It’s the same story every year. In spite of a powerful cast, high box office expectations or even just good old fashioned branding, there are always a handful of movies that simply tank at the box office. The only thing that changes from year to year are the titles and the unfortunate talent attached to these disasters. Inevitably, 2015 was no different, as several high profile stars were at the center of some really classic disasters. Read on to see which films were this year’s biggest disappointments.
Who can say what it was about Tomorrowland that failed to connect with audiences. Usually George Clooney’s face alone would guarantee a number one opening weekend. Unfortunately, the film failed at the box office, earning back a mere half of its projected budget. The person to really feel sorry for here is director Brad Bird, who has had a tough time making the leap to live action after directing some of the best animated films of all time.
