What’s the latest curse word in film? Cinematic franchises.
Everywhere you look, someone is starting one. Hell, even Adam Sandler is slowly building one on Netflix and none of us are brave enough to stop him before it’s too late.
Whether you like the concept or not, it’s become a cornerstone of modern cinema and it’s not going away for a long time – unless audiences stop supporting it. With all the news about the DCEU and whether it’s officially canceled after Justice League (it won’t be), we decided to look back at some real franchise flops of recent years.
The definition of ‘flop’ might differ from person to person, of course, so we encourage you to make use of the comments section down below and let us know your thoughts. As always, we like to keep things civil between us friends – just because the world has gone crazy doesn’t mean we have to as well.
With that said, hit that next page button and let’s explore some true franchise flops.
