Despite the high production costs, the Marvel Studios’ latest offering will still earn you millions of dollars.
The movie had a massive ensemble cast, epic battles, and an ending to the Marvel storyline. Its opening weekend was so successful that the film shattered all previous records. It grossed $357 million domestically, over the estimated budget of $523.7 million. It also surpassed Avatar for the highest grossing film of all time. In total, the film has made $2,797,800,564 worldwide.
