The John Carter Memorial Award

Flop. A flop does not necessarily a bad movie make. There have been good movies that failed at the box office for whatever reason. Just this week, the exceptional West Side Story remake from Steven Spielberg only made around 10 million in its opening weekend.

Still, flops do happen and the John Carter Memorial Award is here to remember these attempts at success one last time.

The Hugh Jackman science fiction film made a whole 2 million dollars on its opening weekend and finished 9th for the week. It was the worst opening of all-time by a film playing in over 3,000 theaters. It had an estimated $110 million dollar overall budget. Warner Brothers released the film both in the theaters and on HBO Max, which could have only hurt the box office for the film.
