Poll: What Was the Biggest Movie Turkey of 2016?

Thanksgiving is almost upon us, and before our feasts, why not look back at some of the biggest turkeys in entertainment as the year closes?

Specifically, there were quite a few big film flops that hurt studios across Hollywood. From “Ben-Hur,” which was an embarrassing bomb in the heat of a competitive summer, to “The BFG,” which not even Steven Spielberg’s clout could save, the notable flops hit hard.

“Alice Through the Looking Glass,” “Ghostbusters,” and “Star Trek Beyond” were three other financial failures that warned of a growing remake and sequel fatigue. Which movie turkey was the biggest? Weigh in below. Did we leave out your choice? Let us know in the comments section.

UPDATE: This poll has been closed, with “Ben-Hur” taking the top spot.
