You could say ‘The Hunger Games’ did well in its debut, but that would be a vast understatement — with $155 million in revenues, the film adaptation of the best-selling novel left the other movies in the dust and moved easily to the top of the charts this weekend.
After a couple poor weekends out of the gate, ‘John Carter’ is poised to become one of the worst movie investments in history. Analysts expect the Walt Disney Co. to take a $165 million loss that will earn it the indignity cast upon forgettable films like ‘Ishtar’ and ‘Howard the Duck.’ A variety of reasons for the movie’s poor performance have been floated — from casting to plot to promotion. Whatever the cause, it wouldn’t be the first time Hollywood banked on a splashy blockbuster and lost big. Here’s a look back at some of Hollywood’s most colossal failures.
Theodor Geisel — better known as Dr. Seuss — died more than a decade ago, but his legend lives on. Case in point? The movie ‘Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax’ opened strong with $70.7 million in revenues, topping the box office charts this weekend.
It took a movie with a zillion stars to do it, but ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’ has finally been knocked off its perch at the top of the charts. Despite blistering reviews, ‘New Year’s Eve’ brought in $13.7 million in its debut, making it the most popular movie at the box office this weekend.
With no new movies opening in wide-release this weekend, there was little to challenge the powerhouse known as ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1,’ which earned $16.9 million and easily kept its berth as the top-earning film for the third weekend in a row.
‘Paranormal Activity 3,’ the third installment in the horror film franchise, received a warm welcome at the box office this weekend, earning $54 million and a spot at the top of the charts in its first week of release.
