We all know the movies that totally blew up the box office in 2015. Marvel Studios had another great year with both The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man; Furious 7 gave Paul Walker a rip-roaring send-off, and both Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens took turn breaking opening weekend box office records. But while you may know all of the big hits of the year, there are some titles that wound up being huge hits beneath everyone’s noses.

Either with the power of international box office, or with the bonus of low budgets (in some cases both), there are some films that came out this year that wound up making a huge profit without really getting that much fanfare. Now that 2015 is coming to a close, we’re going to shine a light on some of these movies… and a few of them may surprise you.

Hotel Transylvania 2
Hotel Transylvania 2
After a hot summer, September was a rather cool month for Hollywood… but that just allowed Hotel Transylvania 2 to actually outpace its predecessor both domestically and worldwide. The animated film carried a pretty hefty budget, with Sony Pictures Animation dolling out $80 million for the movie, but worldwide it ultimately brought in an impressive $449 million (nearly $100 million more than the first movie). Hotel Transylvania 3 is now on the way, and looking at the numbers it’s really no surprise why.
