* ''Film/{{Silence}}'', a long gestating passion project from Creator/MartinScorsese, got a piss poor release in the States. Rather than have a 2017 release (Scorsese just finished editing ''two months before release''), due to awards potential, Paramount gave it a Christmas release, had it playing in less theaters then the other awards contenders and gave it minimal advertising. Even when they [[http://variety.com/2017/film/news/paramount-expands-martin-scorsese-silence-oscar-nominations-1201964362/ expanded the amount of theaters later on]], it was too late and the film became [[BoxOfficeBomb a flop]].

* ''Film/OsmosisJones'' was envisioned first as a PG-13-rated animated adult comedy film, with swearing, excessive violence and gross-out live-action sequences in the script. Halfway through production, however, the [[AnimationAgeGhetto animation-is-for-kids mentality]] kicked in at Warner Bros. and a number of changes were ordered, turning it into a PG-rated buddy cop film for family audiences, though the live-action sequences remained. Since Warner Bros. had no idea if ''Osmosis Jones'' was either an adult film or children's film, they proceeded to sent it to an August weekend and gave it a rather confusing marketing campaign, which tuned potential audiences out. It grossed just $14 million on a $70 million budget in its theatrical running, leading to a massive loss of money at Warner Bros. and accelerating the death spiral of Warner Bros. Feature Animation (''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'', released a couple years later, just put the coffin on the ground).

* ‘’Theatre/TheCrucible’’: It’s not known why Fox had no hope in this movie. Despite receiving plenty of hype from critics and the film being major OscarBait material ([[TropesAreTools in a good way]]), Fox dumped the film into a limited amount of theaters and gave it barely any advertising, resulting in the film [[SarcasmMode shockingly]] becoming a BoxOfficeBomb [[AcclaimedFlop despite good reviews from critics.]]

** The same problem plauged the movie of fellow BanDai property ''Film/HappinessChargePrettyCure!'' two years prior, but with a better outcome. It opened at number 5 and earned 100,000,000 yen due to Typhoon Vongfong, but it made enough money to become the highest grossing non-Pretty Cure All Stars film of all time, only beaten by [[Anime/MahoGirlsPrecure Maho Girls Pretty Cure: Cure Mofurun's Transformation of Miracles!]] two years later.

* Terry Jones' ''Literature/TheWindInTheWillows'' barely got a theatrical release by Disney in the States after its poor box office in the UK.
