* Opening Weekend equals Fri-Sat-Sun. Movies that do not have a 3-day opening gross are not included on this chart. A movie is considered to be in wide release when it reaches 600 or more theaters. For movies that opened in limited release and later went wide, the wide date is used for the 1,000-3,000 charts. All movies opening in limited release (regardless if they later went wide) and shown on the less than 600 theaters chart.
^ Total Gross does not include additional releases, if any.
