The Year's Biggest Flops
As 2016 comes to a close, there's no better time to take a look back at the year's biggest box office bombs. While the past year saw successes like Finding Dory, Captain America: Civil War, Zootopia, and Deadpool, 2016's releases also included films that fell far short of expectations (and those that barely made more than $1 million). Check out some of the year's biggest flops ahead.

Domestic viewers said "game over" to Warcraft, which grossed just $47.2 million in North America. But the $160-budgeted video game adaptation was a hit overseas, with $386.3 million earned from theaters abroad.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant was unable to live up to the success of its preceding films. The Shailene Woodley-starring YA adaptation, which had an estimated budget of $110 million, saw such a dismal showing that its $66.18 million domestic total affected the budget and plans for its previously planned sequel. The adaptation of Veronica Roth's novels picked up an additional $113 million internationally.

Free State of Jones
The star power of Matthew McConaughey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mahershala Ali, and Keri Russell wasn't enough to propel Free State of Jones to box office success. The drama, which ran on an estimated budget of $50 million, picked up a domestic total of $20.8 million and an additional $2.3 million abroad.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
An adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies couldn't quite scare up an impressive box office haul. Operating on an estimated budget of $28 million, the movie reached a worldwide gross of just $16.37 million.

Anyone who hoped this Michael Fassbender film would mark a turning point for video-game adaptations was likely disappointed when Assassin’s Creed arrived in December. The film, which had a reported $125 million budget, opened to harsh reviews and brought in a dismal $15 million over its four-day opening weekend.

Not even the pairing of A-listers Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence could help this space-set romance achieve liftoff during its opening weekend. The film debuted on Dec. 21 and picked up just $23.1 million over its first four days around the Christmas holiday, marking the second lowest wide-release opening in Lawrence’s filmography to thus far. Despite that rocky start, Passengers was expected to hit $65 million in domestic receipts by the end of 2016 -- with international openings, including in China, to come.
