Biggest box office flops of 2013

Biggest box office flops of 2013 | ‘The Lone Ranger’
Disney’s Western reboot had Jerry Bruckheimer producing and bankable star Johnny Depp starring (in much-mocked makeup and headgear), but the company ended up taking a loss of at least $160 million.

Production budget: $225 million
Worldwide gross: $261 million (Peter Mountain / Disney / Jerry Bruckheimer Inc.)
‘After Earth’
The once high-flying director M. Night Shyamalan continued his box office slump with this Will Smith-starring sci-fi adventure that ended up one of Sony’s black holes for the summer.

Production budget: $135 million
Worldwide gross: $244 million (Frank Masi / Columbia Pictures)
‘R.I.P.D.’
Universal released “Fast & Furious 6" and “Despicable Me 2" in 2013, but not everything can be a hit, as this critically-panned zombie cop comedy proved.

Production budget: $130 million
Worldwide gross: $78.3 million (Scott Garfield / Universal Pictures)
‘White House Down’
Audiences were more interested in the competing film “Olympus Has Fallen.”

Production budget: $150 million
Worldwide gross: $205 million (Reiner Bajo / Columbia Pictures)
‘Paranoia’
At least Liam Hemsworth has “The Hunger Games.” This boardroom espionage thriller produced no return on investment.

Production budget: $35 million
Worldwide gross: $13.8 million (Peter Iovino / Relativity Media)
‘Bullet to the Head’
Sylvester Stallone’s action/thriller comic book adaptation probably should’ve stayed on the page.

Production budget: $55 million
Worldwide gross: $9.49 million (Frank Masi / Warner Bros.)
‘The Fifth Estate’
“Sherlock” star and voice-of-Smaug Benedict Cumberbatch played Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Few people saw it.

Production budget: $28 million
Worldwide gross: $8.56 million (Frank Connor / DreamWorks)
‘Oldboy’
Director Spike Lee’s remake of the Korean cult classic had a tepid release and ended up as one of the director’s worst-performing movies ever.

Production budget: $30 million
Worldwide gross: $4.09 million (Hilary Bronwyn Gayle / Film District)
‘47 Ronin’
It hasn’t been in the theaters long, but it’s safe to describe this Keanu-Reeves-starring samurai tale as a bomb. Universal says it has already accounted for the potential losses.

Production budget: $175 million
Worldwide gross: Undetermined (Frank Connor / Universal Pictures)
