NOTE: ""Fantasy"" refers to movies about a quest set in a fantastical world, be it this one with supernatural tendencies or another one a la Middle-earth. Technically speaking, the Star Wars movies are fantasy, but it's (falsely) perceived as sci-fi. Hence, its inclusion on this list would not be illuminating in how this genre fares at the box office. If there are any movies that you think should be on this list, e-mail us at mail@boxofficemojo.com.
