(AP Photo/Gregorio Borgia, File)Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” has officially made him the first director whose films have globally taken in over $10 billion, according to Box Office Mojo. And that worldwide gross total, approximately $10.01 billion, doesn’t even account for inflation.

When you look over his filmography, which includes “Jurassic Park,” “E.T.,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” Schindler’s List,” “Jaws,” and the entire “Indiana Jones” franchise, it’s hard to be completely surprised by the achievement.
