List of fastest-grossing films

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The success of a film is assessed by trade publications (such as Box Office Mojo and Variety) primarily by its theatrical box office earnings. Although several other revenue streams also generate revenue (such as theatrical exhibition, home video, television broadcast rights and merchandising) theatrical box office earnings take prominence, mostly because of the availability of the data compared to sales figures for home video and broadcast rights, but also because of historical practice. The success at the box office is measured in a number of ways, and these look at both the total gross as well as the speed with which that gross is attained. This list focuses on the latter. Included on this list are charts showing the films that reached certain milestones in the fastest time. All charts are ranked first by the number of days they took to reach the milestone, and second by their total gross on the day they exceeded the milestone. The charts are not adjusted for inflation, which does erode the achievements of earlier films.

Fastest-grossing films – US and Canada

Figures listed here do not take into account dates for limited-release premieres, but they do take into account the grosses from the previews or "midnight showings" that occur the day before the "official opening day".[a]

On this series of charts, films are ranked first by the number of days they took to reach the milestone, and second by their total gross on the day they exceeded the milestone. The milestones used by trade publications such as Box Office Mojo or The Numbers, are multiples of $50 million. Therefore, the charts below reflect these milestones. Note that in the case of a tie, the highest-grossing film is listed as the fastest-grossing film.

Notes

  1. ^ For example, Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiered on December 14, 2015 at three locations.[56] but it officially opened in North America on Friday, December 18. However, "midnight" shows occurred late on Thursday, and they totaled up to $57M.
  2. ^ The counts are as of July 2019.[58]
  3. ^ It passed the 50M threshold just from the Thursday night previews ($60 million).[62]
  4. ^ It passed the 50M threshold just from the Thursday night previews ($57 million), but this figure incorporates revenues generated from the "Star Wars Marathon Event" from 135 theaters in which all previous six Star Wars films were shown along with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Ticket prices cost $59.99 for all the films (including The Force Awakens) at an average of $8.57 per movie.[63][64][65]
  5. ^ It took 17 hours from the first release to reach the $100 million threshold.[68]
  6. ^ It took 21 hours from the first release to reach the $100 million threshold.[69]
  7. ^ The Sound of Music grossed $139 million upon its initial 1965 release,[70] and was the highest-grossing film until the 1967 re-release of Gone with the Wind,[71] which brought the latter's lifetime gross to $152 million.[60]
  8. ^ Jaws was the first film to gross $200 million. It grossed $190 million upon its initial 1975 release,[74] and a further $16 million gross rental from its 1976 reissue.[75]

The Birth of a Nation, costing an unprecedented and, many believed, thoroughly foolhardy $110,000, eventually returned $20 million and more. The actual figure is hard to calculate because the film was distributed on a "states' rights" basis in which licenses to show the film were sold outright. The actual cash generated by The Birth of a Nation may have been as much as $50 million to $100 million, an almost inconceivable amount for such an early film.
