Notes About This Information

Our records date back to November 2007, and include the movies that appeared in the Top 10 Movies report each weekend since. If the movie did not place in the top 10 movies for a week, it will not appear in the reports above.

When a movie drops out of the Top 10 and then comes back again, the gap is represented by a row marked with ⋮. Due to an error in the data that is supplied to us, the "Box Office Change" value for the subsequent week is cleared when that occurs.
