The highest grossing movies over a billion dollars are special. There are some movies that shine at the film award ceremonies and win consecutive awards, but the box office proceeds they achieve in the movie theaters are not very remarkable. On the other hand, there are movies that succeed in filling the movie theaters with audiences, and we don't see them very often at award ceremonies. There are also exceptional productions, which manage to fill movie theaters and collect awards. The highest grossing movies over a billion dollars are at the top of the pyramid, and that's where the producers want their movies to be.

When we take a look at the highest grossing movies over a billion dollars, we see that science fiction, fantasy, and animated movies occupy a large part of the list. This is a result of the magic of cinema to reflect surrealism on the big screen, and it succeeds in filling movie theaters with audiences. However, the first movie to gain this privilege was a movie based on true events. “Titanic”, which was released in 1997, took its place in history as the first movie to reach a billion dollar box office worldwide. And then, over the years, many movies have followed and achieved this success.

When the most successful movies of all time are mentioned, if the box office revenues are taken into account, it is possible to make a data-based ranking. Of course, over the years, the number of movie theaters has increased, the purchasing power of the audience has changed, and inflation has affected ticket prices. In a sense, these are the main reasons why old movies are not among the highest grossing movies over a billion dollars. However, as a solution to this, there is a different ranking created by re-evaluating the box office revenue figures of old movies with inflation data and adapting them to today's figures. But if we want a quantifiable and factual ranking, we must rely on up-to-date box office data.

A billion dollar box office gross represents a psychological barrier, and when a movie surpasses that figure worldwide, it becomes a member of a private club. Today, the number of members of this private club is still around fifty. And there is a fact that being a member of this club is not cheap. In order to be among the movies with a box office gross of more than a billion dollars, you need to shoot one of the highest budget movies in a sense. In general, great success can be achieved with great investment. I have listed the movies that have grossed more than a billion dollars at the box office and the total revenues they have made so far. Let's take a look at the most successful blockbusters of all time.
