When people think of the most profitable movies in box office history, movies like “Avatar,” Titanic,” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” usually come to mind. The thing about these films is they do bring in the biggest numbers in box office history, but their budgets make it a lot harder to make a huge profit.
A lot of the time, movies with smaller budgets bring in the biggest return on investment or ROI. The numbers below for these movies are to show you some of the most profitable movies of all-time, no matter the budget. It should also be noted that the budgets, and box-office income are the estimates that the studios have released to the public, and do not include DVD/Blu-Ray and rental sales.
Avatar- ROI is 500%
Mad Max (1979)- ROI was 24,873.5% (Top 5 ROI of all-time)
The Boondock Saints- ROI was -98.21%
Action/ Adventure movies can be huge money makers, but I wouldn’t put my money on them making money when it comes to box office sales.

Napoleon Dynamite- ROI was 5,667.62% (#12 on the ROI list)

According to blastr.com It has been anncounced that Gordon would be played by Ben Mckenzie. Mckenize was the star of the show “The O.c.”and actually has some experience playing a cop in the show “Southland.”
It has been known Fox’s new Tv show about Gotham City and the early day’s of superheros titled “Gotham” would be centered around a young Jim Gordon, but who would play Jim Gordon was the question.
The show will also tell the origin stories of Batman, The riddler, The Joker, and The Penguin!
If everything in production goes well then the show should be airing sometime late 2014!Let’s cross our fingers for nothing to delay production on this TV series.
According to Blastr, on Febuary 6th Johnny Depp is on the top of the list for actors they want to play Dr. Strange. Looking at the similarites its pretty clear why.
Marvel is owned by Disney and Disney does have contract with Johnny Depp for the Pirate movies, which makes this idea alot less farfetched.
Seth Gordon director of the comedy hit “Horrible Bosses” has been confirmed as the director of the upcoming Uncharted movie. The movie is based of the video game series made exclusively for playstation. At one time Mark Wahlberg was signed on to star as Nathan Drake, but word has not been said if he is still involved.
If Mark Walhberg is involved hopefully this video game adaption goes better than his last, Max Payne becasue that movie was not recieved well by fans or critics, and was a box office bomb.
