Best R rated movies of all time

R- Rating

With how amazing movies can be they can often make a fortune just on their opening night. But history has shown us that the box office often isn't kind to R-rated movies. 

Among the 50 highest-grossing movies of all time, only 3 are R-rating films. The fact that only adults can watch them often means that they don't appeal to a wider audience like most other movies. 

Air Force One

Air Force one made some serious money at the box office when it hit theatres in 1997. Harrison Ford stars in this R-rated film where the president is set upon by terrorists.

The hijacking of the plane forces the president to roll up his sleeves and get hands-on with the baddies. The film raked in 173 million dollars.


"Us" is a relatively new movie on this list. It's about doppelgangers of a family who terrorize them. The director also directed "Get Out" a few years before. 

Jordan Peele's genius showed in this film and it ended up being the highest-grossing film of 2019 and got a whopping 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.
