RANKING: Here Are The Films That Have Spent The Most Weeks At Number 1

“The Hunger Games” finally lost its winning streak atop the box office this weekend. After spending four weeks at number one, the film lands 30th on the all-time chart for most consecutive weekends at the top spot.

However, four weeks is nothing compared to other titles who have claimed victorious at the box office for five, six and seven weeks in a row. One film blows all the others out of the water with a total of 15 consecutive weekends as the box office number one. Only one film has ever had 16 weeks at number one … and it’s not a James Cameron or Ridley Scott flick.

Compare the films with the most overall number one weeks to those with the most consecutive weeks at theatres below.
