    Box Office: 5 Biggest Flops This Year (So Far)

    Jack the Giant Slayer New Line Cinema

    How bad has it been for new movies at the 2013 box office?

    So bad that leading into Friday's release of Oz the Great and Powerful, there's only been one $100 million hit (Identity Thief). So bad that the "worst" movie of all-time (Movie 43) is actually a success story. So bad that an infamous flop now seems a blockbuster.

    A rundown of the stiffs:

    5 all-time notorious bombs

    1. Jack the Giant Slayer: It reportedly cost $200 million-something; worldwide, it opened to $40 million-something; and, most devastating from a P.R. standpoint, it failed to measure up to John Carter, which grossed more than twice as much in its debut.




    Beautiful Creatures Warner Bros.

    2. Beautiful Creatures: It could've been the new Twilight, if, you know, it was about vampires instead of witches, and it had inspired fanatical ticket sales. Instead, the movie, which most reports assert had a $60 million price tag, barely made a blip, and to date has grossed only $45 million worldwide.

    Sylvester Stallone, Bullet to the Head Warner Bros. Entertainment

    3. Bullet to the Head: With a reputed $55 million budget versus a $14 million worldwide gross, this Sylvester Stallone shoot-'em-up wins the booby prize for worst showing for a 2013 movie starring a 1980s action icon.

    4. The Last Stand: Stallone's toughest competition, as it were, was this Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, the former governor's first starring work in nearly a decade. The film has netted $31 million worldwide from a $45 million reported budget.

    5. Phantom: What's worst than being mentioned in the same box-office breath with John Carter? Being mentioned in the same box-office breath with Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure. It was that bad last weekend for this $18 million Ed Harris-David Duchovny sub movie that tanked, and historically so, with only $500,000 and change in domestic ticket sales.
