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.
