While 2017 turned out to be a very good year in terms of the overall quality of films released, it was one of the worst in terms of box office performance. According to Box Office Mojo, 2017 ticket sales were the lowest in 25 years, as you’d have to go all the way back to 1992 to find a worst year. According to Exhibitor Relations senior analyst Jeff Bock, much of the blame for this drop off can be attributed to a mix of poorly-received remakes/reboots and increasing competition from streaming services such as Netflix.
Superhero movies and pretty much everything put out by Disney continued to generate big business in 2017 but even the success of Star Wars: The Last Jedi hasn’t been enough to change the year from being an especially bad one financially for most of the major studios. And as with any year, there were some films that were hit harder than others and totally bombed at the box office. The following films represent 2017’s biggest box office flops.
