Top Grossing Movies of All Time

With some recent movies rapidly rising to the top of the worldwide box office charts, we had to double check which ones are currently at the top again. See if you can guess them from these questions:

The current #1 ranked movie worldwide (as of the time of this writing) has 4 sequels coming out, 2 already filmed and in post-production. (Hint: It is NOT a Marvel movie.) One of its stars is in 5 of the top 100 grossing films of all time (worldwide). Name the movie, and for extra credit, the star and the top grossing movies the actor appeared in.

The current #2 movie has an actor that's appeared in 6 of the top 100 grossing movies of all time (worldwide). Name the actor, the movie, and for bonus points, the top grossing movies that actor appeared in.

The current #3 all time grossing movie (worldwide) had such a long theatrical run that the studio had to send out replacement reels to theaters that had literally worn out their copies. The person who wrote and directed this movie also wrote and directed #1. Name the movie and the writer/director.

Easter Eggs!

In honor of the newly released Avengers: Endgame (which, from early critic reviews, is everything we hoped it would be) and the recent Easter holiday, we present some "easter eggs" from Marvel movies.

Did you know that in Marvel's 2003 Hulk movie Lou Ferrigno has a cameo as a security guard? Ferrigno famously played the Hulk in the old television series.

Did you know that in Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014), there is a brief moment where we see Nick Fury's tombstone and that part of actor Samuel L. Jackson's infamous quote from Pulp Fiction is on it? "The path of the righteous man..." Ezekiel 25:17

In Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), we meet The Collector, and included in his museum of oddities are Howard the Duck, Cosmo the Spacedog, and even a slug from one of the director James Gunn's other movies, Slither. Click here to read more about what makes these easter eggs so much fun.

The soundtrack for this movie reached #2 on the billboard chart and went 6x platinum.
