Published Dec 31, 2010It's important to know that for every high grossing film like Avatar there is a financial failure like Cutthroat Island. Everyone knows that 2010 was a successful year for Toy Story 3 and Inception, but what about the movies that didn't fare so well? To help answer this question, we've assembled a list of the 10 films that lost the most money in 2010.
Despite assembling a cast of acting heavyweights, including Ed Norton, Robert De Niro and Frances Conroy, this meditative, fatalistic parable about punishment and morality only recovered $8.3 million of its reported $22 million budget.
Even though this awkward assemblage of Cher, Christina Aguilera and a bounty of unrelenting musical numbers made just under $40 million at the global box office, it cost the heftier sum of $55 million to make. Clearly, none of that money was put into script rewrites.
8. Enter the Void
While Enter the Void technically comes out in Canada this weekend, it has already been released south of the border and in many other territories. And while there are surely an abundance of eager young film poseurs ready to see Gaspar Noé's latest neo-Nazi exercise in style and pretense over substance, it has yet to scratch the $1 million notch of its $16 million price tag.
