... adjusting worldwide figures for inflation is an even bigger quagmire than adjusting US figures for inflation both because of unreliable figures and drastic variations in currency exchanges.

Or you can just pretend the title is Best Billion Dollar Blockbuster from the last 20 years.

This list gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. 

Pirates of the Caribbean 4 was that popular?   :-\
The answers you seek are in Norway.

PA answered the question. I looked at Domestic adjusted for inflation and it wasn't an interesting list.

OmNom also expresses my feelings very well. We can do better. We must do better. I remembered Alice and Transformers 3, but forgot there were two Pirates films on the list.

Obviously what you'd want to control for is purchasing power parity. :snob:
