Almost 30 years after its release, Titanic still holds several of the impressive records it broke at that time, one of which involves Leonardo DiCaprio and is quite surprising. Titanic came out in 1997 and became an instant classic. The movie was not only a great display of visual and special effects that were groundbreaking for that time, but it was also a passionate and dramatic love story that everyone loved. That combination is what made the film more than just a financial hit.

After its release, Titanic broke several records, many of which have already been overtaken by other movies, such as being the highest-grossing film ever or the film with the highest Christmas Day gross, for instance. However, almost 30 years later, Titanic amazingly still holds some of those incredible records. For example, its 11 Oscars make it the movie with the most wins in the Academy Awards, which it shares with Ben-Hur and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. However, there is a particular record involving Leonardo DiCaprio’s career that Titanic also still holds.

Titanic Is Still Leonardo DiCaprio’s Only $1 Billion Movie

Although Leonardo DiCaprio had already had some very important roles before Titanic and had already received an Oscar nomination at the age of 19, James Cameron’s blockbuster gave him worldwide fame and spawned an amazing career packed with great acting performances and successful movies. It is hard to think of a movie starring DiCaprio being a box office failure. However, Titanic holds a very interesting record in his career. After 27 years and quite an impressive run, Titanic is not only Leonardo DiCaprio’s highest-grossing film, but it is also the only one that has surpassed a billion dollars at the box office.Considering DiCaprio’s fame and how popular his movies are, it is hard to believe that there is not another $1 billion film in his filmography. What is more impressive about this is not that Titanic is his only $1 billion movie, but the fact that the rest of Leonardo DiCaprio’s movies are miles away from that number. His second best-grossing film is Christopher Nolan’s Inception, which grossed $728 million; In his top five, there is also The Revenant, with $532 million, Django Unchained, with $449 million, and The Wolf of Wall Street, with $389 million.

Why Leonardo DiCaprio Hasn’t Had A $1 Billion Movie Since Titanic

Leonardo DiCaprio as Ernest Burkhart frowns at Jesse Plemons as Tom White in Killers of the Flower Moon.

Even though DiCaprio’s films are usually successful, they are not massive blockbusters. Looking at the highest-grossing films, the list includes action blockbusters and franchise installments, such as Avatar, Avengers: Endgame, and Jurassic World which are not DiCaprio’s type of movies. Although starring in one of the biggest blockbusters ever, such as Titanic, spawned his brilliant career, he has focused on often deeper and more challenging projects, most of which do okay at the box office but do not become major hits.
