Kalifornia Box Office: $2,395,231
Natural Born Killers Box Office: $50,282,766
Both of these films are based on the exact same real event. They both center on the murder spree couple Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate went on in the ‘50s. While the style and tone of each film is a bit different they both tell the same basic chain of events. They also both star Juliette Lewis as Fugate! Can you get more similar than that?! Natural Born Killers had Quentin Tarantino, Oliver Stone, and then-TV star Woody Harrelson all involved which likely contributed to its success.
