Most $100 Million Movies Per Year



Other Domestic Misc records: Never No. 1 Domestic - Never Wide Domestic - Lowest No. 1 Domestic - Widest Opening Weekend

This chart contains for each year the number of $100 million, $200m, $300m, $400m and $500m movies at the domestic box office, sorted on the number of $100m movies.

We use the year a film was first released, which does not have to be the same year in which the milestone was reached. For movies released at the end of year, this could be the next year, and in some situations it was even a re-release later that caused a movie to reach a milestone.
