Top-Grossing Movies That Never Got a Wide Release

"Stacker consulted box office data on The Numbers and ranked the top 50 highest-grossing movies that never got a wide release, despite their success. Ties are broken by digits of box office data that are not shown. IMAX-only releases, one-time releases, and special event nature documentaries were not considered. We're diving into some of the reasons why these films didn't get a wide release in the first place, and looking at how they managed to succeed anyway."
