30 Low-Budget Movies That Made More Than Their Money Back
Donnie Darko was one of the first movies produced by Flower Films, Drew Barrymore‘s production company. The movie was one of the first to put Jake Gyllenhaal on the map and also starred his sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Drew herself. The film had a low budget of $4.5 million and although it definitely made its money back, it wasn’t to the same level as some of the other movies on this list, taking in $7.5 million on its initial release. In saying this, the movie later became a cult classic and is one of Jake’s most well-known roles thanks to its large following.
