Box Office Flops
A Database Of Films That Failed At The Box Office.
A CURE FOR WELLNESS
THE SPACE BETWEEN US
NO I CANNOT EVEN GO TO THE MOVIES TO SEE THE FLOPS. WHY IS THIS????????????? SEATS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE AND THERE IS NO OLD AGE OR HANDICAP DISCOUNT AND THE SEATS DO NOT ACCOMODATE THE HANDICAPED I HAVE A MEDICAL HANDICAP OF OBESITIES FROM MY GLANDS AND CANNOT FIT IN THE SEATS. I NEED A SPECIAL SEAT OR A COUCH AND YES THE AMERICAN WITH DISABILITIES LAW SAYS THE MOVIE THEATERS MUST ACCOMODATE. I HAVE WROTE A LETTER OF COMPLAINT THAT THEY MUST ACCOMODATE!
NOTE: I HAVE A HATEFUL CYBER STALKER. HE CAN SOMEHOW POST WITH MY VERY OWN NAME. PLEASE IGNORE HIS HATEFUL MOCKINGS.
Whoa, just take it easy man.
Predictions for movies that will flop this year from this point on: – Rings (It cost $33 million to make and it’s a sequel to a movie from 12 years ago.) – The Space Between Us (If the budget for this sci-fi movie is $50+ million, it is going to tank because of a lack of public interest.) – Collide (It’s been moved around multiple times and it has a $29.2 million budget. Nicolas Hoult is not a box office draw outside of franchises, About a Boy, and Warm Bodies. Remember Jack the Giant Slayer?) – Rock Dog (It already flopped in its native China, it has a $60 million budget with no big stars aside from J.K. Simmons, and it’s coming out two weeks after The Lego Batman Movie and a week before Leap! so competition will be tough.) – Leap! (The Weinstein Company hasn’t had a good track record lately with Jane Got a Gun, Hands of Stone, and Gold flopping. If this is promoted decently in the next month, it might do okay since it only has a $30 million budget.) – CHiPs (Depending on the budget, this one will probably get lost in the crowd. Based on the trailer, it doesn’t really stand out from other recent R-rated comedies. However, it being a comedy might be enough to become a mid-level hit.) – Life (The buzz is very weak on this one. It looks like an average sci-fi movie and it comes out the same weekend as Power Rangers which will most likely dominate that weekend. Sci-fi movies tend to have costly budgets and this one looks like it’s in the $50m-$65m range.) – Ghost in the Shell (I think the reviews are going to make it or break it for most people. It’s a crowded March and this one could get lost in the shuffle if it’s not well received.) – Spark (Power Rangers, The Boss Baby, and Smurfs: The Lost Village will still be playing when this one comes out.) – Unforgettable (Ironically, it looks like a forgettable thriller. Katherine Heigl hasn’t really been a box office draw for 7 years.) – Everything, Everything (The premise sounds like a gender-swapped Bubble Boy but if it was a drama.) – All Eyez On Me (This will probably be a great movie but it cost $45 million to make. Then again, it could surprise just like Straight Outta Compton did.) – Bad Dads (The House and possibly even Rock That Body will still be playing and a male spin-off of Bad Moms kinda defeats the purpose of what the original tried to accomplish.) – Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (The effects look impressive but if the story doesn’t connect with the general public, the $180 million price tag will hurt STX Entertainment greatly.) – The Dark Tower (July is crowded and may get overlooked. It’s been in development for a very long time and Matthew McConaughey has recently had 2 flops (Free State of Jones, Gold) but one big success (Sing).) – The Emoji Movie (The teaser trailer was received about as well as the first Ghostbusters trailer so I expect a big flop from Sony if the official trailer doesn’t turn audiences around on the concept.) – Baby Driver (This could fall in line with the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy or it could fall in line with Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It will probably be very funny but Edgar Wright is not a box office draw.) – Villa Capri (Broad Green Pictures has only one hit to their name: A Walk in the Woods. Golf movies have never been big box office hits and Morgan Freeman is becoming less of a draw nowadays.) – Renegades (This was supposed to come out last summer and now it’s coming out in September. Add to the fact that its budget is $40 million and it’s being dumped on Labor Day weekend and you’ve got a flop waiting to happen.) – Flatliners (The original wasn’t even a huge hit back in 1990. I don’t expect the remake to do better.) – The Commuter (I predict this one will fall closer to Run All Night than Non-Stop or Unknown due to competition from Blade Runner 2049 and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.) – The Star (Nativity movies have traditionally not done well at the box office. Admittedly, this one has the advantage of being animated, animal-focused, and boasting an all-star voice cast. However, Pixar will release Coco two weeks later.) – Murder On the Orient Express (Johnny Depp has been on a huge down turn lately.) – The Six Billion Dollar Man (Mark Wahlberg had a bad year at the box office last year with 2 well-received movies that audiences didn’t connect with. Plus, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. flopped two years ago when it tried to make a movie adaptation of a classic TV show.)
For The Space Between Us, STX reduced their exposure to under $4 million. It probably won’t lose them any money.
Valerian was produced by EuropaCorp. STX is merely distributing. If anyone will get hurt, its EuropaCorp.
I actually did know that.
I think EuropaCorp’s definitely going to reduce their exposure as much as possible, though. They already are getting other companies to buy large percentages of their own company in order to make sure they don’t have to deal with the potential fallout.
If the right marketing push is made for Valerian, I could see it being successful in the U.S. I think it’ll be a big hit in France because of brand recognition and most likely a big marketing push there.
It’s not tracking very well and it is getting some of the worst reviews so far this year. I didn’t notice it before but one of the writers of The Space Between Us also wrote Collateral Beauty. That’s not a good sign.
That writer should never work again.
Agreed. Collateral Beauty was one of the most mean-spirited dramas I’ve seen in a long time.
I read that the expenses with P & A were $ 20 million. That is, the STX will suffer some damage.
I have to say, I wasn’t expecting it to bomb this badly.
For Murder On the Orient Express, Johnny Depp may not be that important considering it’s an ensemble film and *(Sort-of spoilers for an 83 year old book and events that’ll happen in the first 20 minutes of the film)* he’s going to die pretty early in the film, considering his character is the victim implied in the title.
Oh, I realize that I could be wrong. It’s just some of my predictions. There is no trailer out and I don’t know what the budget is so I’m just going off of box office trends for that one.
Get ready to add a page for The Space Between Us. It has a $30 million budget and it made just $3.8 million in its opening weekend. I don’t expect the international numbers to save its fate either.
A Cure for Wellness. Budget : $30 million Opening: $4,2 million
Aw, you beat me to it. I was just typing that. xD Also, the budget was $40 million, not $30 million.
Since you added a page for Collide, you should probably add a page for Rock Dog. There’s no way it’s going to make back its $60 million budget. It even flopped in China where it was made.
Been working on it. will be up later today.
