The Biggest Flops & Hits Of 2018’s Box-Office

The Biggest Flops Hits Of 2018s Box Office

Moviegoing was big business this year. Cinemas, suffering through a terrible 2017, found themselves bouncing back with a number of major hits across a range of genres including the return of major success for sadly vanishing mid-sized budget level productions.

At the same time, there were a couple of major flops – most of which were fairly predictable, and one or two that were not. Variety has done a piece reflecting on a dozen of this year’s biggest success stories and disappointing failures, comparing budgets with box-office tallies. The results were as follows:

HITS:
“Black Panther” (Cost: $210 million, Gross: $1.3 billion)
“Incredibles 2” (Cost: $200 million, Gross: $1.24 billion)
“The Nun” (Cost: $22 million, Gross: $365 million)
“A Quiet Place” (Cost: $17 million, Gross: $340 million)
“Halloween” (Cost: $10 million, Gross: $252 million)
“Crazy Rich Asians” (Cost: $30 million, Gross: $238 million)

MISSES:
“Robin Hood” (Cost: $100 million, Gross: $65 million)
“The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” (Cost: $100 million, Gross: $138 million)
“A Wrinkle in Time” (Cost: $100 million, Gross: $132 million)
“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” (Cost: $43 million, Gross: $31 million)
“The Happytime Murders” (Cost: $40 million, Gross: $27 million)
“The Sisters’ Brothers” (Cost: $38 million, Gross: $9 million)

Once again, the overall box-office domestically has passed the $11 billion mark while internationally the global box-office tally for the year is expected to hover around the $40 billion range.
