Clooney, Depp, Efron movies among biggest Hollywood flops of 2015
All three joined Bradley Cooper, Sean Penn and Bill Murray in headlining what Forbes called Hollywood’s biggest turkeys of the year, based on the percentage of their budgets they earned back at the theatre as of Nov 18.
Leading the pile was Murray’s critically panned October comedy “Rock the Kasbah”, which grossed $2.9 million on an estimated $15 million production, Forbes said.
Penn’s $40 million budget thriller “The Gunman” failed to bring in the crowds in March, collecting $10.7 million in box office receipts and coming in second.
Clooney couldn’t save futuristic summer offering “Tomorrowland”.
Although the film grossed $209 million, Forbes noted that the production budget was estimated at $190 million, not including marketing costs. It was placed 14th on the list.
