25 Great Films That Bombed at the Box Office

25 Great Films That Bombed at the Box Office
Martin Scorsese, Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, Jim Jarmusch, Denis Villeneuve, and Darren Aronofsky are all considered some of the greatest directors working today, but none of them are immune to a box office flop. Over the years, some of the best directors and many of the strongest films in any given year have failed to turn a profit. The box office can be a ruthless place and flops aren’t just reserved for bad films with poor reviews.

This year, box office bombs have ranged from the superhero tentpole “Dark Phoenix” to franchise reboot “Men in Black: International” and the Sundance sensation “Late Night.” In some cases, movies flop because they’re flat out bad movies. In other cases, a film might just be too challenging or weird to connect with a wide audience. Whatever the case may be, the following 25 films are all worth your time despite tanking

Why Audiences Are Only Going to Disney Movies

Why Audiences Are Only Going to Disney Movies
Julie Bikhman of Manhattan might buy the tickets, but when it comes to deciding what movie to see, her three young children are the ones calling the shots.

“We pick them,” her 11-year-old daughter Annie declares before heading into a screening of Disney’s live-action “The Lion King.”

“If it’s a Marvel movie, we know it’s going to be epic,” Annie’s twin sister Nina adds. “We know it will have a good story line and lots of action and adventure. Also, the villains are sick and there are a lot of plot twists.”

Annie and Nina weren’t born when audiences were first introduced to Disney’s “The Lion King” in 1994, but the two cajoled their mom and 14-year-old brother Nathaniel to AMC Lincoln Square on Wednesday to be among the first to see Simba’s grand return to the big screen. They loved the original cartoon

Jay And Silent Bob Reboot’s Ensemble Cast Includes Three Batmans

When asked to describe the newly-unveiled Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, Kevin Smith summed it up perfectly: “it’s a movie which makes fun of sequels and remakes and reboots while being all three at the same time.” Where do we sign up?

Hot off this morning’s decidedly Nsfw trailer and we have official confirmation that the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot features not one, not two, but three Batmen Batmans. You can count Ben Affleck among that exclusive club, though Kevin Smith refused to divulge further details of those other two Caped Crusaders.

Chances are the writer-director-star has made room in his ranks for Diedrich Bader, who voiced Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, while Kevin Conroy seems like another safe bet, given he previously worked with Kevin Smith on Yoga Hosers. And let’s face it: barring some unforeseen twist, we can effectively rule out Robert Pattinson,

Chris Hemsworth All Set To Return As The God Of Thunder In Thor 4

We’ve heard rumblings before now, but it’s sounding more official lately that Thor 4 is really happening. Unlike Iron Man, Captain America and Black Widow, Avengers: Endgame left the God of Thunder’s future in the McU more open-ended and suggested that there could be more Asgardian adventures to come in Phase Four. And a new report from The Hollywood Reporter tells us that this is definitely the case.

According to THR, Chris Hemsworth is expected to return to the role that made his career for a fourth entry in his own Marvel movie series. Much to fans’ joy, Thor 4 will be once again helmed by Taika Waititi, who gave the franchise a much-needed shot in the arm with 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. From what we understand, he’s signed a deal to write and direct the hero’s next film.

While this is certainly great news, it’s not terribly surprising.

Robert Downey Jr. Reportedly Made Quite the Paycheck on Avengers: Endgame, But One Star Made a Bit More This Year

In not so surprising news, it turns out that Robert Downey Jr. made a buttload of cash while making the film that would be his last in the McU. He wasn’t the only one who took home a hefty paycheck, but it was reportedly the largest.

In a report from Forbes, the film made a total worldwide gross of $2.77 billion, which is still climbing since the film was re-released with extra footage. Domestic gross has hit $848 million, making Endgame the second-highest-grossing film ever worldwide.

In the list of the stars on the Forbes list who made the most this year, Rdj did make a reported $66 Million on his farewell run. The star who made a bit more last year was his Avengers: Endgame co-star, Chris Hemsworth, who made a reported $76.4 Million in the last year, except the caveat to that is his paycheck isn’t solely from his role as Thor.

Can ‘The Farewell’ Become a Summer Box Office Breakout?

Can ‘The Farewell’ Become a Summer Box Office Breakout?
A24’s “The Farewell” lit up the specialty box office with a stellar limited debut, making its performance the one bright spot in an otherwise lackluster weekend for the movie business.

“This is the blockbuster of the indie world this weekend,” said Paul Dergarabedian, a senior media analyst at Comscore.

