Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND has become the moviemaker's most successful film, landing him a place in the all-time top 10 box office hits.
The Disney movie has made $928.9 million (£580 million) around the world, and, as a result, has nudged The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers out of the top 10.
James Cameron's Avatar became the world's highest-grossing movie earlier this year (10) after ending Titanic's decade-long reign at the top of the global box office.
