Gallery: Biggest Box Office Hits of the 1980s (24/7 Tempo)

a little boy standing in front of a building: Big hair, synthesizer-heavy music, pastel clothes, Reaganomics, and the fall of the Iron Curtain...What a mashup the 1980s were. For a peek at how the styles and events of the era were reflected in popular culture, consider the biggest box office hits of that decade. After the rise of independent filmmaking and the so-called New Hollywood in the 1960s and ‘70s, blockbusters were the big story of the ‘80s. Action flicks pulled in big bucks as major franchises grabbed hold of audiences and began to forge strong, emotional connections with the public. Science fiction proved to be lucrative for movie producers, as moviegoers were drawn to the escapism of the “Star Wars” films and other fantasies. (These are the 23 best sci-fi movies about time travel.) Some comedies did well in the era (“Coming to America,” “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids”) as did some distinctly different views of the Vietnam War (“Platoon,” “Good Morning, Vietnam”). And as a harbinger of things to come, a couple of comic book characters began to make successful crossovers to the movies. Interestingly, from an economic perspective, only the top three movies on this list earned receipts (not adjusted for inflation) that would have put them on a par with the biggest box office hits since 2000.  Nonetheless, these were the undisputed box office champions of their time.

The original film — written and directed by Johnson, 47, and released in theaters in 2019 by Lionsgate — became a box office success with its A-list cast, including Craig, Chris Evans, Christopher Plummer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, LaKeith Stanfield and star Ana de Armas.

The film was born out of Johnson's love for Agatha Christie novels, and he set out to write his own whodunnit centering around the death of crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Plummer), which sets off a fight for his estate among his children and grandchildren.

Among the dysfunctions within the deceased's family, Det. Blanc (Craig) arrives to investigate the suspicious circumstances of Thrombey's death, with everyone a suspect.
