Very nice. There are no movies from before 2000 except Titanic on there... How high will Dark Knight Rises and Avatar 2 go?

impressive but I Expected that, a few weeks/months later it my go to the third one, more months then it will be seconds, and the war between Harry Potter and Transformers starts for the first place. I wonder how much the Transformers 4 will gross if they make a one.

Impressive.

I've only seen two of the movies on that list, and one of them was DOTM.

It was a 3D movie.

...Which in reality probably drastically helped DOTM's revenue.

I'd still love to see a list with ticket prices averaged. Let's face it, DOTM only got up there because of the increase in ticket prices.

The key number in all of these would be "total tickets sold". Most of these wouldn't hold a candle to some of the older movies like Star Wars or Citizen Kane. And yes, 3D does inflate the numbers. However, DOTM had a lot more going for it, not the least of which is an significant- and surprising- appeal among the young female population age 16-25. I took care of 5 patients in that age group in the hospital and all five of them said- without my mentioning it previously- that the new TF movie was the one they were looking forward to the most this past summer. Very surprising to me. But if you get that crowd, you get money...just look at Harry Potter and Twilight.

I seriously doubt Twilight will be a threat this year. Yes, people will flock to see it, but it's going to rely on a LOT of repeat goings as HP and even TF appeals to a MUCH BROADER audience.

I mean I can't see an age bracket of 10-80 in the movie theatre for Twilight like I did for Deathly Hallows Pt 2.

So to get the #1 or #2 spot, we must have James Cameron direct the 4th or Reboot to the TransFormers Franchise. :-?

Meaningless. It doesn't account for lower prices on movies from years and decades past. Adjust for inflation, or simply count number of tickets sold, and I'll be able to take the list seriously.

Really? I've seen 7 1/2 of them (I stopped watching Alice in Wonderland halfway through).

As are all the others, except maybe for Titanic. But it was re-released in theaters. Did that get added to its total?

I don't know about that. It seems the LOTR movies are very mouch a "geek" thing. The Dark Knight Rises movie is going to blow everything away. I just hope they don't do it in 3D...I'm getting sick of it.

They probably won't. I don't think Nolan is the type to make his movies gimmicky.
