The Biggest Flops of 2013... So Far.

So you thought Battleship and John Carter would be the end of these big movie flops? And while I think it's harder for a movie to flop these days since the international market is growing... Hollywood is still having trouble with certain movies.  Maybe a decade ago, movies that did bad in the States would also do bad overseas.  No so true now.  However, with that said, there are still movies that which studios couldn't save with the overseas market... and here are the current flops of 2013, which some may or may not get out of the red with time.

*take into consideration that movies don't get 100% back of their gross. As a portion goes to the exhibitors.  I can't remember what it was, but the split was something like 90/10 on the first weekend then 80/20, then 70/30, then 60/40 over the next weekends.  Anyways, you get the idea. I think someone out has something more accurate description.


The Last Stand
Domestic Gross: $12.1 million
Foreign Gross: $23.1 million
Total Gross: $35.2 million
Budget: $45 million
Oh Arnold. I actually kinda want to see this film.



Bullet to the Head
Domestic Gross: $9.5 million
Foreign Gross: n/a
Total Gross: $13.8 million
Budget: $55 million
Oh Stallone. No body wants to see aging action stars in mediocre action movies.



Beautiful Creatures
Domestic Gross: $19.4 million
Foreign Gross: $37.9 million
Total Gross: $57.3 million
Budget: $60 million
They were pushing it as the next Twilight phenom, didn't happen.



Jack the Giant Slayer
Domestic Gross: $61.9 million
Foreign Gross: $116.8 million
Total Gross: $178.7 million
Budget: $195 million
Like John Carter, this big budget film didn't have a real target audience.



The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Domestic Gross: $21.3 million
Foreign Gross: n/a
Total Gross: $21.3 million
Budget: $30 million
Despite not being too expensive, a film with Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey in it should have done much, much better.
