10 biggest Hollywood movie flops of all time
This movie is probably the biggest animation box office flops ever. With a huge budget of $175 million this poorly shot film made only a paltry $39 million.
Even big name stars like Mathew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz could not save this movie from bombing. Based on a bestselling book Sahara, there was absolutely nothing best selling about this comedy adventure. With a scary budget of $241 million, it only managed to make $119 million.
8. Adventures of Pluto Nash. (2002). Loss: $145.9 million
Eddie Murphy used to be one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood. But in recent years his movie career has plummeted to non existence. This Pluto Nash fiasco amongst other movies was largely responsible for this. To be fair to the critics and movie goers, this movie was absolutely horrible. It made $7.1 million on a $120 million budget.
This is a war film based on the Alamo battle during the Texas revolution. Set in the 1860’s Mexico. This movie remake of highly a successful 1960’s film did not live up to its predecessor’s success. In fact it was a mess. It earned only $25.8 million in revenues on a $145 million budget.
6. Cutthroat Island. (1995) Loss: $148 million.
This is the movie that almost destroyed the lucrative Pirate movie genre. It comes in at number 6 on our list of the biggest Hollywood and most expensive movie flops ever. One of the greatest female action stars could not save this strangely entertaining Pirate movie from complete failure. With an estimated loss of $148 million on a $115 million budget.
