This year's Sundance Film Festival may not have produced a "Little Miss Sunshine"-sized breakout yet, but just over six months after the festival wrapped, this year's crop already has outdone last year's at the box office. 

Two films -- "The Way, Way Back" and "Fruitvale Station" -- already have earned more than last year's top films out of Sundance: "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "The Words" and "Arbitrage." The highest grosser was "Beasts,'" which took in $12.7 million for Fox Searchlight.

And there are more 2013 offerings on the way.

The Linda Lovelace biopic "Lovelace" starring Amanda Seyfried debuts Friday, and Ashton Kutcher will portray Apple founder Steve Jobs in "Jobs," opening Aug. 16. "Ain't Them Bodies Saints," a Western romance starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, will roll out on Aug. 16, as well.

But Joseph Gordon-Levitt's R-rated sex-addiction comedy "Don Jon" may have the most commercial appeal of all.
