Removed this from events:

which just seems to be worthless trivia. It's one thing if something happened on the set (ie, Twilight Zone deaths) but just to state filming has begun seems way too "fan-boy" esque.
This is also seems less then encyclopedia worthy:

Also, removed all the exposition from the list, most of which was already stated in the lists of awards above it. It is supposed to be a list of films, if someone wants to know who directed it, etc they can follow the link QED. RoyBatty42 01:19, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Comedy short film series[edit]

What is this section? -- Jeandré (talk), 2009-07-20t20:33z

Deleted. No one's explained what it's supposed to be, it doesn't seem to appear on other "... in film" pages, and it doesn't seem to have any purpose other than listing three actors. Optimus Sledge (talk) 12:24, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Highest grossing films[edit]

There is a big error in the table. It lists "Romancing the Stone" as the fourth highest grossing film that year and states the figure as $148,168,459. However on the "Gremlins" page it states that "Gremlins" was the fourth highest grossing film that year and states the exact same figure. On the "Romancing the Stone" page it states an entirely different number as the gross of that film. This is a clear error the requires fixing, but I don't have an account and don't want to make one. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:35, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Number 1 Highest Grossing Film[edit]

Ghostbusters surpassed Beverly Hills Cop as number 1 highest grossing film from 1984 after it's films re-release the following year. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:04, 21 June 2014 (UTC)


The Terminator's gross that is shown is its international one, domesticaly, it only made around 38 million, far from being placed in the top 10. This list needs revision.
