Note: Films like Cowboys & Aliens and Hugo that profited in the box office are still considered bombs due to the amount of money invested into the film's marketing and advertising.

25. Cowboys & Aliens (2011)

IMDB

Budget : $163,000,000

Box office: $174,822,325

Estimated losses: $75,588,838

Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig as the main stars with Jon Favreau (Ironman 1 and 2) directing was still not enough to have this film break even.

24. How Do You Know (2010)

IMDB

Budget : $100,000,000

Box office: $48,668,907

Estimated losses: $75,665,547

James L. Brooks, director of As Good as It Gets and producer and writer on The Simpsons made his return to live action feature films but it was not enough, as the market for romantic comedies was starting to dry up.

23. Hugo (2011)

IMDB

Budget : $150–170,000,000

Box office: $185,770,160

Estimated losses: $57,114,920—77,114,920

Hugo was critically acclaimed, nominated for an Oscar for Best Film and was directed by legendary director Martin Scorsese, and still the film was one of the biggest bombs of 2011.
