While 2016 was a pretty big year at the box office, there were still some miserable failures. In particular, there are five films that performed so poorly, they tripped over their own feet right out of the gate.

In a couple of cases, landing a place on this list made for an ignominious end to already troubled histories. As for the others, well, sometimes the dice just don't land the way you hope they will. In all cases, the five films that were listed as the worst starters of the year (after opening in more than 1,000 theaters) are films you probably don't remember. Thanks to Exhibitor Relations' Twitter feed, you'll probably remember them for about another week!

Opening Weekend Gross: $2 million

The market for genetic experiment movies just isn't what it used to be. While Jurassic World took the world by storm last summer, Morgan couldn't even muster buzz, either positive or negative, at the beginning of September. The doldrums of summer usually provide a good window for untested films to bust out onto the scene and make a difference. Morgan somehow couldn't manage to do that, despite a notable cast, and a story that sounded like it was almost a carbon copy of Ex Machina.
