4. James Bond – Sheer number of releases propelled this into the top 10 of the all time box office totals but with the most recent releases all doing extremely well on their own accord it deserves its place on the list. Whilst Spectre was not the smash that Skyfall was, Skyfall being the first bond film to break the billion dollars on its own, there is still an extremely interested fan base. Bond 25 is currently in development so this total will continue to be added to.
TOTAL BOX OFFICE – $7,077,929,291
3. Harry Potter – Little did Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint know what they were getting into back in 2001 when the first Potter film was released. With 8 films in this series and the spin off Fantastic Beasts films adding to their haul the Potter franchise ran up the charts and for a short while, was top of the tree until our last two (which you have probably guessed already) jumped ahead.
TOTAL BOX OFFICE – $9,158,367,838
