Movies with Leggiest Opening Weekend



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

This list shows movies with the leggiest opening weekend, as measured by the ratio between the total for the (3-day) opening weekend and the amount the movie earned on its opening day. The higher the ratio, the better the legs. For this chart we consider movies that were released on a Friday, and that opened in at least 1,000 theaters.
