Movies. Major film flops of this year. From Ender’s Game to The Lone Ranger

Flops. List of major economic failures of 2013: Ender’s Game, The Fifth State, After Earth, White House Down, Bullet to the Head, Paranoia and The Lone Ranger.


Ender’s Game footage

Ender’s Game by Gavin Hood (action, science fiction). Starring Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, and Hailee Steinfeld. Budget of 115 million dollars and only grossed 90 at the box office.

The Fifth Estate by Bill Condon (thriller). Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Brühl, and Carice van Houten. Only grossed 8.5 million dollars at the box office.

After Earth by M. Night Shyamalan (action, science fiction). Starring Jaden Smith, David Denman, and Will Smith. Budget of 110 million dollars and only grossed 245 at the box office. We could think that it is sufficient, but expectations were much higher.

White House Down by Roland Emmerich (thriller). Starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, and Maggie Gyllenhaal. The film had no losses but has been a big disappointment too.

Bullet to the Head by Walter Hill (crime, thriller). Starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, and Christian Slater. It has generated great economic losses.

Paranoia by Robert Luketic (drama). Starring Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, and Harrison Ford. It seems Harrison Ford is not a trend anymore.

The Lone Ranger by Gore Verbinski (Western). Starring Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, and William Fichtner. Major failure of the year. Disney cannot be happy at all!

Definitely, maybe these movies were high quality, maybe their actors and actresses played their roles fantastic, maybe the plots were interesting or maybe Yareah likes them, but no money means failure in this world (it’s a shame! A great shame!)

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
