Spielberg reaches $10bn box office milestone

By Tom Acres, News Reporter
Ready Player One has helped make Steven Spielberg become the first director to gross a total of $10bn at the worldwide box office.
The latest blockbuster from the legendary filmmaker - adapted from the cult novel by Ernest Cline - has proved a hit with audiences across the globe, with takings of $474.8m (€333.1m) since it opened last month.
It is likely to overtake the $481.8m (€338.2m) earned by Saving Private Ryan, for which Spielberg won the Academy Award for best director, and become his sixth biggest cinema moneymaker of all time.:: Spielberg: I have 'sad, low period' after films
Ready Player One came just over two months after the release of his political drama The Post, which has taken a more modest $174.4m (€122.4m) but was a big hit with critics - including Sky's Adam Boulton.With plenty of hits spanning multiple decades, Spielberg - whose next film is a fifth instalment in the Indiana Jones series - is way ahead of the next highest-grossing director, Peter Jackson, whose movies have totalled $6.5bn (€4.6bn).
He has had so many hits that some of his most iconic work, including Raiders of the Lost Ark and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, does not even make it into his top 10 highest-grossing films.So what does?
