Top 10 Movies that Were Doomed to Fail

These are the movies that were doomed long before they ever hit theaters whether its due to problems behind the scenes, movies adapted from beloved franchises, remakes that no one asked for, movies people didn't even want in the first place or for any other reason.
The Top Ten
1 The Emoji Movie

As soon as the words 'Emoji' and 'movie' were put in the same sentence, it was already a sign that this movie would fail. Everyone knew that this movie was going to fail, and indeed, it failed spectacularly.

2 Super Mario Bros.

It was the very first movie based on a video game to be adapted into a live-action movie. As soon as people saw that it resembled nothing like the video game it was based on, they knew this movie would fail. Moreover, production was a complete nightmare. Bob Hopkins, John Leguizamo, and Dennis Hopper all expressed their dislike for working on the movie. Hopkins and Leguizamo even mentioned that they were constantly drunk during filming to make the experience more tolerable.

3 Jack and Jill

This movie was doomed by the mere fact that it not only stars Adam Sandler, whose movie career has been in the toilet for the last couple of years, but it also features Adam Sandler in drag as his own twin sister. One Adam Sandler character is bad enough, but to feature two in one movie - now that's torture.

They ruined the nursery rhyme!

4 The Mummy (2017)
5 The Last Airbender
6 Dragon Ball: Evolution

Hollywood really needs to stop adapting beloved anime series into live-action movies. They just can never seem to get it right.

All you get is attractive Goku and pretty girls Bulma and Chi-Chi, and some karate.

7 Psycho (1998)
8 Ghostbusters (2016)

As soon as it was announced that they were rebooting Ghostbusters with an all-female lead cast, people immediately hated it and assumed it would be terrible. When they finally saw the movie, it was still disappointing, though you really can't blame the cast as they were literally given nothing to work with.

Do I even need to explain why this movie sucks?

9 Suicide Squad
10 Son of the Mask
The Contenders
11 Death Note (2017)

We all have to accept the sad fact that Hollywood will never make a decent live-action movie based on a beloved anime series. This film adaptation of the amazing Death Note anime is just downright insulting.

This is one of the worst live-action anime remakes of all time!

12 From Justin to Kelly
13 Cool World

The movie had a lot of problems during production. Ralph Bakshi had pitched the idea to Paramount Pictures and had a completely different vision for the movie than the one we actually saw. Thanks to interference from the studio, Ralph was not too happy with all the changes that were made.

I noticed that. This is why executive meddling is detrimental and why preferring to use original ideas is much better. I wouldn't want anyone taking away my creativity if I were to make something, that's for sure.

14 Speed 2: Cruise Control
15 Foodfight!

There were so many problems behind the scenes that it was destined to fail.

16 Battleship
17 Kazaam
18 Bratz
19 Cats
20 Cop Out

Kevin Smith had always wanted to work with Bruce Willis. Unfortunately, he quickly found out how difficult Willis was to work with, such that filming became a nightmare.
