The highest-grossing movie of the ‘90s is none other than Titanic ($600 Million): the tragic love story centered on the privileged but lonely Rose and Jack, the poor but imaginative artist she meets. The chemistry between leads Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet was magnetic, and the scale of the film felt daunting. This earned Titanic critical acclaim as well as the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1998. The film also took in over $600 million at the domestic box office and, including re-releases, $2.1 billion worldwide.

While Star Wars ($431 Million) was originally an '80s staple, it would eventually sneak itself into the tail end of the '90s. George Lucas premiered the franchise's first prequel, Star Wars: Episode I, in 1999, and theaters everywhere filled with eager fans. Jurassic Park ($357 Million) absolutely destroyed the box office, bringing in $357 million upon its first release. The sci-fi adventure follows a group who must escape the genetically engineered dinosaurs that have been let loose on the island they're visiting. Forrest Gump ($329 Million) tells the tale of a slow-witted but sweet man whose life and romance occur alongside a slew of major United States events in the 20th century.

Disney’s stunning classic about a lion cub’s journey to take back his homeland became the highest-grossing animated film of the ‘90s, bringing in over $312 million — and with movies including Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin released that same decade, those numbers say a lot. The Lion King ($312 Million) makes the cut as the highest-grossing movie of the '90s. Independence Day ($306 Million): This 1996 sci-fi action film tells the story of aliens who attempt to take over and destroy the world on the Fourth of July weekend, as well as the humans who try to stop them. Dead people weren’t the only thing that The Sixth Sense ($293 Million) saw; it also eyed a giant box office score, bringing in $293 domestically upon its first release.

There are many movies that did very well in the 90s.
