While several films such as Finding Dory, The Secret Lives of Pets and even Suicide Squad (despite its poor critical reception) did some very impressive business at the box office, this summer season was packed full of dud movies. Interestingly, many of them were films that were predicted to be big successes but, in the event, fell someway short of the mark.
One explanation for this is that there were just too many ‘must-see’ movies around this year. Usually a big release would have a while to build up a healthy box office but, in 2016, they only had a few days before the next hotly-anticipated film was stealing their thunder.
Whatever the reason may be for their failure, here are the eight biggest box office flops of the summer. Take a look at them starting on the next page and let us know if you think any of the films listed here deserved to do better.
