Many people enjoy watching movies because it takes them to new places. They can experience adventures they could never have in real life, and they can forget about the issues surrounding the world for a few hours.
Overall, making movies is a lucrative business. Though it started out as small skits in black and white with no sound, films have come a long way. Whether you like action or drama movies, there’s something for everyone, as long as you enjoy visual media.
While there’s something for everyone, some things might appeal more to people, and those movies tend to bank more. Here are some of the highest-grossing films of all time.
Jurassic Park (1993)
Steven Spielberg created a technological masterpiece of a movie, and it still awes and shocks people decades later. Though the sequels made more money, none of them come close to the original wonder. Its lifetime gross is way over $1 billion, currently at $1,033,917,066.
Despicable Me 3 (2017)
In most cases, a sequel doesn’t gross as much from the box office, so a third movie is even less likely to make the big bucks. However, that doesn’t stop Despicable Me 3 from doing it all. Its lifetime gross is $1,034,800,131.
