Biggest Movie Flops Of 2011

Many Hollywood studios will be all too happy to forget 2011, which witnessed a troubling dip in moviegoing for much of the year at the domestic box office. There were several high-profile flops that lost tens of millions, including "Mars Needs Moms" and "Cowboys & Aliens."

Studios split grosses with theater owners, so even if a movie makes as much as its production budget, its still in trouble, not to mention marketing costs. And, after several record-breaking years, the domestic box revenues are running 4 percent behind 2010 levels. 

Here's a glance at the movies largely rejected by audiences.

Mars Needs Moms - Studio: Disney - Release Date: March 11, 2011 - Budget: $150 million - Worldwide Gross: $39 million

Sucker Punch - Studio: Warner Bros. - Stars: Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens - Release Date: March 25, 2011 - Budget: $82 million - Worldwide gross: $89.8 million
