Rosie O'Donnell declared Madonna's movie "brilliant." She says the same thing about any turd that drops out of Madonna's ass.
At least Angelina's movie was in Serbian (or whatever). It's a testament to the power of Harvey that he was able to wrangle an Oscar nomination for that piece of shit Madge 'directed'.
Don't forget the biggest flop of all time, Les Miserables!
John Carter was definitely a flop based on its cost, but it did earn over $280M ($70+M domestic, $200+M foreign), so it did cover its production budget.
Was The Paperboy the Zefron and Kidman film?

She's a good, loyal, longtime friend. Perhaps that's a foreign concept to you.

But the studio doesn't see that full $280 million. Theater owners aren't running a charity. They split the box office, so the studio is only seeing about 55% of that $280 million. Meaning Disney LOST money. Of course there are other revenue streams (DVD, TV rights, merchandise, etc) but who knows if that makes up for it? I'm guessing not.
r11: Or a good, loyal, devoted asskisser.
Rosie is ultimately a fangirl who made good.
Don't feed the troll. This thread was obviously just started to bash Madonna.
OP could care less what other films flopped this year.
W.E. actually under performed, but not by much.
It was always deemed an "art house" film so no one expected it to gross any kind of real $$.
Ditto with Jolie's movie.
A flop, dear OP, is John Carter.
A flop, dear OP, is is Alex Cross.
I'll have you know that "W.E." made 12 Million alone in Latvia.

[quote]W.E. actually under performed, but not by much.
Hmm, it didn't even make one million WORLDWIDE box office. The film cost $15 million. It's a flop.
r15 & r16 = desperate Madonna fanbots, humiliated by the spectacularly low figures for "W.E."
Oh, and "Swept Away" was also just an 'arthouse film', and yet it is considered a massive flop, everywhere, by everyone. Why should different rules apply to "W.E." then?
Guess what, fanbots?
True arthouse films don't receive a media blitz PR campaign, to promote the movie. They aren't pushed at the Golden Globes, either.
Both Madonna and the studio were expecting this film to do 'ok', at least better than the other turds in her filmograhpy.
Starfuckers like Harvey Weinstein BADLY wanted this film to 'happen'. Sadly, it never did. It was... a flop! A flop, commensurate to the expectations attached to it.
If the leading lady of a film gets a cover on 'Glamour Magazine' or 'Vogue', together with the director of her film, then everybody involved believes at least SOME of the large readership will go out and see that film.
But none of them did! The film disappeared almost as quickly as Madonna's album 'MDNA', which flew down the charts as well.
See now how stupid you look, fanbots?
Being an art-house movie is no excuse to fail to clear even a piddly 1 million. The movie is a huge critical failure, it has a pathetic 13% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. If it had been any good, it could've been an art-house hit and made 10 million and up.
A flop, dear r15, is Madonna's latest turd.
R18 really needs to see a shrink...stat!
It's like a crazy man's ramblings.
I hope he is nowhere near any firearms.
"My film was never meant to be SUCCESSFUL!!!!"
Hi Madonna fanbot at r20!
Nice to see you've run out of talking points.
Madonna has had a rough year this year! Flop upon flop. Don't let that drag you down, though... you sound irritated.
She will be out with new material in no time, anyway.
I still love her old music btw.
[quote]See now how stupid you look, fanbots?
Less stupid than you for failing to realize that r16 was obviously joking, tbh.
Apologies to r16, as I meant r14 in my post at r18. It was indeed a typo.
You can be relieved, r23.
Not a fanbot...just sick of this bitch being talked about non-stop on DL. No wonder no one good posts here anymore.
R25, you're projecting.
The thread is called "Box office flops of 2012"
It's not a Madonna thread.
Coriolanus = worldwide: $1,072,602
Production budget: $10 million
[quote]Rosie is ultimately a fangirl who made good.
And that just chaps your ass doesn't it Sweetie.
Anyway, let's make a list of the flops Madonna has piled up this year. Just to piss off the fanbots!
- MDNA raced down the charts faster than any other other album in billboard history (in its second week of release). FLOP!
- all three singles off the album failed to register with the general public OR radio stations. Two of them didn't even enter the top 100. FLOP, FLOP and FLOP!
- Her Superbowl performance (the only highlight of her year) failed to generate any interest in her single, 'Give Me All Your Luvin'. FLOP!
- Zero Grammy nominations for the album, not even for electronic and/or dance album. FLOP!
- "W.E." failed to do any business worldwide, not even in the UK, the most loyal Madonna market anywhere. FLOP!
- Her Golden Globe winning song, 'Masterpiece', wasn't even released as a soundtrack single, due to lack of interest in the film. FLOP!
- "W.E." stands at 13 % on rottentomatoes. FLOP!
- Her tour, shockingly, has done less business than the previous one. How embarrassing, considering her tours were the big selling argument for that 120 million contract with LN. FLOP!
- She even had to cancel the Australian leg of her tour, because they couldn't sell enough tickets there. And she hasn't even toured Australia in twenty years! FLOP!
What a flop year for Madonna!
what Terry said I am alarmed that a mother able to get paid $9646 in 1 month on the computer. have you seen this web page FAB33.COM
yeah, r22, and r29, she's such a flop that you've posted DOZENS and DOZENS of times to suggest this.
The world of facts thinks otherwise.
This was one of her biggest years. Ever.
But, enough feeding the deluded troll (are you EJ by any chance?) since this isn't even a Madonna thread.
r31, the facts tell us that two of her three singles failed to crack the top 100.
You do know what facts are, right?
[quote]Don't feed the troll. This thread was obviously just started to bash Madonna.
Madbot calling someone else a troll. LMFAO
ABOUT CHERRY, with James Franco, Heather Graham, and Lili Taylor only managed a measly $3,000. It was... er... an art film, but that is pretty impressively disastrous.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
