The Highest-Grossing Movies Of All Time – Adjusted For Inflation

When you hear that one-single movie’s taken in over $605 million dollars in the United States alone, your jaw just drops. That’s what “Black Panther” has done domestically after five weeks of dominating the box office. However, the record-breaking Marvel tale doesn’t even sniff the jocks of the All-Time-Top-Ten when you adjust the numbers for inflation.

One of the biggest films in history might surprise you after a bit of number-juggling. The first number’s the adjusted one. The second is unadjusted/the original tally.

  1. Gone With The Wind” - $1,854,769,700 ($198,676,459)

2 “Star Wars” - $1,635,137,900 ($460,998,007)


3 “Sound Of Music” - $1,307,373,200 ($158,671,368)


4 “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” - $1,302,222,800 ($435,110,554)


5 “Titanic” - $1,244,347,300 ($659,363,944)


6 “The Ten Commandments” - $1,202,580,000 ($65,500,000)


7 “Jaws” - $1,175,763,500 ($260,000,000)


8 “Doctor Zhivago” - $1,139,563,500 ($111,721,910)


9 “The Exorcist” - $1,015,300,400 ($232,906,145)


10 “Snow White & The 7 Dwarves” - $1,000,620,000 ($184,925,486)


“Black Panther” has tons of time to catch up. Especially when you consider home video, streaming, and cable royalties – and the fact that it’s taken in just shy of $1.2-billion in just five weeks internationally.
