Box Office Flops of 2012... So Far

So it's getting harder and harder for movies to flop since the rise in Foreign box office figures. Still, there are a few movies where that luxury doesn't help too much... and thus, they become disappointments. Usually, a movie studio and distributor well get back around 50 - 60% of the total gross of the movie, while the rest will go to the exhibitors. So, most movies grosses need to at least double the budget in order for a real profit.  This is also not taking into consideration marketing and advertising costs.

Anyways, here are the Box Office Flops of 2012 so far:
