The Biggest Box-Office Bombs of the Summer (So Far)
The sci-fi/comedy/action film "R.I.P.D." opened this past weekend to crappy reviews and an even crappier take at the box-office.
The movie, which stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as two undead cops on the hunt for ghostly criminals, earned itself a dismal 10 percent rating at Rotten Tomatoes. It also had an estimated budget of $130 million, but only managed to earn about $20 million back thus far.
As with any box-office flop, it's hard to pinpoint exactly why audiences failed to flock to the theaters. Maybe they never saw the previews. Maybe they didn't care for the lead actors. Or maybe they've already seen a supernatural buddy-cop movie called "Men In Black."
Whatever the reason, "R.I.P.D." is shaping up to be a huge bomb. But at least it's got company during 2013's summer-movie season.
