When the The Force Awakens overtook Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all time in the US it wasn't just a victory for Star Wars, it was also a victory for Harrison Ford.
The man who is Han Solo became the highest grossing movie star of all time at the US box office. His films have grossed 4.7 billion dollars and counting lifting above the previous no.1, Samuel L. Jackson. The Hateful Eight star's movies have grossed a combined total of 4.67 billion dollars.
Ford's top 5 movies are:
1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
2. Star Wars
3. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
4. Return of the Jedi
5. The Empire Strikes Back
Jackson's top 5 meanwhile, are:
1. The Avengers
2. Avengers: Age of Ultron
3. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
4. Iron Man 2
5. The Incredibles
Considering Jackson is signed up with Marvel to appear as Nick Fury in at lease the next couple of Marvel movies and now that Ford's involvement with Star Wars (SPOILER ALERT!!!) seems to be at an end, one would expect Jackson to claw himself back to top spot. Then again, if Ford has another outing as Indiana Jones lined up then all bets are off.
