Hey, guys, there are major spoilers ahead so if you missed out on a lot of the big summer blockbusters this year you may want to go ahead and skip this article.

Now that the spoiler warning is out of the way let’s go knee-deep into some summer blockbusters. This summer brought us a lot of surprises plot-wise and also served up some surprising box office bombs. This list is a summary of all the crazy happenings and goings-on from this summer’s blockbusters.

5. After Earth and Pacific Rim Bomb

After Earth had the star power and all the cool special effects that used to guarantee a big box office return. It starred Will Smith and his son, both of whom are proven box office gold. Yet it bombed at the box office. It just seemed to have the stink of rotten carrots that you forgot about in the vegetable-drawer in the fridge, and it turned out to be a box office failure. The reason it smelled like this is because it was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who made two or (arguably) three good movies before serving up some stinkbombs like The Last Airbender, The Happening, Lady in the Water and The Village. He can now add After Earth to that latter list.

Not all the bombs this season deserved it. Pacific Rim is a movie about giant robots fighting giant monsters. The premise alone practically sells itself, but it somehow bombed at the box office. It seems to be making up for it in China, though, where it made more money than The Avengers.
