We already have a pretty good idea as to which movies will top the 2015 box office -- Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: Episode 7 instantly come to mind -- but 2014 was dominated by comic book movies and Ms. Katniss Everdeen. Guardians of the Galaxy topped the yearly domestic box office, followed closely by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, and titles like Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past also earned big bucks. But what about the movies that were massive hits abroad, but never found their way to our cinemas? It turns out that’s a pretty bizarre list of titles.

Movies.com crawled through the box office results of multiple foreign countries to deduce (1) the top 10 highest grossing films of each country and (2) which of these were never released in the U.S. As it turns out, there are 30 titles that matched both sets of criteria, and some of them even beat the likes of Captain America and Guardians of the Galaxy in their home territories. To give you an idea of what types of films made the cut and beat out some of your favorites, here are the 10 weirdest foreign films to make bank in other countries in 2014.

Doktor Proktor's Fart Powder
Gross in Norway: $5,164,177

This might be the strangest movie of all time, let alone the strangest to earn a place amongst a country’s top 10 highest-grossing movies. Believe it or not, Doktor Proktor’s Fart Powder was adapted from a book that sees two children helping an eccentric scientist with his latest invention: a special powder that makes you fart so powerfully that you can propel your body into flight. The trailer and subsequent viral video promotions are hysterical to watch, and the movie itself was the second highest-grossing film in Norway.
