Although I have never seen one of his movies, I was curious to find out who he dethroned to take his place as King of Cinema.  The results were fairly surprising to me, so here is a list of the top 20 movie franchises of all time.  This list is based on box office performance,not personal preference.

*It should also be noted that this list is accurate as of November 2010, so franchises like Transformers, X-Men, Pirates of the Caribbean, and even King Potter will be negatively affected since they’ve released movies this year.


#20: The Mummy – 3 movies ($1.2 billion)

# 19: Terminator – 4 movies ($1.4 billion)

#18: Mission: Impossible – 3 movies ($1.4 billion)


#17: Star Trek – 11 movies ($1.5 billion)

#16: Transformers – 2 movies* ($1.5 billion)

#15: X-Men – 4 movies* ($1.6 billion)


#14: The Matrix – 3 movies ($1.6 billion)
