Largest Box Office Loss
Some movies are based on disaster stories, others actually become them. Cutthroat Island, the pirate-thriller, made a splash for all the wrong reasons on its release in 1995. The film cost $100 million to produce, promote, and distribute, but recovered just $11 million at the international box-office. As well as walking the plank commercially, the film was panned by critics. The Washington Post remarked, "Cutthroat's lame cliffhangers are enough to make you a cliff jumper."