The studio opted for a platform release, bringing the comedic drama directed by Lulu Wang to a handful of theaters before slowly expanding it across the country in an effort to drum up enthusiasm and let buzz build. It’s the kind of deliberately paced rollout that the company previously deployed successfully with the likes of “Moonlight” and “Lady Bird.” “The Farewell” collected $351,330 from four locations in New York and Los Angeles. Those ticket sales translate to a mighty $87,832 per theater — the best per-screen average of the year to date.

Box-Office Weekend: Spider-Man Repeats on Top!

This week’s box-office weekend was essentially a repeat of last week, at least for the first two spots, as both Sony’s Spider-Man: Far from Home and Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4 held firm in the first and second spots of the top ten respectively. Spider-Man: Far from Home added $45.3 million over the weekend to bring its two-week domestic total to $274.5 million. Meanwhile, Toy Story 4 tossed another $20.7 million into its coffers to give the animated film a domestic four-week tally of $346.4 million.

Two new films to the top ten finished in third and fourth place respectively. The horror film Crawl took in $12 million, laying claim to third place while the comedy Stuber earned $8 million and the bragging rights to fourth place in this week’s top ten. In its third week of release, the Beatles fable Yesterday dropped from third to fifth place with $6.8 million over the weekend,

Box Office: ‘Crawl’ Slithers to $1 Million on Thursday Night
Parmount’s alligator disaster movie “Crawl” has opened with a solid $1 million in Thursday night previews in North America while Fox’s buddy comedy “Stuber” took in $750,000 on Thursday.

The two newcomers are both expected to finish far behind Sony’s second weekend of “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which is pegged to take in between $35 million and $45 million. Tom Holland’s superhero adventure, the 23rd entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has earned $220 million in its first nine days in North American theaters. Overseas, the movie has generated $392 million for a global tally of $613 million.

Disney’s fourth frame of “Toy Story 4” should take second place in the $20 million to $25 million range this weekend. The newest entry in the 24-year-old animated comedy franchise has generated $320 million in its first 20 days in North America.

“Crawl” is likely to finish third with around $10 million when it launches in 3,170 venues. It’s also debuting in 20 foreign markets.

Jesse Eisenberg, Director & Cast Talk The Art of Self-Defense [Exclusive]

Jesse Eisenberg, Director & Cast Talk The Art of Self-Defense [Exclusive]
It's been one heck of a summer moviegoing season so far. Sure, we've had big hits like Avengers: Endgame, but largely, many of the blockbusters that studios were banking on, such as Men In Black: International and Godzilla: King of the Monsters, have failed to generate enough buzz in order to become true box office successes. Yet, there are several smaller movies coming down the pipeline this season that may offer something these big movies can't. Enter The Art of Self-Defense.

I had the chance to see this movie back when it debuted at SXSW earlier this year. It's certainly not your typical summer affair and it's certainly not for everyone. That said, those who are a little worn out when it comes to half-baked sequels may be in for a treat here. It's a totally bizarre, unhinged, dark comedy from the mind of writer/director Riley Stearns. He's assembled a top-notch ensemble cast,

Sony Pictures Buys Nurulize, a Virtual Production Software Startup (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Sony Innovation Studios has acquired Nurulize, a startup whose software lets users edit, color and enhance volumetrically captured images in a real-time collaborative environment.

Terms of the acquisition aren’t being disclosed. Under the deal, Nurulize’s 12 employees are joining Sony Innovation Studios, which the company launched last year to give producers a way to virtually capture physical sets and use those digital assets in a variety of ways.

Nurulize’s Atom View software “enables us to integrate the highest-quality volumetric data capture with traditional workflows for film, television, and gaming, ushering a new method of content creation — the blending of the digital and the real — in truly innovative ways,” said Glenn Gainor, president of Sony Innovation Studios and head of physical production for Screen Gems.

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Box Office: Why Tom Holland’s Latest Adventure Triumphed
Sony’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home” might not have saved the summer from box office doldrums, but its successful start lifted the spirits of a movie business that was in a depressive state.

The superhero adventure, starring Tom Holland as the masked web-slinger, opened ahead of the July 4th holiday and collected a mighty $185 million during its first six-days in North American theaters. Overseas, the latest Marvel blockbuster continued its rollout at the international box office with $395 million in ticket sales to date, putting “Spider-Man: Far From Home” at $580 million worldwide, just shy of the $600 million mark after 10 days of release.

“It’s not all gloom and doom,” said Paul Dergarabedian, a senior media analyst at Comscore. “This is an emotional boost for the industry, even if we’re playing catchup on the year to date deficit.”

