Hollywood may be looking at a record-breaking year at the U.S. box office but not without several rotten eggs. In addition to big-budget failures like Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” (pictured above), several low-to-mid-level films also disappointed in ticket sales, including projects from Channing Tatum, Harrison Ford and Selena Gomez.

Below is a list of this year’s biggest box office underachievers (in no particular order):

The Lone Ranger
When it comes to financial disasters, Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” will likely go down as the biggest flop of the year after losing nearly $200 million at the box office. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, behind the hit “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise (also starring Johnny Depp), lost his Disney deal in the process.
Estimated Budget: $250 million
Box Office: $260 million

Ender’s Game
Lionsgate had hoped the popular sci-fi novels would spur another teenage franchise like “The Hunger Games,” but the Asa Butterfield-starrer failed to catch fire at the box office, earning less than $90 million worldwide.
Estimated Budget: $115 million
Box Office: $87.9 million

The Fifth Estate
DreamWorks’ Wikileaks movie “The Fifth Estate” pulled in an anemic $1.7 million from 1,769 theaters on its opening weekend, making it the worst debut for a film opening in at least 1,500 theaters this year.
Estimated Budget: $28 million
Box Office: $8.5 million

Jack the Giant Slayer
New Line and Legendary Pictures’ costly take on the classic “Jack and the Giant Beanstalk” fable earned $200 million worldwide for Warner Bros. but factor in the film’s budget ($195 million) plus marketing fees, and the parties involved emerged with a $90 million loss.
Estimated Budget: $195 million
Box Office: $197.5 million

R.I.P.D.
Universal smartly scaled back the marketing spend on the comic adaptation when tracking was lousy, but the $130 million Ryan Reynolds-Jeff Bridges actioner still couldn’t crack $80 million.
Estimated Budget: $130 million
Box Office: $78.3 million

Oldboy
Spike Lee’s remake of the cult Korean thriller was a giant turkey at the Thanksgiving box office and one of the worst-performing films of the director’s career.
Estimated Budget: $30 million
Box Office: $4 million

After Earth
M. Night Shyamalan’s pricey sci-fi film may have recouped its budget internationally (not counting the marketing costs) but the high cost contributed to several Sony executives losing their jobs.
Estimated Budget: $110 million
Box Office: $243.8 million

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Steve Carell failed to produce any magic at the box office as this WB comedy all but vanished this past year, despite an aggressive marketing campaign.
Estimated Budget: $30 million
Box Office: $22.5 million

Bullet to the Head
Sylvester Stallone’s action pic flew under the radar for one of the worst financial debaucles of the year.
Estimated Budget: $55 million
Box Office: $9.4 million

Getaway
Selena Gomez may be a teen queen and tabloid favorite, but her youthful fans didn’t show up for the Ethan Hawke actioner, which only drew $10 million at the U.S. box office.
Estimated Budget: $18 million
Box Office: $10.5 million

Battle of the Year
Chris Brown didn’t exactly have a year to remember. Before entering rehab for anger management, the R&B star’s dance movie failed to make the right moves in theaters.
Estimated Budget: $20 million
Box Office: $13.7 million

Machete Kills
Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete” sequel landed with a thud.
Estimated Budget: $33 million
Box Office: $15 million

Tyler Perry Presents Peeples
With the popular brands of Kerry Washington and Tyler Perry, it’s surprising Lionsgate couldn’t generate more than $9 million globally.
Estimated Budget: $15 million
Box Office: $9.3 million

White House Down
Even with box office golden boy Channing Tatum in a starring role, Sony’s action pic didn’t have enough muscle to overcome similarities to FilmDistrict’s “Olympus Has Fallen.” The film was listed as a crucial weakness in Sony’s summer earnings.
Estimated Budget: $150 million
Box Office: $205 million

Paranoia
The Liam Hemsworth-Harrison Ford thriller debuted at #13 at the U.S. box office with a meager $3.5 million this past summer.
Estimated Budget: $35 million
Box Office: $13.7 million

Beautiful Creatures
Even with a star-studded supporting cast (Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons) and a built-in fanbase from the best-selling book series, WB’s young adult fantasy pic couldn’t mine box office gold.
Estimated Budget: $65 million
Box Office: $60 million

47 Ronin
Keanu Reeves’ samurai tentpole opened Christmas day and Universal has already taken an unspecified writedown for the $175 million film. It could join “The Lone Ranger” as one of the biggest flops of 2013.
Estimated Budget: $175 million
Box Office: ?
