The following is a list of the top opening weekends of all-time (the 101 films that have had a $70+ million opening weekend) and the corresponding multipliers those films had (i.e. total domestic gross divided by opening weekend gross). Multipliers given for Friday openers only (weekday openers are unfortunately not comparable). This list is as of July 4th, 2017.
