The Three Lists:

  • The Domestic, Unadjusted (for inflation) list of box-office champs is top heavy with recent films. Rankings may change daily with every new blockbuster release. There are few films that are classics or films from Hollywood's Golden Era in this list. Top-grossing, financially-successful films often rate lower in artistic achievement. Blockbusters, special effects wonders, films with sequels and expensive campaign and publicity ads fill many of the positions. (Notice that there are very few pre-1980 films in the unadjusted list.)
  • The Domestic, Adjusted (for inflation) list of box-office champs - with rankings that don't vary much from month to month (and therefore is not updated as regularly) - takes into account inflationary factors such as ticket prices and any re-issues or re-releases, and is more reflective of a film's actual appeal. [It is inflation-adjusted to the 2014 average ticket price of $8.15. Most pre-1980 pictures achieved their totals through multiple releases.] The escalating price of theatre tickets would otherwise bias a list of all-time blockbuster films to recent releases. See more details.
  • The Worldwide list of box-office-champs - in some cases, the gross earnings were made with multiple releases. Currently, only about a quarter of the films were not in the decade of the 2000s.
