All time top movies in admissions for USA, Russia, UK, France and Germany

This list for the USA has flaws (Roadshow movies like Ben-Hur and 3D movies are miscalculated) -- but Ghostbusters in 84 still was a bigger hit than TDK:

For the UK the BFI compiled a list that shows Gone with the Wind is still number one there with a staggering 35 million admissions:

Rudolf gave me this link for France, actual admission numbers since 1938 or so, the top 250. In France Titanic is the all time winner, and GWTW just number six:

Insidekino.de has a list that tracks movie admissions since 1968. In Germany, The Jungle Book wins (with re-releases), and Titanic is just number two. List however doesn't include the 50ies. Biggest hit in Germany ever seems to have been Der Förster vom Silberwald -- 1954 -- with a mindblowing 28 million admissions:

For Spain, peludo just gave me this link: Top 6 in admissions are Titanic, Avatar, E.T., Doctor Zhivago, The Fellowship of the Ring and Star Wars. (Initial list from 2007, so Avatar has to be added.)

Another link from Rudolf for Russia. It's not all time but a great list since 2008:

The last chart "attendance" at #1 on page 1.

http://forums.boxoff...l-titanic-rises

But the title says "gross in RMB". Is the attendance just estimated or based on an "official" list like the BFI numbers in UK?

(Which still might suck somehow. Only France and Germany so far deliver actual admission numbers.)

In Spain I have found this linkhttp://www.forodvd.com/tema/44412-cotilleando-las-peliculas-mas-vistas-espana/It has two lists, top 30 foreign films and top 20 Spanish films. It's dated in 2007. Since that date, there has only been one entry in the top 30, Avatar, to the second rank, with 9,076,653 admissions (according to Ministry of Culture).

Winnetou(1963) is the 12th most successful movie in Russia? - Great (Not this silly Schuh Des Mannitu, that Germans seem to love)For those of you, who have never heard of Winnetou: his story is said to have at least inpired the Lone Ranger series, which will have a movie with Johnny Depp next year.

Many movies with some political message couldn't be released here before dictator Franco's death (1975)

All Winnetou movies sold something like +15 million tickets in Germany. They just didn't track it.It's cool you realized it was so big in Russia, but I need an english link. It know it exists but I can't find it. Was posted one at BOM. :wub:
