Typically, a film’s success at the box office reveals a lot about its future. The better a movie does, the more likely we’ll see a sequel or franchise. But every now and then, a great movie comes along that just tanks in theaters. It can be due to bad marketing, or other times it’s simply lost in a sea of movies in the same genre.
