Top 25 worst worldwide movie openings ever

Per statistics provided by the box-office reporting service Box Office Mojo, the 25 films that have achieved the highest-grossing opening weekends each earned more than $120 million. Such success is not only happy news for the studios that released these movies, but it also helps in the decision-making process toward deciding how long a film stays in theaters.

That said, where there’s a top, there’s a bottom — and these are the 25 films Box Office Mojo states had the worst wide opening weekends since 1982 (so don’t be surprised if you forgot about some of these).
