Cats – $113 million
If there’s any film that deserved to lose money, it’s 2019’s Cats. There’s no point diving into the specifics of this movie. The trailers were bad, the costumes were horrendous, and it was a remake of the stage musical that nobody asked for. We were truly disappointed to learn that Idris Elba and Ian McKellen had agreed to star in this fiasco of a film.
The film became a meme immediately after the trailers were released. There was absolutely no way it would make money, and apparently, that was the case. In fac=t, estimates show that the production studios lost close to $113 million. Shame on the execs who gave the greenlight to make this movie.