Indeed, a number of underperforming franchises, remakes and spinoffs have ticket sales down 8% behind last year,

Bo Report: ‘Spider-Man’ sequel soars while Hutchence documentary rocks

Kylie Minogue and Michael Hutchence in ‘Mystify: Michael Hutchence.’

Takings at Australian cinemas jumped last weekend thanks to the school holidays, Sony/Marvel’s Spider-Man sequel and Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4, while Richard Lowenstein’s Michael Hutchence documentary proved to be effective counter-programming.

Roadshow’s Us romantic drama After opened reasonably well considering its meagre Us results and Palace’s Argentinian rom-com An Unexpected Love appealed to upscale audiences.

The top 20 titles garnered $25.7 million, up 34 per cent on the previous frame, according to Numero.

Spider-Man: Far From Home captured $10.4 million in the first four days and $17.4 million since its launch last Monday. So the Jon Watts-directed sequel will surpass Spider-Man: Homecoming, which ended up with $25.6 million in 2017.

The superhero adventure starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, Samuel L. Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal and Aussies Remy Hii and Angourie Rice has generated $580 million worldwide in just 10 days.

‘Spider-Man’ Swings Into Record Books With Massive Holiday Opening [Box Office]
So far, the summer of 2019 has been a bit depressing for the film industry. Taking “Avengers: Endgame” out of the conversation (considering it’s a record-breaking behemoth that skews all numbers), the summer has been full of films that have a ton of expectations and end up disappointing at the box office, including “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” “Men in Black: International,” “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” and others.

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Swings to $185 Million Launch at Box Office
The Marvel-mania that has loaded Disney’s box office receipts has now turned its good fortunes to Sony, as “Spider-Man: Far From Home” has earned a six-day box office opening of $185 million, the largest ever for a film released over the Fourth of July weekend.

By comparison, the 2017 film “Spider-Man: Homecoming” earned $154 million in its first six days, representing a 20% increase for this sequel. Worldwide, the film opened in all territories except Italy after releasing in China and Japan last weekend, and now has a global total of $580 million.

For Sony, the success of “Far From Home” is a welcome reverse of fortune after the release of last month’s “Men In Black: International,” which has been relying on overseas grosses as it has only grossed $72 million so far in North America. “Far From Home” has set a new six-day opening record for the studio, as well as records

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Blasts Past Expectations With $32 Million Friday Box Office
Sony/Marvel Studios’ “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is showing that even after “Avengers: Endgame,” interest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe hasn’t faded in the slightest. The film added $32.6 million from 4,634 screens on Friday, and is now estimated for a six-day opening of $188 million.

By comparison, 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” earned $154 million in its first six days of release, going on to gross $334 million domestic and $880 million worldwide. It’s good news for Sony, which is hoping for a very strong July after “Men In Black: International” fizzled at the box office with just $71 million grossed in North America through this weekend. Reception for the latest McU film has been characteristically strong with an A on CinemaScore and a 92% rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

Are Summer Blockbusters Getting Worse?

Are Summer Blockbusters Getting Worse?
While many people view summer as the time to relax, go on vacation and get some sun, this time of year is also known for another reason: its massive blockbusters. Many big studios take advantage of the time when kids are off of school to release some of their biggest box office draws in order to get the largest profit they can, which is why so many massive movies tend to be released between May and August. However, for whatever reason, these summer blockbusters seem to be getting worse and worse every year.

This year, a majority of the summer blockbusters have been major let downs. Movies like Men In Black: International, Shaft, Anna, Ma, Dark Phoenix, The Dead Don't Die and Godzilla: King of the Monsters were all met with horrendously negative reviews from critics and audiences alike. We've only seen a few decently good summer blockbusters so far this year,

Box Office: ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Soars to $25.2 Million on Fourth of July
Moviegoers’ Spidey-senses have been tingling in a good way as Sony’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home” showed plenty of power at North American multiplexes, soaring to $25.2 million on the Fourth of July — the second-highest Independence Day take of all time.

Transformers” generated the biggest Independence Day domestic gross in 2007 with $29 million, followed by “Despicable Me 2” in 2013 with $24.5 million and 2012’s “The Amazing Spider-Man” with $23.3 million.

Spider-Man: Far From Home” has taken in more than $91 million in its first three days and could be on track to take in at least $60 million more during the Friday-Sunday weekend. That should leave the Marvel tentpole well above studio forecasts, which have remained at $125 million for the first six days.

Sony reported Friday that “Spider-Man: Far From Home” has grossed $310 million globally in its first seven days of release with $218.5 million from international markets. The tentpole opened last weekend in China with an impressive $97 million.
