These select movies accomplished what few films ever have; they became international hits with relatively meager box office contributions from American and Canadian moviegoers. Despite wide domestic theater releases (700+), all accumulated 25% or less of their total worldwide box office from North American audiences. In spite of this, all of these films raked in at least $250 million in worldwide ticket sales. By comparison, most blockbusters typically in the past got a kick start of about 35-55% of their worldwide gross from North American moviegoers alone.
