Films That Prove Big-Budget Productions Don’t Equal Box Office Hits

Just because a movie has a big-time budget, it doesn’t mean it will be successful. Many films flop, such as How Do You Know, only grossing $48.7 million off a $120 million budget, proving big-name actors and money don’t equate to a movie good.

Sit back, relax, and maybe add these upcoming big-budget flops to a do-not-watch list.

Gods And Generals

While historians praised Gods and Generals for its historical accuracy, it didn’t save the film from flopping at the box office against a big-time budget of $56 million. Following the early days of the Civil War, the period drama had great bones with nothing holding it together.

Grossing only $12.8 million at the box office, reviewers said the movie was “Filled with two-dimensional characters and pompous self-righteousness, Gods and Generals is a long, tedious sit.”
