There’s nothing quite like the anticipation of a multi-mega-million-dollar movie making its theatrical debut… and nothing like the agony of watching it go down in flames. Not every big-budget Hollywood blockbuster makes bank at the box office, and sometimes, studios guess wrong about what will and will not perform. Here are some of the films that have been surprising disappointments…

    Simple lessons to be realized:
    1. DON'T CAST TAYLOR KITSCH
    2. Know that the media is going to DESTROY ANY attempt at a patriotic movie (aka Battleship)
    3. Don't cast 'blackface' (Johnny Depp as a Native American…you know that was going to be attacked by the press)
    4. Possibly ADVERTISE the movies better (I found 47 Ronin on Redbox AFTER it had already been at the theater!)

    I liked all these movies. Except Mars needs mom's I've never seen and fantastic 4 sucked.

    Where do they spend so much money. There's something wrong with those figures. The producers inflate the amount.

    So a bunch of perverts boycott a movie and everyone is supposed to kowtow to their twisted values, I don't think so comrade.

    Looper faisl to see the greater picture. i have an idea why these movies failed: Lack of Seriousness, lack of Darkness. i dotn want a fucking Disney fairytale from the inventors of the Matrix. i want a Deep dark depressing futurisic universe. i dont want cuddely alien pets whose sole purpose is ticke a laugh out of the audience in John Carter, i dont want unrealistic behaviour and physics from a movie about real life Battleships. All these films tried to please everyone and thus failed to please anyone. focus on one thing. you want to make a movie about Battleships and aliens? Make the battleships realistic, make the behaviour of the crew realistic, go nuts with the aliens, thats fine. thats exactly why Independence Day worked. the Humans were relatable the flying was close enough that you didnt have to shake your head. and sorry but, going with a Fantastic 4 movie after Fantastic 4 failed to compete against other franchises? yeah not a smart move.

    You think they'd realise a name like "Mars needs mom's" just sounds lame.

    Why did they not call the John Carter movie "A Princess of Mars"?
    Edgar Rice Burroughs must have spun in his grave when they released his classic story with that title.
    Still, it was an entertaining movie for certain age groups and has since become a cult favorite if not a classic. Apparently there is real talk of a sequel but lets hope they don't fumble the marketing like they did wit the first one.

    Hollywood lies about how much they spend on movies, a lot of the budget is paying themselves, even a record breaking box office movie they claim they didn’t make a profit, tax evasion at its finest, also why does Hollywood needs thousands of people to make one movie the credits go on for ever so if they really not making money, idk maybe they need to cut 75% off the staff

    This video is bogus –

    Battleship – Made 300$m Worldwide – It made a profit of 91$m
    John Carter was made less than budget predictions and wrapped 3 months early. Made 284$m Worldwide with a profit of 34$
    WaterWorld – Made 263$m Worldwide – It made a profit of 88$ for Universal
    Lone Ranger – Made 260$m Worldwide – It made a profit of 45$n for Disney
    Jupiter Ascending – Made 184$m – It made a profit of 8$ for Warner Bro's

    You have to admit though that casting Keanu Reeves as the “Half-Breed” is an amazing casting choice XD

    Maybe I just have bad tastes, but I liked all of these movies… Except fantastic 4…. And Mars needs moms.

    It surprises me that these all did that poorly.
