Megan Fox bombs at the box office

September 20th, 2009 // 112 Comments

And it’s official: Megan Fox has the box office draw of a ham sandwich. Jennifer’s Body debuted this weekend in fifth place with an embarrassing gross of only $6.8 million, according to Box Office Mojo:

1. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – $30.1 million
2. The Informant! – $10.5 million
3. Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself – $10 million
4. Love Happens – $8.45 million
5. Jennifer’s Body – $6.8 million

To put things in perspective, it lost to the second weekend of a Tyler Perry movie even after a 57% drop in ticket sales. That’s pretty fucking bad. Unless, of course, your name is Michael Bay then it’s pretty fucking awesome and an excuse to write “I told you” on the tip of your gigantic CGI boner.

  2. Ballsy

    One or two more of these and we wont have to look at this wonky loud mouthed bitch anymore.

  3. Ballsy

    Since I’m fat, I may have gone to the theater to see a ham sandwich play her role in that crappy movie.

  4. haha

    She needs to visit a tanning salon asap. Especially with that dark hair.

    Otherwise, she looks beautiful as always. One of the hottest women in Hollywood, but I still don’t like her

  5. NxIxCxKxMxAxNx

    stick a fork in her

  6. WTF

    holy fish lips! what’s up with dude behind her???

  7. DANNY-I'M FAN OF LINDSAY LOHAN

    She worked very hard to get interest in the film. She fed the Fish every couple of days. These days, that seems like a prerequisite for getting more work. She’ll be back.

  8. blahblah

    Why do people even watch Tyler Perry movies and shows? I can’t believe she couldn’t even beat that.

  9. Dirk 09

    Shut up and look pretty!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The more she talks, the less attractive she is. And attractive is all she has working for her…

  10. NxIxCxKxMxAxNx

    she should make a horror movie about her hammer thumbs.

  11. Ing

    @10 … amen.

    @7 … AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

  12. R.I.P.Each

    Where are the boobs? Do I smell chicken cutlets? No I don’t. She must have left them at home today.

    Consistency is the key to persuasion.

  13. I CALL megan A WHORE IN THE BODY OF THIS MESSAGE

    LOL. hammer thumbs.

  14. Urbanspaceman

    The present time in Meganland is 14:30. Please adjust your time pieces accordingly.

  15. hoggyg

    She looks like she’s getting arrested in the last picture. And karma’s a bitch, bitch.

  16. jljskljs

    artificial and frightening in my opinion, dont get the attraction to her…

  18. necessary ROUGHness

    Does she have the super agents of a Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan, or whats that chick with the forehead of a tank’s name. erm, that legally blonde broad. I think not. She’s not America’s “sweetheart” how do you expect her to carry a movie…

    BTW: I feel compelled to defend Megan because I love an under dog…

  19. DrownLohan

    It didn’t do as bad as you think… It only had a $16M budget! Maybe $25M total with ads etc. SO it will make it’s money back and more, just not billions. And don’t forget DVD/blu-ray where it will make TONS

  20. jenni131

    Who didnt see this coming. She’s a terrible actress.

  21. M

    Megan Fox didn’t bomb.

    The movie did because the plot looked dumb.

  22. M

    Megan Fox didn’t bomb.

    The movie did because the plot looked dumb.

    If this was another actress in her spot, there wouldn’t be such a story up here.

  23. B@RT

    OH HA.

    Who the fuck cares. She really isn’t that great of an actor, and sounds a bit bitchy about who she works with. So who cares, everybody knew this movie would suck anyway

  24. Erica

    She looks kind of pale and gaunt here, in some sort of misguided attempt to class it up.

    You know what? I like the sleazy, greasy, tanned Megan. And I like that she has a little meat on her arms and legs, unlike here.

  25. Amy

    Well, what do you expect when you try to sell a movie only on sex appeal? The previews only sold sex appeal (and we all knew there would be no nudity). It has to have some other content/selling point or people will just watch porn.

  26. The Observer

    She’s too stupid to be attractive, and she coats her face with too much gunk to be beautiful.

    Letting everyone know that she wasn’t getting naked in this movie probably cut ticket sales in half.

  27. M

    #26-
    She had to become pale and very skinny for the role, she said it herself in several different interviews.

  28. Nero

    My predictions were most realistic.I’m a pretty nice guy.

  29. Rupert

    Thirty-first.

