Tag: BOX OFFICE
There are many reasons a movie could flop at the box office. Poor or insufficient marketing, the release date, competition at the theaters, lack of star power, unfavorable reviews, etc. Some of these potential problem-causers could be the fault of the film makers themselves or the production company. Others, such as the response from critics, can’t really be prevented to the same extent. Plus, there’s that elusive phenomenon that can’t be tracked – word of mouth. The point is, many factors that could contribute to a movie flopping at the box office have little to do with the actual content of the film itself. Just because a movie flops doesn’t mean it isn’t any good or isn’t worth seeing. Here is our list of movies that are incredibly popular despite flopping.

Although the weekend’s new releases, Money Monster and The Darkness, performed above expectations it was not quite enough to score a victory. For the second straight weekend, the box office belonged to Disney with the top two slots being claimed by Captain America: Civil War and The Jungle Book.
It was a slow weekend at the box office, and although numbers were okay no one had any totals really worth bragging about, but The Revenant managed to win the race, beating out all the newcomers for the weekend.
Three weekends have come and gone since The Force Awakens opened, and it is still going strong. In fact, the total was more than double the second place gross estimate this weekend. Not to mention how badly it spanked The Hateful Eight on its opening weekend.
As predicted, The Force Awakens retained its top spot over the holiday weekend. Along with its other achieved records, the film has grossed over $1 billion dollars total now and just had the second largest weekend.
