The 10 Highest-Grossing Movies of All Time - There's One Movie That Beats 'Star Wars' - by Paul Schrodt/ Entertainment/ Business Insider/ businessinsider.com

""Star Wars: The Force Awakens" looks ready to demolish box-office records when it comes out on Friday, with advance ticket sales that are quadruple the previous record.

So it's a good time to look back at what are the highest-grossing movies ever. For this list, we looked at domestic box-office grosses adjusted for inflation to see what old movies would have made in today's dollars, as calculated by Box Office Mojo. So there's no "Avatar" on this list.

The original 1977 "Star Wars" comes in high, but not quite first. You might be surprised by some of the other titles..."

one would imagine that "adjusted gross" is a highly "adjustible" number!

It all depends on what inflation they are adjusting it against. Is it overall inflation or the inflation of the movie ticket price. I am not sure that they are the same over the years. The best measure is based on pure number of tickets sold.

This must be based on just domestic sales, otherwise I would expect Avatar to be on the list

If you look at adjusted vs unadjusted, the numbers are all over the board. How can 184m unadjusted in 1937 adjust to a lower gross than 111m unadjusted in 1965? Makes no sense.

I can see that, debate or not, I can agree with #1.

As for the other films, Frankly My Dear, I don't give a d...!:rofl:
