* The Music/QueenLatifah film ''Girls Trip'' opened with 34 million dollars at the U.S. box office, coming in second place to the blockbuster ''Film/{{Dunkirk}}'' and easily beating out the big budget sci-fi spectacle ''Film/ValerianAndTheCityOfAThousandPlanets''. More significantly, it managed to be a hit despite analysts noting the poor track record of other comedies released that summer, such as the Creator/WillFerrell / Creator/AmyPoehler vehicle ''The House'' or the Creator/ScarlettJohansson movie ''Film/RoughNight''.

* ''Film/GetOut'' was seen as a long shot, as it was an indie horror film about race, starred a [[Creator/DanielKaluuya largely-unknown]] (at least in the U.S.) actor as the lead, and was director Jordan Peele's first movie. It opened at #1 at the box office and garnered rave reviews, and has since grossed 76 million dollars against a meager 5 million dollar budget.

Note that this trope is often a SelfFulfillingProphecy. Marketeers are afraid that majority people might not be interested in a minority-centric work since it might deal with hard-to-relate themes. This can cause filmmakers to make their movies about those themes since they may be relatable to only minorities to begin with and thus implement themes they feel are important, causing many such movies to in fact feature such themes, thus usually keeping majority people away... and so on. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement So please be discerning when adding or editing examples.]]

* Hirohiko Araki mentioned in an interview that he believes one of the reasons the first two parts of ''JojosBizarreAdventure'' didn't make as much of a splash as the third, which starred the [[ButNotTooForeign half-Japanese, half-American]] Jotaro Kujo, was because they featured wholly European protagonists during a time when Japanese audiences were heavily against such characters. Since then, with the exception of ''[[JojosBizarreAdventureSteelBallRun Steel Ball Run]]'' every protagonist in the series has some measure of Japanese heritage in order to avert this trope.
