Which was the first movie to make 1 billion?

James Cameron directed, wrote, produced, and co-edited Titanic, a 1997 American epic romance and disaster film. It became the first movie to gross over $1 billion worldwide in just 74 days, on March 1, 1998. It is based on reports of the sinking of the RMS Titanic and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as members of various social classes who fall in love aboard the ship during its ill-fated maiden voyage, incorporating both historical and fictionalized components.

Cameron began filming the Titanic in 1995 when he shot footage of the actual shipwreck. The picture was co-financed by Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox, with the former handling North American distribution and the latter handling worldwide distribution. With a production budget of $200 million, it was the most expensive film ever made at the time. Titanic was a critical and economic triumph when it was released on December 19, 1997, and it has since won countless accolades.
