11. ‘The Postman’ — Biggest Movie Flops of All Time
This 1997 film took place in a post-apocalyptic 2013. But it only brought in $18 million on an $80 million investment. And director and star Kevin Costner, who had previously starred in the equally costly sci-fi dud ‘Waterworld,’ was held responsible for the flop.
Vanity Fair wrote: “Audiences were in no mood to watch a movie which begins with Costner reciting ‘MacBeth’ to his donkey before once more martyring himself for three hours.” Costner did a lot of on-screen martyring during the ’90s.
