List of movies generating losses

Financial success is the primary reason that studios make movies. However not all films are guaranteed to be successful. A good indication of the success of a film is to look at the budget of the movie and then see what the gross income of that film was. Studios expect that a film’s “domestic” (which the film industry defines as the United States and Canada) box office gross will exceed production costs.
If it recoups this cost, then it can be considered a success; otherwise, it is often referred to as a box office bomb. It should be noted that different genres of film are subject to different standards of success. For example, action movies typically have higher production and promotion costs than romance movies.
