Biggest Box Office Bombs of 2015

(20th Century Fox, Universal Pictures, and Lionsgate)
(20th Century Fox, Universal Pictures, and Lionsgate)

Here we look at the movies that either failed to make their money back at the box office, or just didn’t do well enough to be considered a success.

It would be a waste of time to look at the highest grossing films of 2015.  As of now that list would be ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and then a bunch of other movies that don’t matter in comparison.  So instead we take a look at the movies that didn’t live up to expectations at the box office.  While they are listed as box office bombs, that doesn’t necessarily mean they lost money at the box office.  A movie can make a profit, but if it doesn’t make a certain percentage over the break even line, a studio might consider the film a failure.

For each movie we will give you the estimated budget, what the film made worldwide (with its U.S. take in parenthesis), and then its total loss or gain.  And in case you don’t recognize the movie or it slipped under your radar, we’ve added a trailer for each one.
