Despite a lot of opportunities to read critical reviews of the film, which you are going to go to the movies, most simply ignore them, creating a sometimes absurd charges that do not reflect the real value of a film.
The Last Airbender
Budget: $ 150 million
Fees: $ 320 million
This film could have been a real masterpiece, standing in a row of such giants of world cinema, as a series of Harry Potter films or films Marvel Universe. The film was supposed to be a film adaptation of the beloved cartoon series about Avatar. Unfortunately, directed by M. Night Shyamalan made some serious mistakes in the preparation of adaptation, including one of the worst was the selection of the cast exclusively with white skin, while the original focus was on racial diversity. In addition, he has changed the pronunciation variants of names of characters and created a number of plot holes. Despite the general success at the box office, the company Nickelodeon insisted that the second film is likely to fail at the box office.
Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace
Budget: $ 115 million
Fees: $ 1 billion
This film emerged only thanks to the presence of the phrase "Star Wars" in its name. The first and quite important problem was Jar Jar Binks. He did not like the fans of the series so much that the filmmakers had to minimize its presence in Episodes II and III. In addition, the fans did not like the excessive use of computer graphics. At that time the technology was still too new and not improved, which affected the quality of the pictures.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Budget: $ 185 million
Fees: 786 million dollars
Every successful film must necessarily present a charismatic main character, however, the mere presence of such does not always guarantee the success of your movie. This happened with "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" movie. The entire series of the Indiana Jones movies was a little crazy, but this film broke all records, is worth only one scene where Jones survived the explosion of the atomic bomb, hidden in a refrigerator. Spielberg later admitted that it was his fault. Besides, the Harrison Ford was too old and too heavy to lift for the role.
Grown Ups 2
Budget: $ 80 million
Fees: $ 247 million
It is unlikely that someone will be able to give a precise answer to the question of what lies such popularity of this film. Even the first part of it was difficult to name a successful comedy, but, despite this, the second film is almost three times paid off at the box office. Unfortunately, that's been going on for several years, people make the same mistake and go to the movies to movies with Sandler, hoping for a miracle.
Budget: $ 60 million
Fees: $ 250 million
This film is in many ways similar to the film "Classmates". All that you can offer this comedy - several aging stars, to participate in the filming of mediocre film. Probably, such high charges this comedy were required to ensure that many bought into the star cast. In fact, the film is clearly not worth the wasted time and money.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Budget: $ 195 million
Charges: 1, $ 1 billion
Just as Star Wars, the film went largely due to the first film, which proved to be quite successful and has gained a lot of fans. The second part has turned out badly. Most likely, this was due to a series of dramatic events which broke out on the set.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
Budget: $ 145 million
Fees: 401 million dollars
A bit surprised that this film series is still going on, because there are no prerequisites for the creation of sequels did not exist, at least not on the basis of the very high popularity of the first film. Moreover, the series of "The Mummy" has spawned a number of spin-offs. High fees of the first film were justified general interest, but as for the continuation of the series - we can explain his success only boundless optimism of viewers who have not paid off. The film turned out to be extremely failure.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon
Budget: $ 50 million
Fees: 710 million dollars
This film was not only the worst in the series "Twilight", but also the worst film of the vampire of all time. Even the most dedicated fans of "Twilight" are reluctant to recognize this fact. Fortunately, the whole series has been so successful that even a frankly bad film could not make all the franchise to the bottom.
Budget: $ 140 million
Fees: 449 million dollars
Usually war films are perceived quite positively audience and cause a whole range of patriotic sentiment across the country, it does not matter, a bad film or not, the main thing that it corresponds to the historical facts. In a strange way, the film "Pearl Harbor" was able to collect a huge visual weight, not bothering her dive into the details of the storyline. Surely this was due to the fact that Michael Bay has made a historical film in the romantic drama with lots of explosions and cool scenes with the aircraft. Viewers expect exciting, intense and historically authentic war film on the similarity of "Saving Private Ryan", were unpleasantly disappointed. The film is almost entirely revolves around the relationship between the two protagonists, and lose sight of the main events in honor of the film and which got its name.
Budget: $ 1 million
Fees: $ 102 million
It is no secret that the films based on real video almost did not require a huge budget. Typically, the maximum inflow of funds from fees for such films takes place in the first week of hire, then the influx of eager to see him reduced because of the reviews people have looked a film and make sure that it is no better than the rest of the weight of such horror. "Obsessed" movie - just falls into the category of such films.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Budget: $ 125 million
Fees: $ 485 million
Continuation of the popular franchise "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" has received much more publicity than they deserve. And critics and audiences agreed that the movie was not the most good. But then again, the name has played a role, and the film grossed a decent enough amount of box office, surpassing even the notorious "Guardians of the Galaxy."
Fifty Shades of Gray
Budget: $ 40 million
Fees: 421 million dollars
Almost everyone who went to the cinema to see this movie, were disappointed. The only thing is now we can only hope - is that the rest of the books in this series have been filmed ever. Even actors Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, starring as the protagonists, has publicly stated that the movie was pretty bad. Unfortunately, this film has a serious amount of box office only because of its name raspiarenny.
