It doesn’t happen often but like with many things in life, the crowd is not always right. In the movie context, there have been some great movies that have totally flopped or failed to perform as expected. Hey it happens. Below is a list of some of those movies.

1: Sucker punch
Every now and then, a horrible movie, I mean pure trash comes along and you find yourself strangely liking it. That’s what happened with Sucker Punch, the 2011 film by Zack Snyder about a girl named Babydoll(I know) who ends up at a mental institution and imagines she is in a brothel trying to escape. It was a big flop. It was made with a budget of $89 million(excluding marketing) and only made $82 million back at the box office

. The soundtrack was cool and the fight scenes were fun to watch. A lot of people actually liked Sucker Punch, just not enough to show support where it mattered most, the box office.

  1. Ain’t seen some of the movies on the list yet, but I’m sure Alexander bricked the hardest, for me. They tried so hard with that movie, my God.

  2. That’s what some people say caused it to bomb. They were trying to shock people.

  3. This is a VERY interesting article Selinah. You had me laughing out loud about the catwoman review. I still need to watch some (okay, most) these movies.

  4. lol thank you. I’ve lost all hope of you ever watching movies. You’ve BEEN saying you would.
