Mortal Engines: Its opening weekend represented a catastrophe for Universal Studios, and its lackluster global take had Hollywood insiders pummeling the film. In a report by Variety, studio executives said they wouldn’t be surprised if Mortal Engines lost as much as $125 million by the time its run ended. It’s Domestic Total as of Dec. 27, remains $13,652,905, while its Production Budget was nearly about $100 million.
Robin Hood: With a Production budget nearly around $100 million. Lionsgate’s big-budget take on the folktale is shaping up to be the dud of the year, as its Global box office collection only adds $65 million. While it is still running but with a performance like this, it can hardly add some penny into their account.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms: Even Disney can make a misstep at the multiplexes. With a Production budget of $120 million, the family-friendly fantasy couldn’t live up to the expectation as its Global box office collection ended up at $138 million. Disney has a long way to go. Their new venture and much anticipated Aladdin 2019 is on the cards.
A Wrinkle in Time: With a Production budget over $100 million, the powerhouse trio of Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling failed miserably as acclaimed director Ava DuVernay didn’t impress the audience as it ended up with a Global box office collection $132 million.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” Hollywood’s first take on the hit book series by Stieg Larsson, was such a success. It was on the cards that they will be back with another. Only this time, it didn’t work. With a Production budget of $43 million, the movie merely earned $31 million globally.
