10 Biggest Box Office Flops of 2011

2011 was a huge year for movies, and it was especially a big year for flops. Despite the rise in box office from the overseas market (which helped save some movies from becoming total failures Click Here) there were still outstanding box office flops. Some you may have heard of, and some you may not. Anyway, here are the 10 Biggest Box Office Flops of 2011.


10) The Big Year
Three big comedy actors couldn't save a movie no one wanted to watch. Ouch! Not a very big year for them.
Budget: $41 million
Domestic Gross: $7.2 million
Foreign Gross: $0.2 million
Total Gross: $7.4 million

9) Anonymous
It's great for a director to do something out of the ordinary. However, here I am wondering if Roland Emmerich should stick to his end-of-the-world disaster movies...
Budget: $30 million
Domestic Gross: $4.4 million
Foreign Gross: $10.3 million
Total Gross: $14.7 million



8) Drive Angry
Nicholas Cage seems to be in a lot of these bad, bad movies. Sometimes they do well, like Ghost Rider, but other times (like these) they tank.
Budget: $50 million
Domestic Gross: $10.7 million
Foreign Gross: $18.2 million
Total Gross: $28.9 million


7) Your Highness
Great cast, was supposed to be the next funniest thing since Pineapple Express. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.
Budget: $50 million
Domestic Gross: $21.6 million
Foreign Gross: $3.3 million
Total Gross: $24.9 million



6) Killer Elite
Who would have thought that a movie with Jason Statham, Clive Owen, and Robert DeNiro would flop?
Budget: $70 million
Domestic Gross: $25.1 million
Foreign Gross: $27.8 million
Total Gross: $53 million


5) The Beaver
It was supposed to be Mel Gibson's comeback movie, directed by Jodie Foster. It wasn't... people still stayed away. The title doesn't really help either.
Budget: $21 million
Domestic Gross: $1 million
Foreign Gross: $5.4 million
Total Gross: $6.4 million


4) Conan the Barbarian
A remake of a film that wasn't great because it was actually good, but because it developed into a cheesy classic cult hit... Well, Arnold trying to act is pretty entertaining.
Budget: $90 million
Domestic Gross: $21.3 million
Foreign Gross: $27.5 million
Total Gross: $48.8 million


3) Hugo
Did not want to put this on here, but despite it's positive reviews, this Martin Scorcese film is not finding an audience at all. Maybe still too early, but it has been out since Thanksgiving.
Budget: $150 million*
Domestic Gross: $51 million
Foreign Gross: $11.9 million
Total Gross: $63 million



2) Rum Diary
Oh Hunter S. Thompson, nobody really wants to see his books turn into films, even with Johnny Depp in them. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas being one of the greatest movies ever made, didn't exactly do well either, when it came out.
Budget: $45 million
Domestic Gross: $13.1 million
Foreign Gross: $8.5 million
Total Gross: $21.6 million


1) Mars Needs Moms
You knew about this flop all year, since it came out in March. It had the rest of the year to be out-flopped, but no other movie came close. Disney just wishes to sweep this movie away... umm on a somewhat related note, John Carter, that looks very expensive and lacking a strong target audience. Disney is throwing a lot of advertising dollars at it, crossing their fingers so they don't have another Mars Needs Moms.
Budget: $150 million
Domestic Gross: $21.4 million
Foreign Gross: $17.6 million
Total Gross: $39 million



*Their are a few Hugo figures. Imdb even indicated it cost $170 million, however and insider said the it has cost less than $150 million. So I'll leave it at that, until further notified.
