The Domestic Market is defined as the North American movie territory (consisting of the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Guam).

Note: the records on this page only consider movies that were initially released in less than 1,000 theaters and did not have any expansion of more than 1,000 theaters in one week. We only consider movies that were released in 1995 or later, and do not consider movies that only had an IMAX release.

This table is updated daily to reflect the latest studio reports.

Note: This chart is adjusted for ticket price inflation. The gross is estimated based on how much the movie would have made if it sold as many tickets today as when it was originally released. The chart takes into account re-releases during the life of the movie.
