2010 movie revenue

What's the way to make big bucks in movies these days? The answer is to aim your film at teenagers and younger children. All of the top 20 films of 2010 were rated PG, PG-13 or, in the case of Toy Story: 3, G. The highest grossing R movie was Shutter Island at #19.

Avatar = $547.8 million
Toy Story: 3 = $415 million
Alice in Wonderland = $334.2 million
