10

At the end of most major American films, there's a number. I believe current films are running in the high 40000s. From a little bit of research, when the MPAA rates a film, they give it a unique number.

I've found an old list that seems to go up to 2010, but I'm wondering if there's an official list online somewhere that shows every number. I've been wondering for a while now if there'd be any friendly rivalry to grab number 50,000, which must be out soon ;)

To my understanding, no one has ever compiled a list of every single film they've stuck the number on. I'm sure, buried in a database somewhere, the MPAA knows, but it doesn't appear to have been released.

The nearest I'm aware of is this very eager fan who decided to research and list every film he could. It's still a work in progress, but all the numbers he has thus far can be found here: 50,000 movie challenge (link now dead).

I compiled a list of MPAA film numbers.

As it turns out, film 50000 doesn't actually exist. However, here are the surrounding items:

  1. Steve Jobs
  2. Roger Waters: The Wall
  3. The Veil
  4. In a Valley of Violence

There is no official list, but in the following site http://www.filmratings.com/ you can find the M.P.A.A. number

    +1 This is not a list but it is the official upstream source. Search through partial title or just rating & release year to get the full title, rating, reason and the certificate number.

    I think that is an official site, as it is linked from the MPAA website: motionpictures.org.

Richie's answer provides a relatively current list of titles with certificate numbers. Just to add to the answer: the MPAA Website has a Related Links section in the footer. One of those links points to filmratings.com.

If you search through all ratings and lists, you can come up with a list. Here are some of the results. Notice how some of the certificate numbers are alphanumeric instead of just numeric.
