Expensive flops: the 30 biggest failures in cinema
Will 'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins' join the list of expensive flops?
MOVIES Box office
Big budgets do not necessarily mean good films. Pleasing the critics and the public is a difficult job, which requires a good director, cast, script, and a little bit of luck as well. Even the best actors and directors have had a few failures during their careers. Sometimes it doesn't matter how much funding a film has, it still ends up being a bust anyway.
In the case of the rebooted 'G.I. Joe' franchise, it seems like they're lacking in many respects. While the first two movies made a respectable amount at the box office, it seems like the producers were expecting a lower intake for 'Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins' and created it with half the budget of the previous films. Within a day of its release, the movie has been panned by critics and is predicted to make a lowly US$15 million on its first weekend. Only time will tell, but it's not looking food for 'Snake Eyes.'
