THR takes look at the notable underachievers:

Cowboys & Aliens
Directed by Jon Favreau and featuring James Bond star Daniel Craig, the $163 million-budgeted movie mixed two genres: Westerns and alien pics. Unfortunately, audiences didn’t embrace the result. From Universal and DreamWorks, Cowboys & Aliens has cumed only $129 million to date, including $93.5 million domestically and $35.5 million overseas (where it still has some territories yet to open).

Larry Crowne
