10 Movies You Didnít Realize Were Big Hits In 2013
Mama$146,428,180 on a $15,000,000 budget.
Any given yearís biggest returns on investment are often turned in by micro to low budget horror movies that use smart, effective advertising to score big opening weekends. Several films followed that example very closely during 2013, but none of them were able to have as wide of an impact as Mama, a rare example of a film with a January release date that was both well-reviewed and very lucrative. The film stayed in the top ten for an entire month, and it opened a ton of doors for director Andres Muschetti who was recently offered the Mummy reboot. Altogether, I would say thatís enough to call the film a pretty damn big hit.
