There is no slow down on Gravity the movie. It is now top 100 movies of all-time worldwide ( $577+ million and growing). Thor Dark World has also joined top 100 movies as well ($548+ million). It is amazing news considering the fact that Thor has reached half-billion dollars in only two weeks (three if you included international). I'm curious to see how it hold up within the next few weeks against The Hunger Games II. According to IGN.com, The Hunger Games Catching Fire has reached a whopping $307 million in only three days and already half way of it previous movie ($691 million which sitting at #61 of all-time worldwide).

My prediction on final total of money on movies:

Gravity: ~$600 million
Thor Dark World: ~$800 million. (I'll be extremely shocked if it ever reaches $1 billion)
The Hunger Games Catching Fire: ~$900 million

Cannot wait to see what kind of numbers (money) The Hobbit II will hit next month (It'll be another billion dollars, I'll bet!)

I don't know why but I hate inflation. Doesn't seem fair, eh? I don't know.


EDIT: Like for example: Gone with the Wind. None of any movies in the entire world can be able to overcome the total cost of what Gone With The Wind got. But at that time, it was so cheap! Like, what? 40 cent? I think that's the reason why it's so easy to rack up so much money, when using inflation, compare to today's movies.

It's the only movie from it's time to not only be over $1 billion via inflation, but the only other movie that comes close to it was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and that made $800 million via inflation. Everything else in the top 20 are at least a decade apart. To be fair, movies that were pre-80s would have longer and multiple runs in the theaters. However, if you take out stuff pre-1980, only Avatar would end up in the top 10 of all time box office records after inflation.

Getting to the point that under 1B for a big release will feel like a disappointment.

Dang. Catching Fire is already hitting $573,000,000m in 10 days. Much faster than Thor Dark World. Currently, Thor Dark World is now $591m while Gravity is $616m. Three hot movies are climbing up so fast at the moment! Very interesting to watch....

What's impressive about modern films raking in big bucks is they face an exponential amount of competition for consumers entertainment dollars. TV, video games, more movies than ever, more ways to consume them, etc.

Movie sales threads are always more interesting when it accounts for ticket price inflation. 30 years ago, a ticket was about $2-3.

If I go to movie theater in the morning (more cheaper than at night), it only costs me $7. Not a bad price. I don't think I'd pay more money for 3D/iMax, though.

I still can't believe that utter piece of sh!t Avatar is the highest grossing movie of all time. SMH.

Good thread.
Yeah, I wasn't impressed at all. Looking back, I'd say that Titanic was at least a better all around movie that told a much better story.

Catching Fire now at $673.4m, beating Gravity ($631.5m) and Thor Dark World ($610.3m). At this pace, it looks like it can reach $900m easily. I expect Thor to do better (like to see it over $700m at least). The Hobbit 2nd movie is coming out this Friday, y'all!

As of 12/15/13:

($729.9m) The Hunger Game: Catching Fire
($642.2m) Gravity
($619.9m) Thor The Dark World
($266.0m) Frozen
($204.9m) The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (3 days).

I am surprise to see Gravity holding up pretty well, still. I was expecting for the Thor to beat Gravity anytime soon. The Hobbit has reached more than $200 millions in three days, which is an excellent news.

As of 1/5/14:

($830.9m) The Hunger Game: Catching Fire
($756.6m) The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
($663.4m) Gravity
($639.9m) Frozen
($630.5m) Thor The Dark World

Holy smurfy. I wasn't expected Frozen to overtake Thor The Dark World. Interesting. The Hunger Game is now in $800 millions. It looks like it could reach $1 billion club but only time will tell.

Robocop is near 180M so my guess is another is coming.
