Domestic Gross: $120 million
Adjusted for Inflation (2011): $148 million

“Seabiscuit” is a 2003 film based on the book of the same name. The movie is about the racing career of the titular horse, whose small size makes people underestimate him and whose surprising success at the racetrack turns him into a star during the Great Depression.

The movie features Tobey Maguire, and it received mixed reviews upon its release. Audiences felt differently, however, and they lined up to see it. The film was nominated for seven Academy Awards, but didn’t take any of them home.
