Big Blockbusters With Inflated Box Office Grosses

Most of the time, big blockbuster movies bring huge amounts of money at the box office. Once they make their money back, they are put into a list involving the highest grossing films of all time. However the list could change whenever a new movie is released and makes an colossal worldwide box office gross. Then that new movie replaces the old one’s place instead. For example when Titanic was released in 1997, it was the highest grossing film of all time. This means it had take Jurassic Park’s (1993) place in the number one highest grossing movie of all time. Back then Jurassic Park (1993) replaced E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982) for highest grossing movie of all time.

What wasn’t accounted before was the inflation of prices. The inflation of box office grosses meant that movies that were used to be of one the highest grossing films of all time, can now be on a list that accounts for how money has gotten more expensive over the years. According to a newspaper article, “While James Cameron’s soggy epic tops many lists, with a box-office gross of US$600 million, the movie magazine Empire has handed the title to Gone With the Wind. In its issue, on sale Wednesday, Empire has listed the 100 biggest box-office movies of all time. The twist is the figures have been adjusted for inflation to give a clearer picture of the biggest money-makers” (Sunday Herald Sun (Melbourne). Despite Titanic being known as the highest grossing film of all time to common folks, it is revealed the film had to have enormous inflation gross in order to qualify for that title.
