The Lone Ranger, White House Down, The Internship

Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer, Inc, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox

Theatergoers had tons of options to choose from this summer.

From third installments of action pics to comedies starring longtime pals, there was surely something for everyone to see and enjoy.

But while there were a few surprises thrown into the mix this film season, the amount of flops seemed to stack up.

Here's a look at this summer's biggest box office bombs:

The Lone Ranger

2012 - Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer, Inc

1. The Lone Ranger: The  Johnny Depp-Armie Hammer adventure cost a whopping $200 million-something to make but only garnered $175 million in the box office.

Jaden Smith, After Earth

Columbia Pictures

2. After Earth: Not even adorable father-son duo Will andJaden Smith could save this action-packed joyride. The film opened up on the No. 3 spot its opening weekend.

The Internship

Twentieth Century Fox

3. The Internship: The slapstick comedy from some of our favorites, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, couldn't quite get off its feet in theaters. The film earned only around $64 million worldwide.

Anthony Hopkins, Red 2

Summit Entertainment

4. Red 2: Even all the star power—Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jonas—couldn't keep this sequel afloat. While the first film did tremendously well for the studios, the second installment only took in $57 million worldwide.

Channing Tatum, Joey King, White House Down

Sony Pictures

5. White House Down: The star-studded cast seemed promising, as did the chilling storyline. But the Channing Tatum film only earned $117 million in global box office bucks—which is technically considered flop-worthy.

Tyler Perry Presents Peeples


6. Tyler Perry Presents Peeples: The Kerry Washington flick opened up to dismal sales at $4.9 million, almost tying with the Mark Wahlberg's latest movie Pain & Gain.

Jeff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds, RIPD

Universal Studios

7. RIPD: Ryan Reynolds made his return to the big screen after taking a slight break to enjoy newlywed life with Blake Lively, but his hunky ways weren't enough to salvage the action thriller. The film cost the studios $130 million to make, but only raked in $49 million in ticket sales.
