A year most grossing movies list would be easy to slap together, and then mock them. It would be wrong, however. A lot of independent films play in two or three screens for only a couple of weeks to go to DVD or video-on-Demand. His theatrical criticism is often less than $50,000 – small – but does not mean that they were failures. These films usually don’t cost much do, and a great tour box-office was never cards anyway.
It will be much more sports, then, that it should only consider the wide releases, films whose distributors put in more than 1,000 screens, and then got jack squat in return. These tend to be productions Studio bloated, cynical holds cash vehicles stars absurdities. They are ripe for the mockery, especially as that this mockery makes us feel better for ourselves. (Even a large study “flop” is seen by hundreds of thousands of people, what is more famous that we will never be.) So here are…
More low – gross 2010 releases *
* For our purposes, launch is at least 1,000 theatres. All grosses are United States and courtesy of Box Office Mojo.
Honorable mention:‘ Letters to God ‘ (Gross: $ 2.9 million.) Wider version: 897 theaters.) This theme of Christian tearjerker, of a child with cancer whose letters to God are intercepted by an alcoholic postman, only played in 900 screens. But we wanted to talk anyway, mainly because it is a child with cancer whose letters to God are intercepted by an alcoholic postman.
10. ‘Splice’ (gross: $ 17 million.) Wider version: 2,450 theaters.) Divisive exams are not helping. The premise of icky had probably turned off a lot of people, too. It is the audience of Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley, creation of genetic abominations is less that nobody noticed.
9. ‘Youth in war’ (Gross: $ 15.3 million.) Wider version: 1,873 theaters.)
Michael Cera as a teenager clumsy, neurotic, sardonic? Audiences could not accept such conversion strange trick.
8. ‘ My Soul to Take’ (Gross: $ 14.7 million.) Wider version: 2,572 theaters.) There was a time when a horror film written and directed by Wes Craven automatically would be a success. That is not time already. Do you remember ‘Music of the Heart,’ directed by Craven, Meryl Streep played a music teacher? It made more money that was in ‘ My Soul to Take’.
7. ‘Repo men’ (Gross: $ 13.8 million.) Wider version: 2,521 theaters.) We have our hopes up thinking that it is a sequel to the 1984 film Emilio EstÃ©vez ‘Repo Man,’ only to discover that a future thriller science was actually fiction on the market for human organs. So sad.
6. ‘Case 39’ (Gross: $ 13.3 million.) Wider version: 2,212 theaters.) This psychological thriller was filmed as four years ago and starred RenÃ©e Zellweger and Bradley Cooper had no interest in promoting or even discuss it and Paramount Vantage screen before that was not opened, and there goes well. Case closed!
5. ‘ Leave to Me In’ (Gross: $ 12.1 million.) Wider version: 2,042 theaters.) Recognize it. No matter how good was a remake Swedish import moody on a non sparkling teen vampire was never going to be a success. But surprised us yet at how poorly this was lucky in theaters. For the sake of comparison, ‘ Twilight: Eclipse’300 million dollars, and even ‘ Suck vampires ‘ made $ 36 million. Why can we not have good things.
4. “Extraordinary measures” (Gross: $ 12.1 million.) Wider version: 2,549 theaters.) Adorable starring Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford in a moving drama about a man trying to cure the disease that is killing their children? How could leave a company? Oh, right: we see the same thing for free at the Hallmark movie channel.
3. ‘Jonah Hex’ (Gross: $ 10.6 million.) Wider version: 2,825 theaters.)
Haha, remember ‘Jonah Hex’? It is a film released this year.
2. ‘MacGruber’ (Gross: $ 8.5 million.) Wider version: 2,551 theaters.) There have been 11 films based on “Saturday Night Live” characters. Two of them, ‘Stuart saves his family’ and ‘ is Pat: The Movie,’ only played in limited release. What of the remaining nine, where ‘MacGruber’ range? Ninth. Ay. Became even less money than ‘Blues Brothers 2000’ and ‘The Ladies Man’ OUCH.
1. ‘Of the road warrior’ (Gross: $ 5.6 million.) Wider version: 1,622 theaters.) Ninjas comply with the cowboys in the old West. Geoffrey Rush plays the town drunk. Kate Bosworth is a whore with a heart of gold, or something. What is surprising is that the film did so badly, but never found its way into cinemas at all. Your box office of $ 5.6 million translates into approximately 700,000 tickets sold, which means that it was seen by fewer people than the average episode of ‘Cake Boss.’
