Steven Spielberg first director to gross $10bn

Quote:
Ready Player One has helped make Steven Spielberg become the first director to gross a total of $10bn at the worldwide box office.

The latest blockbuster from the legendary filmmaker - adapted from the cult novel by Ernest Cline - has proved a hit with audiences across the globe, with takings of $474.8m (£333.1m) since it opened last month.

Take a look at the article, it tells you what his top 10 films are. Tbh this came as a bit of a surprise to me because with the success of many of his films I thought he would have achieved this a long time ago. I am delighted though, it sends a message to everyone in the industry that if you stay true to your beliefs and focus on the art of "movie magic" then things will work out and take care of themselves. Ready Player One was the perfect film to help push him over the mark and it couldn't have worked out any better.

There are many good directors but there ain't that many great ones and Steven Spielberg is that.

It's worth remembering that it's only really in the last 20 years or so that we've had films taking billions at the box office..

Re: Steven Spielberg first director to gross $10bn

I like Spielberg movies, but have to admit, if James Cameron was more active, he would've cracked this years ago. In all likelihood, he'll overtake if Avatar sequels and Terminator eventually show up.

The thing with James Cameron is he has other big interests thus we don't get as many films as one would hope sadly.

Re: Steven Spielberg first director to gross $10bn

I am surprised Martin Scorsese or Ridley Scott haven't managed it either

Re: Steven Spielberg first director to gross $10bn

Ready Player one has just broken the $500 million barrier, with $200 million coming from China.
