Biggest box office flops of 2017

It’s that time of year where we see which films were the biggest Box Office Flops of 2017.

2017 has come to a close, so now we can see what films were sure to have gotten at least a few executives yelled at.

A few notes on the table, the vast majority of those listed are obvious to have not turned a profit, but those that appear to have a total higher than their budget doesn’t mean they made any money. The rule of thumb is take the global gross, divide it by two and then subtract the budget to figure out if a film made a profit. This takes into account marketing costs, the higher percentage distributors take overseas and so on.

Considering how badly the Box Office went this year, it’s surprising there weren’t more flops. The number jumped from 41 last year to 45 this year.

Once again there is no real trend to see in topics, settings, genres or even actors.

Here’s hoping that 2018 sees the number of flops drop, but somehow I think we’re going to see a similar sized list.

A few movies are still in release, but they have little to no hope of breaking even.
