I used this as my daily trivia question yesterday. Who was the first director to gross $10 billion across all of his films.
4 people instantly thought of Spielberg and James Cameron, but only one of them went with the right answer. George Lucas was also an answer I heard.

Cameron has two of the highest grossing films of all time with both Titanic and Avatar. Plus, his other ventures into sci fi with Terminator, T2: Judgement Day, and Aliens. Should be interesting if the rumored 4 new Avatar sequels plus if he returns to the Terminator franchise if that will push him to the top.

Right, I am giving the man credit for making some of the biggest movies ever. He has less than HALF of the movies Spielberg does. 57 vs 24

Wasn't disputing you, was just saying... like adding to your narrative.

I'm so defensive! It's rare you are agreeing with someone.

Bazinga!
