MOVIE TOPS FOR TITANIC PROFIT.

THE world's top 100 grossing movies of all time have been revealed - and they prove the Titanic was not such a disaster after all.

The James Cameron spectacular about the unsinkable ship heads the list with @1,520million earned at international box offices.

It beats off competition from The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, and even Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Next up is another Lord of the Rings movie, The Two Towers. The Star Wars series is still a big draw and the 1999 Phantom Menace is right up there at number five. Then comes Jurassic Park and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring comes in at eight just ahead of Shrek 2.

Rounding out the top 10 from leading movie experts Box Office Mojo, is more animated fun with Finding Nemo.

Here is the list in full.
