Great Films That Lost Money

October 22, 2016
SUPPORT

 

Not all films that flop are bad, not at all. Film history is riddled with great films that didn’t make money upon their initial release. Citizen Cane, The Wizard of Oz, Blade Runner all lost money. Heather, Jeff, and Rusty take a close look at three films, Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, Martin Scorsese’s King of Comedy, and Brad Birds animated film The Iron Giant. What went wrong? What did the films get right to later be reconsidered? Was it marketing? Timing? Or maybe the film was just ahead of its time. Join us this week as we look at great films that lost money.
