Via The Hollywood Reporter, a list compiling the Top 15 Biggest Movie Flops of 2011 has gone online, and among them are a few big name films that just didn't deliver to the expectations of many this year. There are no surprises here, and the story's running on the popculture network sites like Comic Book Movie and Bleeding Cool.
Here's The list via Comic Book Movie.
Mars Needs Moms - Budget: $150M; Global Gross: $39M
Sucker Punch - Budget: $82M; Global Gross: $89.8M
Arthur - Budget: $40M; Global Gross: $45.7M
Green Lantern - Budget: $200M; Global Gross: $219.9M
Cowboys & Aliens - Budget: $163M; Global Gross: $178.8M
Glee: The 3D Concert Movie - Budget: $9M; Global Gross: $18.7M
Conan the Barbarian - Budget: $90M; Global Gross: $48.8M
I Don't Know How She Does It - Budget: $24M; Global Gross: $30.5M
The Thing - Budget: $38M; Global Gross: $27.4M
The Big Year - Budget: $41M; Global Gross: $7.4M
The Rum Diary - Budget: $45M; Global Gross: $21.6M
Anonymous - Budget: $30M; Global Gross: $14.8M
Tower Heist - Budget: $75M; Global Gross: $126.3M
Happy Feet Two - Budget: $135M; Global Gross: $115M
New Year's Eve - Budget: $56M; Global Gross: $54.9M
I've seen most of the movies up in this list, and frankly it's hard to argue with the disappointing numbers put up here. Conan The Barbarian and New Year's Eve I understand, but Sucker Punch, Green Lantern, and Cowboys & Aliens in particular were marketed as big blockbusters, and they didn't fare so well after getting released in theaters. Hopefully next year's tally of flicks get better results. For more info on the story, visit the source posts at CBM, Bleeding Cool, or THR!
