Terminator: Dark Fate may have flopped at the box office this weekend, but is it the biggest failure of 2019? Let’s have a look at five significant movie fails of the year (so far).
The movie weekend (Nov. 1-Nov. 3) was a slow one. Terminator: Dark Fate took the top spot, but it’s really nothing to be proud of when it achieved No. 1 with such low figures. According to Box Office Mojo, Dark Fate premiered to $29 million domestically and $94.6 million overseas, for a “grand” total of $123.6 million. That may not seem terrible, but the source also reports that the movie’s budget was $185 million, so it has a long way to go if it wants to collect profit.
Joker came in at No. 2, adding $13.9 million to its total and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which was No. 1 last week, collected another $12.1 million. This weekend also saw the debuts of two movies: Harriet and Motherless Brooklyn.
While Harriet can be spotted at No. 4 with $12 million domestically, Motherless Brooklyn barely makes the cut at No. 9 with a low $3.6 million. Which movie did you watch this weekend?
Terminator: Dark Fate‘s failure makes us want to look back at other flops so far this year. Here are five memorable movie fails, or rather, forgettable movies:
Movie: The Kid Who Would Be King
Total gross: $32 million
Budget: $60 million
Movie: Miss Bala
Total gross: $15.3 million
Budget: $15 million
Total gross: $41 million
Budget: $50 million
Movie: The Goldfinch

Budget: $45 million
Movie: The Kitchen

Which of the above movies did you watch in theaters? Are you surprised by any of the results? There are still many movies to look forward to! Let’s hope those do a little better than the above flops.
Midway, Doctor Sleep, and Playing with Fire are set to premiere in theaters Nov. 8. Do you plan on watching one of these movies or are you waiting for the debut of another?
