#5. Stars Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace – $1,027,044,677
This one barely sneaks in due to its billion-dollar status being confirmed after a successful 3D re-release. There’s not much to be said that hasn’t already been said about this much-abused prequel trilogy-opener so I’ll keep this short. Darth Maul & Set-Pieces: Good. Gungans & Levels of Excitement: Bad. On a side note, I personally would have included Attack of the Clones on this list rather than Menace had it also earned a billion at the box office, but that’s just me.
