Overall, 2011 wasn’t a good year for Hollywood studios, but a couple of big flicks lost serious money.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Mars Needs Moms" was the top flop on their list of the year's biggest box office failures. Disney’s animated feature had a $150 million budget, but only grossed $39 million worldwide.
Warner Bros.’ “Sucker Punch” was an action flick failure, grossing $89.8 million after being made on a $82 million budget.
Russell Brand's vehicle “Arthur” cost around $40 million to make, but the comedy remake only earned $45.7 million.
Ryan Reynolds’ turn as a superhero ended up being a superflop; “Green Lantern” brought in $219.9 million, but its budget was $200 million.
Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford teamed up for “Cowboys & Aliens,” but even those big names couldn’t make moviegoers love it. With a budget of $163 million, the action title grossed $178.8 million.
Other flops include “Glee: The 3-D Concert Movie"; “I Don’t Know How She Does It”; “Rum Diary”; and “Tower Heist.” Check out HollywoodReporter.com for the full list.