  30. Darth

    *Throws away (grandma’s empty parfum bottle) crystal globe*

  31. Sanford

    She looks trailerpark and can’t act worth a shit. Add that to a bad script and you get EPIC FAIL.

  32. Yaaaahhhhhhhhhh

    I bet she won’t talk shit to Michael Bay after this.

  33. Airmail56

    WOW! I’ve seen this thing advertised everywhere. Perhaps she can blame the bad press.

  34. Gando

    The good news is that people start to think that she can act.

  35. friendlyfires

    In ten years, it’ll be Megan Who and she’ll be very very very disturbing to look at, and unnerving to listen to and she’ll be doing web porn with animals in Transnistria.

  36. Rhialto

    We did expect more but to a 16 million production budget it isn’t that bad.

  37. Kittycat Kate

    YOU FREAKING FOOLS, BEFORE YOU LAUGH KEEP THIS IN MIND…

    These kind of films typically bomb at the box office, this wasn\’t going to be a mainstream hit to begin with.

    This is the type of film tons of people are curious to see, but don\’t actually go see while in the theater, mostly because of the bad mouthing and stigma associated with both Megan and this genre of film, so they don\’t admit it but will rent it when it goes to DVD.

    DID ANY OF YOU GOONS KNOW THAT ROGER EBERT GAVE THIS FILM 3 OUT OF 4 STARS?? From what i am reading, the reviews aren\’t that bad, it\’s just of course everybody is going to poke fun and hate, that is what Hollywood has become all about. Blah!

  38. I actually wanted to see this. I like Diablo Cody… but I just can’t give this bitch any more of my money until she starts showing her tits and shutting her mouth.

    It’s okay to be outspoken. It’s fine to be legally retarded. It’s just best if you’re not both.

  39. I CALL kanye A WHORE IN THE BODY OF THIS MESSAGE

    @39

    The reviews aren’t bad? Do you ever check this site out?

  40. Do FreeBird

    I was going to remind everyone that she’s just a young woman, that she’ll grow as an actress and person, that there could be a million reasons why the movie failed.

    Then I remember that she said she would never do a nude scene.

    FUck that no talent, stuck up bitch.

  41. kickback

    Well lol, it hasn’t even been released to the rest of the world yet. Just wait until it opens here in Europe. It’ll be a financial sucess.

    Besides, it’s more likely that it’ll do well when it comes on dvd and shit. Young men can’t masturbate at the cinema you know.

  42. Nameless

    @ 21 look up JUNO…a movie budget will not make a movie better or profitable. TALENT on the otherhand can make a cheap movie really good.

    This movie looked lame from the previews. Face the truth, remove Megan Fox out of the equation and this movie would have been premiered on Syfy.

  43. She looks like her pussy smells.

  44. Ballsy

    ROFLMFAO!@42 AND 45

  45. joe blow

    #7: He’s looking for that ham sandwich… and not finding it.

  46. norton

    Two “Transformer” movies and now she can handle a leading role?

    Let’s take a pragmatic look at her acting abilities. Wait, she has none.

    Ok. NEXT?!!

  47. anon

    @ 39: Roger Ebert gave this movie 3 stars because he gets creepy obsessions with attractive young women. Remember when he said Jennifer Lopez was an amazing actress? Yeah…

  48. Fake Mothatrucka

    This bitch is as fake as they come, and sad thing is no one sees it yet. She can’t act, she can’t talk (intelligently) She acts like shes some sex queen yet she is too chicken shit to get naked in a movie that had it’s views based on the previews, (and don’t call it “classy” that she didn’t get naked. This bitch is far from classy) Reason she supposedly got “pale” for this role is because she was never tan to begin with. Her tan was a fake ass tan, why do you think she got pale so fast? Also, did I mention she can’t act for balls? Guys only think she’s sexy because that’s all she has going for her is her looks. Girls only hate her because they are not jealous, they’re just tired of hearing about this bitch whine and complain! Guys will eventually realize once they take their eyes off her tits and their ears off her ass, She’s nothing but a ditzy, prude, and retarded excuse for an actress. Angelina Jolie? Bitch Please, you aren’t even worthy to stand on a pedestal with you being the runner up against Angelina Jolie’s shit. Take a hike megs, not many people like you, and soon when you realize that, get on drugs and overdrink yourself turning yourself into a Lindsay Lohan, you’ll be the dirt under the rug honey, Sorry to be so blunt, but I’m sure many people male and female will agree. Obviously why your movie failed.
