Wide releases of 2016: a handy list

2016toiletfire

The end of the year is a great time for people like me who love lists of things. Here’s a list of every wide-release film (600+ screens) that opened in the U.S. in 2016. Movies that opened small in 2016 and eventually expanded to wide release are included, as are movies (marked by an *) that are now in limited release but are scheduled to go wide in January.

There were 165 total (up from 155 in 2015). I saw 137 of them. How many did you see? (That’s a rhetorical question. Please don’t tell me.)
