"Gross" here refers to "gross income" as opposed to "net income." Gross income shows how much profit a company earns. On the other hand, net income is the profit that remains after all expenses have been paid. Ex: The film is the highest-grossing box office comedy of all time. Ex: McGraw and Hill's country music tour became the highest-grossing country music tour ever.
