  • the losses on these movies were out of this world.

  • Welcome to watch Mojo, and today we'll be counting down our picks for the top 10 sci fi movie box office flops.

  • More you care, the more the world finds ways to hurt you for for this list will be going over the science fiction movies, which flopped at the box office and are considered failures.

  • These could still be good movies, and some of them technically garnered more box office revenue than their budgets.

  • But the studios still took a significant financial and reputational loss.

  • If you like what you're hearing, be sure to check out the full song at the link below with Number 10 John Carter.

  • Given that its source material was written by the man who created Tarzan, it's surprising that it took so long for an adaptation of this pulp sci fi story.

  • Hell, um, I Even so, the books were quite influential on numerous other stories throughout the 20th century.

  • Maybe that's why audiences found the plot relatively formulaic, even if its source material helped create the formula.

  • No, don't Carter.

  • Whatever the reason, John Carter struggled to recoup its production budget of $263 million on Lee, making 284 million worldwide.

  • When you factor in advertising, John Carter ended up being one of the most expensive movies ever made, and Disney lost money on it.

  • What Number nine Gemini Man Will Smith has always been a big name in the box office, but even he can't save everything.

  • Gemini Man follows an assassin pursued by a younger clone of himself that sounds like a generic action movie from the nineties.

  • That's because that's how long ago the script for this one was shopped around, waiting for technology to reach the point.

  • It could be properly made.

  • And although the effects are indeed fairly impressive, the tired premise didn't draw people in particularly domestically, where Gemini Man grossed an unimpressive $48 million it's overall earnings of 173 million were better.

  • But against the budget of 138 million, the movie still faced losses.

  • We guess it was its own worst enemy.

  • Number eight Annihilation.

  • This sci fi horror film follows a team of scientists who investigated area whose plants and animals have been infected by alien influence volunteering for this.

  • It's not exactly something you do if your life is an perfect harmony.

  • Although well received by critics, audiences were less enthusiastic.

  • They clearly put their money where their mouths were, too, since Annihilation barely made back its $40 million budget by earning 43 million worldwide and with additional cost factored in.

  • That's definitely not a success.

  • I wouldn't like that at all.

  • The movie was distributed partially online internationally on Netflix a month after its release, and although this probably didn't hurt its gross too much, it probably didn't help either.

  • I'm fine going on my own.

  • You just need to decide.

  • Are they coming with Number seven Dune?

  • Based on the influential sci fi novel of the same name, Dune may have featured an all Star cast and been helmed by a well known director, the legendary David Lynch.

  • But audiences and critics alike soundly rejected the movie, with most finding it an incomprehensible mess.

  • I remember the first step in avoiding a trap, eyes knowing of its existence and even fans of the book left scratching their heads.

  • You carry my unborn sister in your womb dunes.

  • $40 million price tag was a bit too steep, since its earnings fell shy by about 10 million.

  • Despite everyone's best efforts and a later cult following, neither the Spice nor the profits managed to flow.

  • They defend the Spice and Aziz to their relationship with the spice.

  • Who knows?

  • Number six Jupiter Ascending the Wachowskis Air No stranger to sci fi epics.

  • But this original outing of theirs failed to live up to their other work.

  • U E O I am following a young woman who discovers she is the heir to an intergalactic empire and her attempts to save Earth.

  • Jupiter ascending has been roundly criticized for its lame dialogue, disjointed plot and campy acting.

  • And those criticisms translated to a poor performance at the box office.

  • $176 million went into its budget, and after a paltry 47 million in domestic earnings, the film Onley ascended to $183 million in its worldwide gross, I Create Life and I destroyed number five mortal engines.

  • Based on the book Siris of the same name.

  • Mortal Engines is set in a post apocalyptic world with huge motorized cities and follows a conspiracy in mobile London.

  • They don't know what they're playing with.

  • Fire director Peter Jackson has been lauded for his previous book to screen adaptations.

  • Well, some of them.

  • But this is easily the most costly in losses where the budget estimated between 101 150 million plus post production and marketing costs, Mortal engines pulled in $83 million at the box office.

  • This is all my fault.

  • This loss the studio many tens of million's and made the film not just one of the biggest sci fi box office bombs, but a giant fail of any genre on the great game of survival.

  • This is check Mate number four Blade Runner.

  • Although this cyberpunk detective film about a hunter of Androids has since been hailed as a masterpiece and as one of the best sci fi movies ever made, its initial reception was much more lukewarm.

  • I want you to go put the machine on.

  • And if the machine doesn't work with many audiences disliking, it's relatively slow and thoughtful pace, it's box office returns barely exceeded its $30 million budget.

  • Painful living fear, isn't it?

  • It Sadly, it's sequel.

  • Blade Runner, 2049 would follow in its footsteps 35 years later and become another flop with many of the same box office issues.

  • Despite critical praise, all those potential profits lost in time like tears and rain.

  • Number three Battlefield Earth, an adaptation of a book by Scientology creator L.

  • Ron Hubbard, was always going to be a risky proposition, and it turned out that the financial risk was not worth the reward.

  • What do you know about God's way?

  • Have seen God's rock and I both lying thieves.

  • Battlefield Earth follows a group of humans rebelling against alien overlords in the future.

  • Yet it's generic.

  • Premise has rarely been received quite so portly.

  • Everything you humans new is here on, you can look at anything you want because there is nothing that will help you.

  • This legendary bomb even led to the collapse of its production company, although falsely overstating the budget to investors was also a prime factor number two supernova.

  • It's never a good sign when a director disowns a movie and asked Toe, have their name removed from the credits.

  • Bring this place up despite a decent cast.

  • In effect, Supernova is yet another spaceship encounters Evil force, leading to lots of death movie, which was all too common in the nineties.

  • Audiences were evidently tired of them to, since the film on Lee earned just shy of 15 million in theaters.

  • That's what's called in the business.

  • Not so good, considering it's $90 million budget.
