List of highest-grossing non-English films

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

These are the highest-grossing, primarily non-English language films in the world. The vast majority of highest-grossing non-English titles are in Chinese.

Film and language[edit]

In terms of gross revenue, English-language films are vastly over-represented among the highest-grossing films of all time. Among the top 100 highest-grossing films, 97 of them are in English, with the other three being the Chinese films The Battle at Lake Changjin, Wolf Warrior 2 and Hi, Mom.[1]

One factor behind the relative financial success of English-language films is because of the function of the English language as the world's lingua franca. It is the first language of 400 million people, the second language of another 400 million, and a foreign language of an additional 700 million. It is thus understood by 1.5 billion people,[2] which is almost 20% of the world population. The Chinese language, especially the standard variant, has over twice as many native speakers as English, but much fewer foreign-language speakers.[3]

Another major factor is the difference in cinema box office ticket prices around the world, with developing countries and newly industrialized countries having lower ticket prices than developed countries, due to lower currency value, less average income and lower living costs.[4] A number of Chinese, Indian and Soviet films sold more than 100 million tickets at the box office,[5][6][7] but at relatively low ticket prices compared to Hollywood films[5][8] and thus limiting the amount of gross revenue generated.[5] Up until the 1990s, US and UK ticket prices were significantly greater than Chinese, Indian and Soviet ticket prices.[a] As of 2017, the average cinema ticket price was $9 in the United States,[9] compared to CN¥35 ($5.10) in China[10] and 134.38 ($2.06) in India.[11]

As of 2022, the world's largest market in terms of box office admissions is India.[12] The former Soviet Union (before it dissolved in 1991) had a similarly large box office market,[13] with relatively lower ticket prices than North America due to lower living costs.[8] Indian films had a large overseas audience in the Soviet Union between the 1950s and 1980s,[14] and were significantly more popular than Hollywood films there.[15][16]

Box office admissions[edit]

A number of non-English markets have traditionally given box office figures in ticket sales (such as France, South Korea and the Soviet Union), rather than gross revenue, thus only ticket sales numbers are available for a number of older non-English films in various markets. This list varies from revenue-based rankings due to the huge difference in the price of admission tickets from place to place as well as from one moment in time to another.

The following table lists known estimated box office ticket sales for various high-grossing non-English films that have sold at least 100 million tickets worldwide.

Note: Some of the data are incomplete due to a lack of available admissions data from a number of countries. Therefore, it is not an exhaustive list of all the highest-grossing non-English films by ticket sales, so no rankings are given.

This is beyond my expectations, no matter critics or leading comrades, almost no one thinks this is a good or relatively good film (of course there is no problem with the content), I don't seem to have seen it. What reviews mention this film, but from January 1983 to June 1984, the audience was 199.5 million; the audience for the other films: "Blue Shield Safe", 170 million; "A Policeman with a Special Identity", 130 million; "At Middle Age", 120 million; "She an", December 1983 to June this year, 120 million; "Dong Fangjian", 100 million people; "Our Niu Baisui", 110 million; "Little Deyuelou", 88 million; and two films co-produced with Hong Kong, "Shao lin di zi", 490 million; "Young Heroes", from January to June 1984, 260 million. I calculated, except for the two co-production films, the status of the top 10 films is probably like this: two martial arts films, accounting for 969.83 million; four thrilling films, or underground struggles or detective films, 630 million; comedy films, 390 million; and "At Middle Age", 120 million, plus two co-productions, 12 films with an audience of about 3 billion.]
