Eonline: When director Zack Snyder's $82 million Sucker Punch got decked last weekend, it was but the latest in a long, sorry line of 2011 box-office disappointments.
Here are five major releases that, as things stand now, are the sorriest:
That really sucks seeing Take Me Home Tonight on that list. Why did such a good movie bomb :(
You liked it? The trailers looked good to me but it got pretty poor reviews.
I loved it. Caught 2 free screenings of it and I ended up going back and paying for it several times more. It really was a great comedy!
Mars Needs Moms is definitely a massive failure, $35m worldwide gross with $150m budget? Ouch.
i thought those animated disney movies not made by pixar were just small cheap stuff to pass the time until another pixar movie....i guess i was wrong
I feel bad for Seth Green the most just for being attached to the project. He made his money though.
Seems like Nicholas Cage appears exclusively in bombs these days. Then again, it's been like that for a long time.
agree alot of old good actor's are becomeing if you give me the $ i will star in said show.
Sad to see Sucker Punch aleady slated to be on this list. Thought it was pretty good. Action sequences were great. Story was decent. Hated seeing Kick-Ass and Scott Pilgrim on these lists last year. They were my 2 favorite movies last year. Always sucks seeing good and unique movies doing so poorly at the theatres. Then people wonder why all movies released are lame ass comedies or animated kid movies.
I highly suspect Sucker Punch could make a lot of its money back when it comes to DVD/Blu-ray. Especially with people knowing it will be the unrated/director's cut. I've known a few now that have decided to bypass the theater after hearing that news.
I'm doing exactly that. Zack Synder films (just like Ridley Scott's) are best just left till the directors cut version comes out.
The unrated cut is actually making not seeing it in theaters less painful for me. I just want it to come quick. And I loved Kick-Ass too. @just_looken - You're nuts man.
suker punch was just a little girl tripping out haveing dreams and kickass was just wierd and the actions scenes come on. both of those movies are a 1/5.
KickAss was awesome man.
I saw sucker punch last weekend. Holy crap did the plot suck. Just like battle la. The only parts of the movies worth seeing are already in the preview.
"Take me home Tonight" had a lot of publicity and the trailers looked fun,i'm surprise it didn't do so good.
Same. Looked like the kinda comedy that does pretty well these days.
I'm proud to say I've not seen any of those ghastly flops, though The Eagle does appeal to me on a visual-epic kind of level. Still, I probably won't muster the desire to see it.
I enjoyed The Eagle. It's a perfectly middle-of-the-road sword and sandal movie. Heck, even Channing Tatum was pretty decent in the lead role.
