Top movies of 1979

In a recent post I reminded you all of that great movie ‘Alien’ that came out in 1979 – can you believe it was that long ago?  But Alien was not the top grossing movie of the year, not by a long chalk.  Way ahead of the rest of the pack was ‘Kramer vs Kramer’.

Here’s a list of the top five grossing movies for 1979:

Kramer vs Kramer – US$106m

Rocky II – US$85m

Apocalypse Now – US$83m

Star Trek: The Motion Picture – US$82m

Alien: US$80m

And the trailer for that top movie:
