It turns out when you take a beloved ’80s campy sci-fi fantasy cartoon series and turn it into a relatively grounded millennial drama about fame in the viral age, you make a movie for no one, and end up with the worst wide release by a major studio in modern Hollywood history. Even worse: This film won’t be able to make back its tiny $5 million budget.

Victor Frankenstein’s dismal debut is especially sour news for Radcliffe, who has yet to headline a major hit since the modest success of his 2012 horror movie The Woman in Black.
Curiously, 20th Century Fox had initially slated Victor Frankenstein to open on Oct. 2, a much more forgiving month for a big-budget horror film. But the studio ended up switching the opening dates for this movie and The Martian — which at least paid off handsomely for the latter sci-fi adventure.

Director Robert Zemeckis (Flight, Cast Away) won raves for his use of 3D filmmakingin telling the true story of tightrope walker Philippe Petit’s quest to walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. Sony Pictures aggressively sold the film as a must-see event, but audiences had no interest. Perhaps it was the prospect of experiencing that tightrope walk in 3D; perhaps it was the uncomfortable memory of the Twin Towers; or perhaps it was star Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s elfin French accent. Whatever the reason, even this film’s initial limited release on
Sept. 30 in 448 theaters was a non-starter, with just $1.56 million for $3,483 per theater.
Domestic opening weekend: $3.9 million
Number of theaters: 2,567
