Hunger Games is currently ranked 56th all-time worldwide, and this list stops at the top 30. It's worth noting that all but one of the top 55 earned a larger percentage of their gross overseas than Hunger Games did, suggesting that overseas audiences have slightly better taste (though of course that theory is blown out of the water by the fact that Bayformers 3 made almost 70% of its cash overseas). Anyway, this difference accounts for the fact that HG is ranked so low in international BO compared to domestic BO (where it is 13th all time). If we were only looking at domestic box office it would have made it on the list, along with Star Wars, E.T., Forrest Gump, and the Passion of the Christ. (among others)

Well, it wasn't good. Better than Twilight, I'll give it that. I think if anything the very lop-sided domestic vs. international gross of The Hunger Games shows that it owes most of its success to the fact that it was a very popular series of young adult novels in the USA. Overseas the books were not so popular and the film, on its own merits, is just not very good.

In my opinion, the first two Hunger Games were pretty good, but the last two were kind of dumb. Especially considering it was an unnecessary two-parter.

I was really surprised that Despicable Me 2 was on here. The first one was outstanding, with a great story line, characters, character development and plot, but 2 I felt didn't elevate any of the characters, had a pretty bad plot/villain, and the girls that Gru adopted did hardly anything in the entire movie. Definitely not anything as good as "IT'S SO FLUFFEH!!!" in Despicable Me 2.

CG animated sequels tend to make lots of money which is why they keep making Shreks and Ice Ages and Madagascars even though they're terrible. I guess kids will sit through anything with bright colors and recognizable characters in it.

Why don't I just go ahead and say it for everyone.

Avatar, Titanic, The Force Awakens, The Avengers, Frozen, Return of the King, Skyfall, Toy Story 3, Jurassic Park, Zootopia, and The Dark Knight are all really good movies. Jurassic World, Age of Ultron, Harry Potter, Iron Man 3, Civil War, The Dark Knight Rises, Rogue One, Finding Dory, and The Hobbit are pretty good for the most part, but not really that spectacular. Everything else is pretty much crap.

Dumb story, impressive use of CGI. And, for a movie to pull in that kind of gross during the single largest economic recession we are likely to experience in our lifetimes, its box office take is even more impressive.

Long time to inflate doesn't make sense. I think you may have meant a long time to re-release in the theatre -- which it has some. However, there were about 100 billion fewer people in the United States when it was released and none of the subsequent releases would have had the same number of attendees. In other words, GWTW was a truly epic film that relied on story and acting and blows out of the water the CGI garbage pumped out now days.

The only reason avatar is still no.1 is because it was the first ever film to be shown in 3D so most people just went for the experience, not the film. Had avatar been released slightly earlier it would struggle to make this list

But Avatar was the first released in 3D *because* of the way it was made. James Cameron spent 10 years developing those special cameras. The technology was indeed a large part of the draw, but it's not like Avatar was lucky or was randomly chosen to be the first 3D movie. Its whole process, from its inception over a decade before its release, was designed around its unique visual presentation.

He knows how to weave a compelling story, even one with a derivative plot. He knows how to take characters you've never met before and make you care about them. He knows how to tie their character arcs up in the drama on screen. He knows how to handle FX, better than anyone. He knows how to both adapt classic storytelling tropes and push the envelope at the same time. He knows how to direct an action sequence (something Bay has never been able to do, and they say that's his strength). He's a competent writer and an excellent editor. All around great filmmaker. Also, he's king of the world.

If you take ticket sales by their inflation rates the list goes like this: 1. Gone With the Wind 2. Star Wars 3. The Sound of Music 4. E.T. 5. Titanic 6. Ten Commandments 7. Jaws 8. Doctor Zhivago 9. The Exorcist 10. Snow White Avatar isn't until 15 .. which is funny because 101 Dalmatians beats it by 3 spots. Woah, 3 SPOTS..DALMATIANS (that was completely accidental btw)
