Clooney, Depp movies among biggest flops of 2015

Forbes has released a list of this year’s biggest movie flops, and leading the pack was Bill Murray’s critically panned comedy “Rock the Kasbah.” The film, which follows a recording agent who takes his client and business to Afghanistan, grossed $2.9 million on an estimated $15 million production.

At number two, Sean Penn’s “The Gunman” failed to bring in the crowds in March. With a 40 million dollar budget, it only collected $10.7 million in box office receipts.

George 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. Variety Awards Editor Timothy Gray eloborated.

SOUNDBITE: Timothy Gray, Variety Awards Editor, saying (English):

“It’s funny, you do look at some films and think, ‘what were they thinking?’ A lot of times you can see a film and think, ‘well their intentions were good.’ With a movie like “Tomorrowland,” Brad Bird, really good director, George Clooney, you’d think on paper this sounds great and then you watch it and you think, didn’t quite turn out probably the way they thought it would.”

Despite an all-star line-up including Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, Hawaii-based romantic comedy “Aloha” was among the year’s most-publicized misfires, with a $37 million return on an estimated $26.3 million production budget.

Zac Efron’s electronic dance music movie “We Are Your Friends” was listed in 8th place and Johnny Depp’s quirky action caper “Mortdecai” was placed 10th.
