Highest Grossing Movies But Never #1 at Box Office
Billkozy on 02/01/2008
|This quiz features the 12 highest grossing films that never were able to reach Number 1 at the Box Office on the U.S. charts. There was always some other film from week to week that outperformed them during their releases. So it's kind of tricky: You may find yourself thinking, "That's one of the highest grossing films? What about...?" But remember, the very highest grossing films most certainly reached Number 1 at the Box Office one week or another. |
Enjoy the quiz, and please rate it afterward if that's okay. Good Luck, and with that, I'll leave you with these parting words from DVD producer Mark Rance about the state of the movie box office in the U.S.
"I think something interesting has happened. I think theatrical died about a year ago. And where you see it is where you always see changes—in the lesser films, in the films the studio won't back with huge marketing campaigns. What we're used to is the 19th-century theatrical experience: you go to a theater with a large group of people, you see a movie and enjoy it with a crowd. That's being replaced now by, like, 20 people in your living room, like a book club, watching a film they might not have heard of… We're probably at that stage now where the romantic version of the social experience of film is disappearing. I don't think it's permanent, but I think it's going to shift to something that the older generations don't have in their head yet, something they can't imagine."
