‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’
Release date: May 12, 2017
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Production budget: $175 million
Worldwide gross: $148.7 million
Director Guy Ritchie's big-budget re-imagination of the classic "King Arthur" story flopped so badly that it earned just $15 million on opening weekend. It never came close to recouping its budget, which was $300 million, according to IndieWire, when you include marketing.
Among the problems were that it was released on Mother's Day weekend, yet was geared almost exclusively to men. And, it debuted during a time that was crowded with good movies.
