9 Of The Biggest Movie Flops In Hollywood History – #4 Was Super Bore!

The movie industry is huge, with many movies these days making hundreds of millions of dollars. Because people love going to the cinema so much, most movies that are released do go on to make a profit. However, there’s always the odd one that doesn’t do that well and ends up making a loss.

The computer-animated, sci-fi family comedy film was released in 2011 but went on to become one of Hollywood’s biggest box office bombs. The film’s budget was around $150 million, yet it only made around $40 million worldwide. It’s the worst-performing film branded by Disney and critics think one of the reasons why it didn’t connect is because it has a mother being kidnapped from her child.
