I may or may not have seen it when it was originally in theatres. However, I will see it next month.

Pretty sure this has the record for most money (adjusted for inflation) made in a calendar year ($926,468,439).

 

Runner-up is Titanic with the $919,757,524 adjusted take from 1998.

Simply one of the biggest hits of all time. :) Some numbers:

 

   Production Budget:  $10.5 million

   Marketing costs:      N/A

 

   Domestic:     $435.1 million [the biggest film of all time when it finished its run with $359.2M]

   Foreign:        $334.9 million [same here with $281.3M]

   Worldwide:   $770 million [same here with $640.5M before re-releases, but some vintage articles claim $619M or $639M]

 

Fun fact - E.T.'s overseas (and worldwide) final numbers are some huge bullshit. As i pointed out in other topic, there are various sources that shows that the films numbers magically grown in 2004 without any re-releases. :P 

 

 

Its domestic original gross is probably the second biggest gross from single theatrical run, only behind Titanic's original run!!

I’d just like to confirm I did see it on the big screen.

Still my favorite movie even today.

 

However I saw it on VHS as a kid because the movie released well before my borth.
