The 15 Best Selling Movies of All Time

The 15 Best Selling Movies of All Time

If you’re a movie retailer or general movie buff looking to boost your collection with the most popular films in history, we’ve put together a list of the 15 best selling movies of all time. Don’t worry, it has been adjusted to take inflation into account, so it’s not just a list of Avengers and Fast and Furious releases. Take a look, you might be surprised by what people really want when it comes to home entertainment.

 Old is still gold when it comes to best-selling movies

The number one movie on the list is also the second-oldest, so although the flashy, blockbuster franchises perform extremely well in today’s market, it seems that theatre goers still like a good old-fashioned saga (especially if it tugs at the heart strings). Makes you wonder if all those Paul Walker fanboys secretly sit at home watching Titanic, drying their tears on the sleeves of their Celine Dion pajamas.

So, without further ado, let’s get started!
