Avatar – $261 million
Director James Cameron wrapped up filming Titanic in 1997, and after that, he set out to make a movie he’d been dreaming of making his whole life — Avatar.
In 2009 he released the much-hyped film, and it was making over $2 billion at the box office and quickly became the highest-grossing film of all time.
The movie proves not to be memorable or an all-time movie. It had no fan fiction, cosplay, or even excellent threads to elevate the more terrific film of all time.

King Kong (2005) – $251 million
A movie with 187 minutes, audiences felt the 2005’s King Kong was too long to be enjoyed.
The movie had great established actors like Naomi Watts and Adrian Brody and great special effects.
The director Peter Jackson, enjoying the Lord of the Rings success, seems to have forgotten about editing.
Considering that Return of the King had a run time of 201 minutes, he was probably in the mindset that longer is better.
