19. Coach Carter - $67,264,877

This is another movie based on a true story that focuses on a coach who aims to inspire his players to greater achievement, this time with Samuel L. Jackson as the hard-nosed leader. It wasn’t as successful as Remember the Titans, its most obvious predecessor, but considering that it has a contemporary setting and didn’t have the same uplifting feel, it did pretty well for itself. It’s one of the few basketball movies on the list, which is odd because the buzzer beater to win the game is one of the most cinematic moments in sports.
