We knew fantasy/science fiction/supernatural films were popular, but we weren’t quite sure just how popular until we scanned Wikipedia’s new list of the top 50 highest-grossing movies of the decade and discovered that only two—two!—didn’t fall into that category.


Based on worldwide grosses, the site ranked the movies from the 2000s in descending order, starting with 2003’s The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, with a worldwide gross of $1.12 billion (with a “b”).

Here’s the full list (title, worldwide gross, year of release)

1 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King $1,119,110,941 2003
2 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest $1,066,179,725 2006
3 The Dark Knight $1,001,921,825 2008
4 Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone $974,733,550 2001
5 Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End $960,996,492 2007
6 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix $938,212,738 2007
7 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince $929,022,922 2009
8 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers $925,282,504 2002
