A big box office is not a sign of a good movie. Almost always a sign of great marketing. But it is even more a sign of the continuation of any successful project, which is what the films we have chosen are. Below we talk about the top five bad films that have managed to gross over $ 1 billion at the box office. Go.
Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)
Fees: 1 104 054 072 $
If we talk about the chronology of “Transformers” from the first to the fourth film, then it will look something like this: not bad, so-so, bad and very bad. Almost the entire Transformers franchise, including the Age of Extinction, is a great example of how films, with the help of just one good picture, collect hundreds of millions of dollars and cannot stop.
Captain Marvel (2019)
Fees: 1 128 274 794 $
Since its release, Captain Marvel has flown wherever it can, except at the box office, of course. Most Marvel fans had high hopes for this movie. Firstly, it was the last one before the final, and secondly, this is the first project about a woman superhero in the MCU. But it turned out what happened. The plot turned out to be banal, the characters are cardboard, but the film itself is boring and drawn-out. For these reasons, the audience is unhappy, but the critics, as always, are confused.
Fees: 1 148 061 807 $
Popular DC comics hero Aquaman is a character who was lucky enough to have a separate film (and even a sequel is planned), but who never lived up to expectations. The film about Aquaman turned out to be childish and ordinary. The actors played mediocre, although the cast was not the worst. Among others, Nicole Kidman can be noted as Queen of Atlantis. The main disadvantage of the picture is the simplest plot that does not withstand any intrigue. The main plus is a famous hero and a beautiful visual component, which, coupled with the release date, pulled the lion’s share of the fees.
Fast and Furious 8 (2017)
Fees: 1236005118 $
The plot of “Fast and the Furious 8” can be briefly described as a dance on the bones of the deceased franchise. Let’s be honest, on the good, this series of films ended with “Fast and the Furious 5”. But the subsequent parts also have their pluses and fans. “Fast and Furious 8” does not stand up to any criticism, because it can boast of nothing but familiar faces on the screen. There are no good plot twists, but what is really there, not even mediocre ones. The performance of the actors is at the usual low level, but the film itself looks like an economically viable, tortured continuation of the story, which should have been left alone long ago.
Black Panther (2018)
Fees: 1 346 913 161 $
“Black Panther” can be at the top of the “best films” according to Rotten Tomatoes as much as it wants, but that does not change the fact that the picture is grossly overrated. The film turned out to be frankly prolonged, the characters are boring, and the message, no matter how strong it is, does not cause much delight. We have already seen all this, but the Marvel studio itself, no matter how hard it tries to “jump” into the suit of “tolerance”, has long ceased to please with a good product.
