20Flop — King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Charlie Hunnam King Arthur Legend of the Sword

Released just last year, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was a box office bomb of epic proportions. The reimagining of the Arthurian legend was spurned by both critics and audiences alike, grossing only $148.7 million against a $175 million production budget and earning the film a 31% approval

rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

When factoring in the cost of marketing, some have estimated that King Arthur: Legend of the Sword lost over $150 million.

Many wondered why the production budget was so big in the first place. Apparently, Warner Bros. wanted the film to be the first of a six-part cinematic universe. Of course, those plans were quickly scrapped when King Arthur only managed to finish third at the North American box office during its opening weekend.
