Return of the King: #2 All-Time International Box Office Earner

BBC News
reports that Return of the King has just crept past Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to become the second highest grossing box office film of all time. James Cameron's Titanic still reigns as all-time box office winner, but if you take into account that The Two Towers is number five on the all-time earners list, then Peter Jackson's trilogy has well and truly made epic financial movie history! The BBC shows the top-five all time earners as:
1. Titanic (1997) - $1.8bn (£953.3m)
2. Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King (2003) - $975.7m (£516.7m)
3. Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone (2001) - $968.6m (£513m)
4. Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace (1999) - $922.3m (£488.5m)
5. Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers (2002) - $921.6m (£488.1m)
Using IMDb's international charts, the Lord of the Rings triology has currently raked up $US2,758,000,000, putting even James Cameron to shame!
