Which Movies Were Giant Box Office Bombs in 2012?

John Carter 1 of 11

Production Budget: $250 million

Domestic Gross: $73 million ($282 million worldwide)

Summary: Disney and New Line banked on 'John Carter' being a hit so much, they threw $250 million into it. Yes, the critically panned CGI spectacle became profitable thanks to the worldwide receipts, but the $177 million deficit where American audiences are concerned is wretched. Taylor Kitsch is beloved by 'Friday Night Lights' audiences, but Disney should have dished out a few more million on a bankable star if they were already throwing a quarter of a billion bucks into this turkey.
