10 Biggest Movie Flops of 2012
 

 

[pic - click to view]


Forbes just released their list of the year’s 10 biggest flops (defining loss here as a percentage of budget, rather than total loss), which you can see below. The year is almost over, so there aren’t many films left that can out-bomb these bombs. All that’s left are Anna Karenina, Life of Pi, Twilight, Red Dawn, Rise of the Guardians, Silver Linings Playbook, Hitchcock, k!lling Them Softly, Lay the Favorite, Playing for Keeps, The Hobbit, Hyde Park on the Hudson, The Guilt Trip, Zero Dark Thirty, Jack Reacher, Les Mis, Django, and Promised Land. Phew, okay, that’s actually a lot. But I believe in you, Red Dawn.

We used data from Box Office Mojo to see which films earned the smallest percentage of their budgets at the box office. Keep in mind that to begin to even imagine breaking even a film needs to earn at least twice its production budget at the box office. These 10 films didn’t come close. [Cloud Atlas is still in theaters, so it doesn't technically count yet, but I included it anyway.]

1. “The Oogieloves,” (Box office: $1 million; production budget: $20 million)

2. “A Thousand Words,” (Box office: $20 million; production budget: $40 million)/ “Cloud Atlas” (Box office: $24 million; production budget: $100 million)

3. “Dredd” (Box office: $28 million; production budget: $50 million)

4. “Big Miracle” (Box office: $25 million: production budget: $40 million)

5. “Wanderlust” (Box office: $21 million; production budget: $30 million)


6. “Rock of Ages” (Box office: $56 million; production budget: $74 million)

7. “People Like Us” (Box office: $12 million; production budget: $16 million)

8. “That’s My Boy” (Box office: $57 million; production budget: $70 million)

9. “Premium Rush” (Box Office: $29 million; prodcution budet: $35 million)

10. “Red Tails” (Box Office: $50 million; production budet: $58 million)

It was supposed to be the call to arms for Black Hollywood or the film that would prove blacks watch movies or some sh*t. Though I disagree with the bs surrounding it, I heard it just wasn't good and it lost 8 million dollars. As hollywood see's it, it's a flop.

Cloud Atlas was good, i actually just bought the book to see the diffrences and to try to understand it a litle more. 100 mill is crazy tho.

I guess the movie theater was packed that night i went cause most people didn't have power due to Sandy but i enjoyed the movie.

I hardly even heard about the movie tho, i just showed up at the theater and that was the only movie playing at that time lol.

^^^^^^^^Sandler lost it a long time ago. Although to me he was never truly funny. Hell his best movie to me was "Click" and it wasnt really a comedy.

I watched Cloud Atlas. That movie jumped between stories way too much. If they did it like the book, perhaps it would have been better. Where, they went half way through each story then started the next story then finished the second half of each story.

Red Tails was fu*king horrible, scene transitions in the middle of conversations and some cheesy a.ss acting from certain people, I was disappointed as fu*k, and That's my boy was funny, but Adam Sandler accent crap brought it down a lot
