  • Gore Verbinski He has made Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. Total Domestic Box Office: $1.308 Billion Per Film Average: $187 Million I would say that has some real value.
  • Do you mean who has made the most succesful and money making movies of all time? At the box office? Post production growth? Because then it would open up an entire new door to an answer. If i had to pick one director other than Spielberg ,who has made the most succesful and money making films of all time it would be. In no particular order. James Cameron Francis Ford Coppola Ridley Scott George Lucas Robert Zemeckis Ron Howard Tim Burton Chris Colombus These directors have been making films for a considerable time, and have directd movies that are some of the biggest box office hits ever. Plus, a select few have made movies that become immortal in different generations. Keep in mind that some of these listed above have Saga's in their filmography that have been some of the top grossing movies in history, even if the list of projects isnt that long.
