Okay, should we consider TMNT: Out of the Shadows a flop?

You know what, I'm getting impatient, so I'm doing it.

I'd hold off. It's not doing well, I'll give you that. But bomb? Not likely. It's almost made its budget back in under two weeks.

So chances are it'll make money by month's end. So it wouldn't really count. Underperforming isn't the same as bombing.

So, you think The Hateful 8 should be added to this list?

Why? With a budget of 54 million and a box office of 155.7 million it didn't exactly lose money

It didn't fare too well in the United States.

I understand that for some reason, Tim Burton's Batman took a $36 million write-down thanks to Hollywood Accounting. Should I list that as a bomb?

About the stuff jameygamer added to Kundun, I think the problems China had with the film wasn't about it being a Box Office Bomb but because it was about a Tibetian Lama

Anyone object to having Pacific Rim removed?

I would say go for it since it made enough to get a sequel, but I may be wrong

I've read the premise to Not Fade Away, and it sounds like an Alienating Cliché Storm.

Would Pacific Rim fall under this? According to the Internet Movie Database, it cost $190 million to produce (not including marketing) and has so far made back $101 million internationally. I notice it's in Acclaimed Flop though.

Could someone please define what the article means by "other countries don't exist"?

Should we really list anything which didn't do well domestically as a bomb? I've seen a couple of movies in this list whose status as a bomb is...rather questionable, to say the least.

Not only that, but U.S./Canada is only "domestic" to the United States! I'd dearly love to see more movies from off the continent myself, including material that was unsuccessful in its own homeland.
