Ever wondered which movies have been the most successful? That is, if we're measuring success in money.
If you think that Star Wars is the number one, you couldn't be more wrong. And it's not Harry Potter, unfortunately.
I was surprised when I found out the winner, but it deserves the title. Especially when you consider the commotion it caused at the time of release. INSIDER has compiled a list of 37 highest-grossing movies of the past 25 years. What's the main criteria to join this elite club? Earning more than $1 billion worldwide. Aquaman is the latest film to make it in. Barely.
The ranks were determined based on data from Box Office Mojo.
It might seem like the ultimate list of vanity. But, believe it or not, top-grossing movies say a lot about what 21st century society and culture and are like. This is how we're going to be remembered.
