Other Domestic Legs records: Front-Loaded Opening Weekend - Leggiest Opening Weekend - Leggiest Movies

This list shows the most front-loaded movies, as measured by the percentage of the total domestic box office for each film that was generated during their opening weekend. The higher the percentage, the more front-loaded the film. For this chart we consider movies that had a domestic release since 1997, and that opened in at least 1,000 theaters. To avoid skewing the results, movies that were released in the past two months are not included.
