Highest Grossing Movies excluding China

Recommended Posts

I created this thread because I noticed that in addition to being able to easily know the gross of a film excluding USA and Canada (overseas/international gross), we also have a thread dedicated to the highest grossing movies excluding USA and China, but not one excluding China only

 

I think it makes sense also because it isn't only a very big market, at this point equal to the US, but it has grown very quickly so even "recent" films from just 10 years ago couldn't benefit from this market as much as those released more recently, making comparisons much more difficult. Here is the list:

 

 

1) Avatar: $2.586 Billion

2) Avengers: Endgame: $2.168 Billion

3) Titanic: $2.049 Billion

4) Star Wars: The Force Awakens: $1.944 Billion

5) Spider Man: No Way Home: $1.901 Billion

6) Avengers: Infinity War: $1.678 Billion

7) The Lion King: $1.537 Billion

8)Jurassic World: $1.442 Billion

9) The Avengers: $1.433 Billion

10) Frozen II: 1.328 Billion

11) Star Wars: The Last Jedi: $1.290 Billion

12) Top Gun Maverick: $1.283 Billion

13) Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows 2: $1.281 Billion

14) Black Panther: $1.242 Billion

15) Frozen: $1.233 Billion

16) The Incredibles 2: $1.192 Billion

17) Beauty and the Beast: $1.178 Billion

18) The Avengers: Age Of Ultron: $1.163 Billion

19) The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King: $1.132 Billion

20) Furious 7: $1.124 Billion

21) Iron-Man 3: $1.094 Billion

22) Minions: $1.091 Billion

23) Joker: $1.074 Billion

24) Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest: $1.066 Billion

25) The Lion King (1994): $1.063 Billion

26) Toy Story 3: $1.057 Billion (the total gross is unknown but the opening was of $9.5M)

27) Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker: $1.054 Billion

28) Skyfall: $1.049 Billion

29) Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: $1.048 Billion

30) Toy Story 4: $1.044 Billion

31) The Dark Knight Rises: $1.028 Billion

32) Alice in Wonderland: $1.025 Billion

33) Star Wars: The Phantom Menace: $1.023 Billion

34) The Dark Knight: $1.005 Billion

Some interesting facts and stats about the list: 

 

- The number of movies over one billion dollars falls from 49 to 33

 

- The year that loses the most movies is 2019, with Far From Home, Captain Marvel and Aladdin dropping off the ranking

 

- The best placed movie to leave the chart is The Fate of The Furious, previously in 20th position with 1.236B

 

- Similarly to the previous case, the film that loses the biggest part of its gross is Furious 7, a remarkable 26% of the total

 

- Age of Ultron loses an important part of its gross and surprisingly is passed by both Black Panther and Incredibles 2

Good list. Can we maybe expand it to the Top 50?

Curious what could be added this year. Probably 3-5 films break into the top 50. 

 

Yeah I think I could do it, even if initially I only wanted to have movies over one billion

 

In the meantime I can give a little "preview", the 34th film is Aladdin at about 990M

Yes. You're mistaken with that number.

I was recollecting from a post on reddit in 2019 when both TLKs had the same worldwide numbers at some point.

This is not true? Fate of the Furious is the one to lose the highest share of its worldwide gross, 32%, if I'm not mistaken.

Yeah I meant among the films that are still in the chart, Fate left it so I haven't considered it anymore  : )

The Lion King has never crossed $1bn ww. The new BoxOfficeMojo is full of bullshit numbers and have so many errors (last week their put over $1bn for King Richard (2021) LOL). TLK during it's original run was about $456m OS / $768m WW, not $545.7m OS. They've added every re-releases to its first run and later mentioned them again. Mojo isn't reliable source anymore.

BoxOfficeMojo and TheNumbers seem to have no intention to update the international gross of No Way Home (stuck at one month ago), I guess at this point it has passed the 1.9 Billion but I don't have the confirmation...

There's no official confirmation yet from the trades. Just a random tweet stating Sony claimed it passed 1.9B at the Cinemacon. But that could just be that source rounding off 1.89B to 1.9B and the tweet mistaking it as a confirmation. Or it could be an Endgame like situation, where I believe China corrected its numbers by 3M or so making it the first 2.8B movie but Disney didn't bother updating it.
