I don't know about when it comes to general income including merchandise, DVDs etc though. I doubt much is ever going to beat Star Wars.
That list is total gross, but of course if a ticket now costs $10-14 as opposed to $2 when Star Wars was out (I think) of course it will make money faster. You have to adjust for inflation.

Here's the list of inflation adjusted movie grosses (domestic)

It should really be tallied by number of tickets sold, kind of like gold and platinum records are based on numbers sold, not total dollar amounts.
