BIGGEST BOX OFFICE BOMBS: #15 Battlefield Earth (2000)
BIGGEST BOX OFFICE BOMBS: #16 Inchon (1981)

BIGGEST BOX OFFICE BOMBS: #18 Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever (2002)

BIGGEST BOX OFFICE BOMBS: #20 Red Planet (2000)
The Damage: It only grossed 33 million worldwide on a 80 million dollar budget and opened at number 5 on the box office. It also seriously damaged Val Kilmer’s career.
The Reason: The movie itself was terrible (imagine 2001 mixed with Armageddon), but it was also fighting against Charlie’s Angels, Little Nicky and Meet the Parents.
