2012 Box-Office

Now that 2012 is in the can, the grosses, domestically and worldwide, for the box-office have been tallied and I have to say it is quite impressive. Three movies crossed the billion dollar mark worldwide and (upon doing a little bit of research) that means it has tied with 2011 with three films crossing the 1 billion mark. That’s amazing!


There are now 14 movies that have crossed that point (two of which that have crossed 2 billion, both directed by James Cameron).

Here is the list of domestic grosses:

  1. Marvel’s The Avengers – $623.4m
  2. The Dark Knight Rises – $448.1m
  3. The Hunger Games – $408.0m
  4. Skyfall – $289.6m
  5. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 – $286.4m
  6. The Amazing Spider-Man – $262.0m
  7. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – $238.1m
  8. Brave – $237.3m
  9. Ted – $218.7m
  10. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – $216.4m
  11. Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax – $214.0m
