Star Wars the Force Awakens - $2 billion+
It might be out on home media now (Star Wars: The Force Awakens + Bonus Features - Amazon ) but it's still playing around the world in various theaters, and has piled up a remarkable $2,064,142,689 billion in gross, which puts the movie just behind Avatar and Titanic in all time worldwide earnings for all films.

Batman V Superman crosses $800 million mark
After 20 days in release, Warners' big effort to radically expand the cinematic DCU has crossed over the $800 million mark, and looks to be headed for a grand total of somewhere in the mid $850 - 900 million range before ending it's theatre run. To date numbers put it at #8 in the worldwide superhero movie rankings, and it will climb a few more notches before it's all said and done. Any chance at a $1 billion dollar worldwide total is starting to look nearly impossible.
Deadpool is at $757K million, which puts it at #11, just behind Guardians of the Galaxy and out ahead of the Amazing Spider-Man reboot of 2012. Those numbers make Deadpool look particularly good because it's pulled in that money on an initial production budget estimate of only of $58 million. Compare that to Batman V Superman's reported production costs of approximately $400 million.
