Here's another unloved sci-fi flick ripe for Cinema Sins' brutal crosshairs. Sink, sank, sunk.
Tomorrow the nominees for the 2013 Academy Awards will be announced, and we'll celebrate the best of cinema in 2012. But today's the day to celebrate the worst in cinema last year with the announcement of 2013 Razzie Awards nominees. So, which sci-fi flicks got the, ahem, "honor" of a nomination (or 10)? You can probably guess.
The folks at MovieMistakes.com are at it again, and have released a breakdown of the most popular movie mistakes of 2012. Not surprisingly, sci-fi flicks make up a pretty big part of the list. So which sci-fi flick landed closest to the top?
It's been well over a month since Battleship hit U.S. theaters. But the Peter Berg-directed feature's been given the cold-shoulder by audiences. The film's earned a mere $63 million Stateside, while scoring $235 million overseas. What happened? According to Berg, The Avengers happened.
Though Disney's John Carter took the brunt of the heat for being this year's first flop, another big budget extravaganza actually did worse: The board game-inspired, alien invasion flick Battleship.
The Battleship has been sunk. The experts were expecting the boardgame-inspired alien invasion flick to have a soft U.S. opening this weekend, but no one thought it'd be quite this bad.
The year's first big box office bomb has already dropped in Disney's John Carter, and prognosticators think the board game-inspired alien invasion flick Battleship could be the next to crash and burn—mostly because of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
With Universal's Battleship steaming out of the gates today, what's going on with those other big-screen board game adaptations? Are they still stuck in port or cruising for the silver screen?
Taylor Kitsch already took on aliens in John Carter, and in the latest clip from Battleship, he's at it again—but this time all he has is a glorified lifeboat against an alien gun torrent.
