Summer 2015 Movie Flops

Here are the movies that got the worst sunburn according to THR.

Summer 2015 is expected to go down as one of the biggest in history in terms of overall revenue, but there were a number of high-profile bombs that have left some Hollywood studios smarting.

Big stars that got dinged include George Clooney (Tomorrowland), Adam Sandler (Pixels) and Bradley Cooper (Aloha). Directors that took it on the chin were Brad Bird (Tomorrowland), Josh Trank (Fantastic Four), Cameron Crowe (Aloha) and Guy Ritchie (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.)

Here are five big bombs of the season when accounting for budget, marketing spend and revenue the film can expect to earn in ancillary markets. Grosses are through Sept. 4, with several titles still in release worldwide.

Tomorrowland (Disney, May 22)
Budget: $190 million
Global gross: $208.4 million
Expected loss: $120 million-$150 million

Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.4 billion) and Pixar's Inside Out ($703 million), which is still rolling out overseas, will go a long way in helping Disney absorb the loss.

*Fantastic Four (Fox, Aug. 7)
Budget: $125 million
Global gross: $146.7 million
Expected loss: $80 million-$100 million

The dismal performance of Trank's reboot throws into question whether Fox will move ahead with a sequel, dated for June 9, 2017. The movie received scathing reviews, prompting Trank to tweet that his version was better.

*Pixels (Sony, July 24)
Budget: $88 million-plus
Global gross: $186.4 million
Expected loss: $75 million-plus

The studio had hoped to launch a new franchise with the tentpole. Pixels opens in China later this month, but analysts differ as to its chances in the world's second-biggest moviegoing market.

*The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (Warner Bros., Aug. 14)
Budget: $75 million-plus
Global gross: $72.1 million
Expected loss: $80 million-plus

Warner Bros. had a difficult summer overall, with Hot Pursuit, Entourage and Magic Mike XXL also taking hits; the two standouts were San Andreas ($469.6 million) and Mad Max: Fury Road ($374.1 million). Man From U.N.C.L.E., based on the classic television series, still has yet to open in several key European markets.

Aloha (Sony/Fox, May 29)
Budget: $37 million-plus
Global gross: $26.2 million
Expected loss: $65 million

Some box-office experts put the losses for Aloha as high as $75 million, but the decision by Fox, which handled the film overseas, to scrub the film's release in numerous markets likely lowered the number.
