9. Lion King (3 records)

Lion King may have come out way back in 1994, but it has managed to hold onto 3 records which is pretty darn impressive, especially for an animated movie. In the movie, Rafiki may have held up tiny baby Simba up for the world to see, but he might as well have been holding up giant bags of cash! You think a lovely bunch of coconuts is great?! Try a lovely bunch of world records! Lion King took the world by storm and had everyone singing it’s tunes which is why, to this day, it still holds the records for Rated G at $422,783,777; Top Opening Theater Average at $793,377; and Top Theater Average at $793,377.

8. American Sniper (4 records)

Topping Lion King’s 3 records, American Sniper currently holds 4 records of its very own. Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Bradley Cooper as the sniper himself, the war-based film received both praise and critiques alike, both probably lending to the fact that it now holds the records for Winter Opening at $89,269,066; January Opening at $89,269,066; and Martin Luther King Opening at $107,211,457; and Widest Release – R Rated at 3,885.
