Marvel Studios movies have become a force unto themselves in the 10 years that they've been around. When they come out in the theater, every other movie takes notice. You rarely see a major release open the same weekend as the newest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, frequently, Marvel movies end up at number one at the box office for multiple weekends, meaning that even when a film tries to give Marvel space, they sometimes still get squashed.

People only have so much money to spend on movies and so much time to see them, and so often that means ignoring other movies in favor of those incredibly popular superheroes. Unfortunately, that means that movies that are good, sometimes great, and might otherwise get recognized for that get totally overlooked. Here are five great movies that you totally didn't see because you were at the theater watching a Marvel movie.

The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys

Shane Black's The Nice Guys is everything that is great about Shane Black. It's hilarious fun combined with exciting action. Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe are as perfect together as any of Black's other big screen duos. It's a real shame that nobody saw this movie. Unfortunately, the audience that probably would have enjoyed it most was busy watching Captain America: Civil War in its third weekend. Marvel didn't actually win the box office this weekend, but it still did triple the business of The Nice Guys and took that weekend's action movie audience.
