7 Great Movies That Never Deserved To Flop

Team FC

Hugo (2011) - Prime Video

Martin Scorsese's huge swing for the fences was an adorable tribute to cinema and to being a child, but audiences were not generous in their response to the film.

Tumbbad (2018) - N/A

Directed by Rahi Anil Barve, this horror film addresses the landscape of the human mind with its reliance on the shape of Indian history and mythology. Despite not being a commercial success, it found its well-deserved success much later.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E (2015) - N/A

Guy Ritchie refashioned an old, popular television show into a slick, fun thriller set on the Continent, but despite the inherent entertainment, the film failed to recoup its budget.

Blade Runner 2049 (2017) - JioCinema

The Denis Villeneuve-helmed sequel to Blade Runner (1982) met a similar fate to the original film: rave reviews but negligible box office returns.

Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year (2009) - Prime Video

Even though the film did not sit well with the audiences in its initial stage, Ranbir Kapoor as a salesman trying to balance between his career and the way of his heart eventually became one of his most memorable characters.

The Fabelmans (2022) - SonyLiv

Steven Spielberg's recreation of his childhood, his memories, and his love for cinema earned him plaudits across the board, but that wasn't enough to pull in sufficient audiences.

Fight Club (1999) - Prime Video

This David Fincher's cult classic was never a commercial success. The film takes us through the journey of an insomniac office worker and a soap salesman who form an underground fight club with a bunch of strangers.
