August 26, 2016 – The weekend is (almost) here and would normally be a perfect time to watch some great movies at your local theater. Except 2016 has witnessed quite a few movie failures.
The cinematic bombs include the Ghostbusters remake (guesstimated global net loss: $200M); the Ben-Hur remake (the $100M production took in only $11M the first weekend); Pride and Prejudice and Zombies; Disney’s Alice through the Looking Glass; Zoolander 2; and many more.
Despite 2016’s many flops, Rogue One might turn out to be one of the few high notes in an otherwise dismal year at the box office. The following behind-the-scenes reel, which was first shown at Star Wars Celebration in London last month, gives us great hope. The movie premieres Dec. 16th.
