What about El Mariachi? It made 100x its budget. Titanic made only 3x.

No, I think SANTO Y BLUE DEMON CONTRA DRACULA Y EL HOMBRE LOBO has earned that title.

I would see a movie called Mexican Titanic based on the title alone.

Is there some Senor Spielbergo equivalent of James Cameron that we don't know about?

Toy Story 3

It made $59 million in Mexico, making it the most successful movie in Mexico.

This thread made me laugh.

So, The Hangover 2 is probably the most successful Thai movie ever? Surpassing the Nicolas Cage version of Bangkok Dangerous?

I wonder what the most successful Canadian movie of all-time is?

The Titanic, since part of it was filmed here in Canada.

There is a rumor that a new director's cut will be released on Blu-ray after the 3D theatrical release.

In one special scene...

Spoiler:
Leonardo before drowning; he reaches for his pocket and gives Winslet a taco
