* ''[[VideoGame/PriPara Tobidasu [=PriPara=]: Aim For It With Everyone! Idol Grandprix]]'', despite the success of the first ''[=PriPara=]'' movie half a year before, was only screened in fifteen theaters in the entire country because Avex Pictures did not think it would do that well since they saw it as a quickly done cash-grab for its' 3D gimmick. Combine that with the film being released on the same day as ''Film/{{Pan}}'' and the ''Anime/GoPrincessPrettyCure'' movie, and the movie didn't gross as much as the two films based on the franchise that followed it or its' predecessor. To make matters worse, all the other ''[=PriPara=]'' and ''[[VideoGame/PrettyRhythmAuroraDream Pretty Rhythm]]'' films have been released to DVD and Blu-ray and have sold many copies in the process, this film hasn't received one, meaning there will be no possible way for the film to make back its' budget, unlike most [[BoxOfficeBomb box office bombs]].

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Bogdanovich Peter Bogdanovich's]] ''Film/{{Texasville}}'' the long-awaited sequel of ''Film/TheLastPictureShow'', is another example of getting "Screwed by the Studio" (and Bogdanovich actually used those words to describe it). Creator/ColumbiaPictures was supposed to re-release ''Picture Show'' - which was rarely shown on TV and never released on video at the time - prior to releasing the sequel, a promise that was later reneged. Originally 2½ hours, Bogdanovich cut 25 minutes off of ''Texasville'', predominantly scenes that would have not made sense to a viewer that had not seen the earlier film. To make matters worse, Columbia subsequently dumped ''Texasville'' with limited distribution. A director's cut was released on Laserdisc, and nowhere else.

* The 1992 slapstick comedy ''Film/BrainDonors'' (a modern-day Three Stooges-meets-The Marx Brothers-style farce starring John Turturro) was originally produced by [[Film/{{Airplane}} David and]] [[Film/TheNakedGun Jerry Zucker]] as ''Lame Ducks'' for Creator/{{Paramount}}. However, when the Zuckers left for another studio, Paramount scrapped the planned publicity campaign, changed the title, and withdrew the film after its initial screenings. It sank into obscurity and has since developed a cult following due to the VHS/DVD releases.

* ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017 My Little Pony: The Movie]]'' not only was released against ''Film/BladeRunner2049'' (which itself under-performed expectations) and on Columbus Day weekend, but it also had the misfortune of opening a week after the attack on the Las Vegas strip [[note]] which left nobody in a rather good mood to see a movie[[/note]] and during the time people were evacuating the Gulf Coast for Hurricane Nate. Coupled with a mediocre marketing campaign (most of the marketing aside from TV spots and trailers were handled by Hasbro's toy sales), and a failed attempt by Hasbro to acquire Lionsgate, and Hasbro decided to strike a deal with Creator/{{Paramount}} to co-produce and co-fiance their own slate of films, likely shutting Lionsgate out of any future ''My Little Pony'' movies.
