Can anyone tell me the top 5 most popular film stocks in use today for both 35mm and 16mm commercial cinematography, or know where I can find this information? Any details on why these stocks are the most popular would also be helpful. Thanks.

I would guess that 5218 is the most popular, but that's just based on what I read and see. If you want real #'s you should contact Kodak and Fuji and see what stocks they're selling the most and how many feet.

Yes, they always say that their basic 500T stock is the biggest seller. After that, it would probably be the next stock slower, like 200T (or 250T in Fuji's case) and 250D.
