The Film

  • Box Office Bomb: Budget, $60 million. Box office, $19,452,138 (domestically), $60,052,138 (worldwide).
  • Duelling Movies: With the second remake of Carrie. Both films are based on novels about misunderstood teenage girls with supernatural abilities, released in 2013. They were originally slated for release within a month of each other, but Carrie was pushed back to October in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.
  • Genre-Killer: The film was one of the three films whose failure at the box-office killed the paranormal subgenre of YA Novel adaptations that seemed to be on its way out as far back as late 2010.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Jeremy Irons did the film to pay for his castle.
  • Still Born Franchise: The film’s box office failure has doomed any chances of seeing the three other books in the series being adapted into sequels. Fans wouldn't have cared due to not liking how executives handled the film.
