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.
