According to Wiki/TheOtherWiki, the biggest confirmed flop of all time, according to the ''Guinness Book of World Records'' (before the category was retired), was ''Film/CutthroatIsland'' with an inflation adjusted loss of $140 million. This catastrophic failure along with ''Film/{{Showgirls}}'' instantly crushed Creator/CarolcoPictures as a result. The current largest ''confirmed'' loss is ''WesternAnimation/SinbadLegendOfTheSevenSeas'' with a $163 million loss pushing ''Island'' into second place. Other contenders that may have lost more as their losses are given as a range are ''Film/The13thWarrior'' with an upper figure of $185 million lost, ''Film/TheLoneRanger'' with an upper figure of $195 million lost and ''Film/JohnCarter'' with an upper figure of ''$209 million'' lost. All three of these were from Creator/{{Disney}} (though the latter most has the Touchstone Pictures label attached to it, due to its more adult content), a multibillion-dollar company that '''easily''' weathered those losses unlike Carolco. ''Film/KingArthurLegendOfTheSword'' is challenging for the runner up spot with a projected loss of $150 million likely as of October 2017.

* '''Other circumstances:''' Sometimes movies flop due to something that's not directly related to the movie itself or the movie industry as a whole. For example, the first film to lose over a million dollars, ''Film/{{Intolerance}}'', came out at a time when its antiwar sentiments (which were widely held just months earlier) were going against the popular pro-war wave of late 1916. {{Funny Aneurysm Moment}}s and TooSoon tend to hit {{disaster movie}}s' sales very hard when bad timing happens; the September 11th attacks and the Indian Ocean tsunami, for example, killed a lot of those even though they were obviously filmed prior to the catastrophes. Maybe your headlining actor make a derogatory comment that leads to a boycott of the film. The same effect involves comedies lampooning airports, airlines, and the security process, which all brought down the film adaptation of ''Literature/BigTrouble'', which was bumped to the DumpMonths from its original position ten days after the 11th. Another example of unfortunate timing is if a movie's [[GenreKiller genre is killed]] prior to release.
