Top 10 Biggest Grossing Movies Of All Time in the U.S (2016 Update)

For over 10 years, Titanic was the biggest grossing movie (domestically) in U.S movie history till Avatar knocked it off the number one spot in 2009. I remember feeling bad when I heard the news of Titanic's dethronement, cos in my fantasy world, Titanic was going to be the biggest selling movie till I died. But I felt better when I found out Avatar was directed by the same person that directed Titanic, James Cameron. Now, after 7 years, another movie has kicked Avatar off the number one spot.

Below are the top 10 highest grossing movies of all time in the U.S.A.

10. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)- $448,139,099

9.  Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)- $459,005,869

8.  Star Wars (1977)- $460,998,007

7.  Star Wars: Episode One- The Phantom Menace (1999)- $474,544,677

6.  The Dark Night (2008)- $534,858,444

5.  Marvel's The Avengers (2012)- $623,357,910

4.  Jurassic World (2015)- $652,270,625

3.  Titanic (1997)- $658,672,302

2.  Avatar (2009)- $760,507,627

1.  Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)- $858,953,106

Star Wars- The Force Awakens is at the top and still making huge money at the cinemas. It is on the way to becoming the first movie to gross a billion domestically in history. Please note that these data represents what the movies made domestically in the U.S, and not what they made worldwide. Worldwide gross is harder to authenticate, that's why I am working with what they made in the U.S.

Thank you.
