Worst Movies of 2016


And here goes another blog dedicated to 2016. 2017 is close and we already have a list of good movies hitting the theaters next year. Well, this year a lot of promising movies came out. Some of them justified the hype, while some of them failed to withstand it. And then there is a third category.
Movie that disappointed every cinephile, bombed at the box office and made everyone ask for a refund.

Here is a list of 10 worst movies of 2016.

1. Warcraft

Released: May 24, 2016

Director: Duncan Jones

Cast: Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell

Budget: $160 million

Box office: $433.5 million

This movie is the very definition why movies based on video games are failing at box office.

2. Ben-Hur

Released: August 9, 2016

Director: Timur Bekmambetov

Cast: Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell, Rodrigo Santoro, Nazanin Boniadi, Ayelet Zurer

Budget: $100 million

Box office: $94.1 million

It was a bad decision to remake a masterpiece. It lacked everything that made the original so popular.

3. Independence Day: Resurgence

Released: June 20, 2016

Director: Roland Emmerich

Cast: Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Jessie T. Usher

Budget: $165 million

Box office: $389.7 million

So they took two decades to make a sequel that is both uninteresting and lifeless.

And guess what, Will Smith is not there.

4. Allegiant

Released: March 18, 2016

Director: Robert Schwentke

Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jeff Daniels, Miles Teller

Budget: $110 million

Box office: $179.2 million

Divergent gave hopes for a promising franchise. Guess every movie about a dystopian future where a girl raises her voice against the authority can’t be as successful as The Hunger Games.

5. Suicide Squad

Released: August 1, 2016

Director: David Ayer

Cast: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis

Budget: $175 million

Box office: $745.6 million

It is a light movie where bad guys turn good and save the day. No, I am not talking about Guardians of the Galaxy.

6. American Pastoral

Released: September 9, 2016

Director: Ewan McGregor

Cast: Ewan McGregor, Jennifer Connelly, Dakota Fanning, Peter Riegert, Rupert Evans, Uzo Aduba

Box office: $1.6 million

If you watched the movie in a theater, I feel bad for you.

7. Collateral Beauty

Released: December 13, 2016

Director: David Frankel

Cast: Will Smith, Edward Norton, Keira Knightley, Michael Peña, Naomie Harris

Budget: $36 million

Box office: $14.1 million

This movie had Will Smith in it, but still somehow managed to end up becoming a disaster.

8. The Forest

Released: January 8, 2016

Director: Jason Zada

Cast: Natalie Dormer, Taylor Kinney, Yukiyoshi Ozawa, Eoin Macken

Budget: $10 million

Box office: $37.6 million

Natalie Dormer appeared in a dull and a movie that recycles the basic plot of a psychological thriller.

9. Zoolander 2

Released: February 4, 2016

Director: Ben Stiller

Cast: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Penélope Cruz, Kristen Wiig

Budget: $50 million

Box office: $56 million

The original was a great success due to its brilliant use of satire. This one simply borrows the elements from the original and turned it into a complete mess.

10. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Released: March 19, 2016

Director: Zack Snyder

Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane

Budget: $250 million

Box office: $873.3 million

It was supposed to be the biggest hit of the year, and it failed to achieve both critical and financial success.
