10 Biggest Christmas Blockbusters of All Time

8. National Treasure: Book of Secrets
Year released: 2007
Christmas Day take: $13.7 million

This is how much moviegoers loved Nic Cage's turn in National Treasure back in 2004. They not only waited three years for the follow-up, but shelled out on Christmas Day to sit through two hours of Cage pursuing a book that supposedly contains information on the Watergate tapes, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Apollo space program and Mount Rushmore and an ancient city of gold.

It was apparently worth the wait for holiday audiences, as the sequel went on to make $220 million in the U.S. The series never got a third installment, but it's hard to go wrong with a PG movie about American history that opens when most kids are home from school.
