Released back in 2001, Ridley Scott's Hannibal was a massive box office success, and at the time it was the biggest-opening box office for an R-rated film in history. The follow-up to The Silence of the Lambs brought in a whopping over $350 million worldwide, and years later, led to the NBC series of the same name.
