2003 US Theatrical release list?
January 27, 2004 10:42 AM   Subscribe

Is there anywhere I can get a list of movies released theatrically in the US for 2003? I want to put together a Top 10 list, but can't remember many movies I saw this year. (Maybe that's a sign...) I know that you can get IMDB to list movies by year, by that lists EVERYTHING, and is much too long a list to wade through.

You might find BoxOfficeMojo helpful. (link goes to top 150 grossing movies of 2003)

My friend Chris put together a list on his site. It looks like he last updated it December 8, but has the late December releases listed.

This is always tricky, because there are so many shifting definitions. IMDb is highly unreliable. This one is probably the best, because Oscar eligibility tends to be the standard for what "year" something opened. (But it's flawed as well; Chaplin won Best Score in 1973 for Limelight because that was the first time it played LA, even though the film is from 1952.) In this case, one problem is that the studios determine whether a movie is eligible or not; so on the AMPAS list I linked to, you'll notice that Matrix Reloaded is missing, despite having come out this summer, because Warner Bros. didn't want to split the franchise's votes between that and Revolutions. (You read that right: The #4 grossing film of the year was not eligible for an Oscar.)

This list from rottentomatoes.com might help, it's the 100 best reviewed films of 2003.

This is a good website, and it has every single movie by it's release date, which i like.
