Written by Carly Hallman

What are the highest-grossing films of the past decade, and how do they compare to Oscar winners and critical darlings? We’ve found the top three highest box office successes of the past ten years and broken them down by production budget, domestic gross, worldwide gross, and the estimated profit of each. See the astonishing difference in profit between beloved summer blockbusters, Oscar winners, and what critics on Metacritic claim are the best movies of the decade! The movies that made the most profit in the past decade include Avatar in 2009, with an astonishing $2.5 billion in estimated profit, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which made $1.7 billion in 2015. Blockbuster movies are some of the highest-profit movies, with Oscar winners for best picture and the most critically acclaimed films of each year often making a fraction of their earnings. See the worldwide box office numbers of the most profitable movies of each year from 2006 to 2016 and see for yourself: From Harry Potter to Marvel to tiny productions like A Separation, a retrospective of the past ten years of film is interesting once you view it through a monetary lens.
