2015 has been a big year for Hollywood. So far, four movies have topped the billion-dollar mark worldwide—Jurassic World, Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Minions—which places each of them in the top ten of all time globally. And The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 2 is just getting rolling, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still to come, so things could potentially get even bigger, box office wise.

That said, not every movie of the past year was a big financial success. In fact, there were some straight up box office dogs to be found. There’s still obviously a chunk of 2015 left, but Forbes put together their list of the biggest flops and box office turkeys of the year. Not necessarily the movies that made the least money, this list focuses on movies that opened wide, in at least 2000 theaters, and that produced the smallest return on their initial investments.

Jem
5. Jem And The Holograms
While movies based on popular 1980s cartoons have proven to be popular with the likes of the Transformers and G.I. Joe, John M. Chu’s attempt to reboot the cult outlier Jem and the Holograms did not find the same level of success. Not only was it brutally savaged by critics, it ignored much of what made the original series so damn much fun. Instead of the saga of a teenage rock star with a secret identity aided by a holographic computer and the crazy adventures she has, audiences got a story about a mopey teen who becomes famous after playing sad songs on YouTube. Not awesome at all. And I use the term "audiences" loosely, as Jem only took n $2.3 million, against a $5 million budget, and was pulled from theaters not long after its release.
