At the end of last month, I published a post titled: A reminder of the current box office top ten – as Infinity War opens. The point of the post was to offer up a look at how the All-Time Top Ten list of highest grossing movies stacked up before Avengers: Infinity War arrived and moved things around a little.

Three(ish) weeks on and as promised, I’m now revisiting the list to see what the differences are. Has Infinity War changed things around?

Well, as a reminder, here’s the All-Time Box Office Top Ten as it stood on April 26th:

  • 1 Avatar (2009) – $2,787,965,087
  • 2 Titanic (1997) – $2,187,463,944
  • 3 Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) – $2,068,223,624
  • 4 Jurassic World (2015) – $1,671,713,208
  • 5 The Avengers (2012) – $1,518,812,988
  • 6 Furious 7 (2015) – $1,516,045,911
  • 7 Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) – $1,405,403,694
  • 8 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) – $1,341,511,219
  • 9 Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) – $1,332,757,449
  • 10 Black Panther (2017) – $1,325,776,812

As you can see, Avatar is at the top, Black Panther is at the bottom and The Avengers & Furious 7 are somewhere in the middle.

OK, so here’s how the same list looks as of today, May 15th:

  • 1 Avatar (2009) – $2,787,965,087
  • 2 Titanic (1997) – $2,187,463,944
  • 3 Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) – $2,068,223,624
  • 4 Jurassic World (2015) – $1,671,713,208
  • 5 Avengers: Infinity War (2018) – $1,607,540,130
  • The Avengers (2012) – $1,518,812,988
  • 7 Furious 7 (2015) – $1,516,045,911
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) – $1,405,403,694
  • 9 Black Panther (2017) – $1,342,159,048
  • 10 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) – $1,341,511,219

The first thing to note in this revised list is that Avengers: Infinity War is not only in the Top Ten list, but it’s also at No. 5. But then, you already know this as I’ve gone on about it previously on It’s A Stampede!.

Of course, Infinity War‘s arrival has meant one very significant change – Star Wars: The Last Jedi is no longer in the Top Ten. The film has now slipped into eleventh place.

Everything else on the list has pretty much remained the same, with one notable exception – Black Panther. The movie that just keeps on going… has kept on going.

As you can see, Black Panther has now surpassed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 at the worldwide box office. Black Panther has taken $1,342,159,048 to Harry Potter’s $1,341,511,219, meaning they’ve switched places on the list.

It’s unlikely that Black Panther will move any further up the ladder, so it’s done well to overtake Harry Potter at the final hurdle. Well done.

Infinity War is likely to move further up the ladder and will almost certainly overtake Jurassic World before it ends its run. However, with the likes of Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story on the horizon, Infinity War‘s box office takings will slow down considerably from what we’ve witnessed over the past three weeks.

This now leaves us with one question: Can any other movie break into the Top Ten this year?

Hmm… let’s not forget a certain dino-sequel is due out in June.

Just sayin’.
