10 Teen Movies That Were the Biggest Flops at the 2017 U.S. Box Office
We blinked and somehow we’re already nearing the end of October. In one week, we’ll be celebrating Halloween and before we know it, it’ll be Thanksgiving and we’ll be in holiday-season mode. This time of the year can get crazy busy, especially with school, family commitments and social activities get increasingly stressful and consistent.
Holiday season is definitely the busiest time of the year and before you know it you’ll be reminiscing on the past year, both the good and the bad. It’s safe to say that 2017 has been one of the craziest ones yet. From insane fashion and beauty trends to TV shows that ended, we have had a very busy 300-somethin’ days.
One aspect of the year that we simply cannot skip over is how insane the movie scene has been lately. There has been a TON of exciting news revealed about upcoming Disney and Marvel movies that we cannot wait to see, but films that hit theaters this year have not been up to par. This summer was one of the worst summers in box-office history and most movies have broken records… but not in a good way.
We saw highly anticipated books-turned-movies turn out to be total flops and remakes of iconic franchises be just as bad as everyone expected them to be. We wondered why we didn’t go to the movies as much as usual this year, and we think it’s because the lack of high-quality movies that have been released. Just looking back on the movies that came out this year make us hopeful for a better 2018… but that won’t be too hard, right?
We definitely need to give major props to the movies that DID do well both critically and in the box office, but those movies are few and far between. Wonder Woman alone probably made more money than three movies on our list — COMBINED. So when you and your friends are trying to decide what movies to watch at your next sleepover, it would probably be a good idea to stay far away from any of these movies:
We had extremely high hopes for this movie. One of our favorite books becoming a film starring Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson — what could go wrong? Apparently... a lot of things.
Not only did the plot not translate well from page to screen, but the movie left us wanting more. The flick did well enough with audiences, but received a 45% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
