Here's a chart of 2014's twenty-five highest grossing films (so far, clearly) tracked by Indiewire's box office charts.
14
Fox Searchlight "The Grand Budapest Hotel"

Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" easily tops the below list  of 2014's biggest indies, box office wise (and is now Anderson's highest grossing film ever), with nearly $60 million and counting. "Chef," "Belle," "America," "Begin Again," "Boyhood," "Ida" and "Snowpiercer" are among the other big winners so far, with some of them still going strong.

The list should evolve drastically into the the year's second half, with a much more aggressive specialty release schedule in place.

Note this list only includes North American grosses for specialty films -- indie, foreign and/or documentary -- that opened in limited release (initially under 500 screens) in 2014 and were released by an independent distributor or a studio specialty division. It also includes films that screened only as an Academy-qualifier in 2013 ("Tim's Vermeer,"  etc). Grosses as of August 19, 2014.
