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.

    Who is she going to blame for this movie? Isn’t she bald?

  2. Ballsy

    She does compare with Angelina Jolie. They are two actresses who keep me from watching any movie they are in. Right along with Greasy Reese Witherspoon. They all deserve the dumb bitch award.

  3. meh!

    so… she thinks she’s an actress?!?!

    I’m sure at Vivid Entertainment there’s a vacancy to fill up.

  4. See Alice

    This movie , like others will make a ton of dough once it hits DVD .

  5. Damn, you know its bad when a Tyler Perry movie is 2 spots higher than you in the top 5. Jeez…Maybe sheel get the point that no one gives a shit about some skanky, white trash bitch with tattoos.

    Maybe she can be a stunt double for Skank Von Dee…in her new movie/shockumentary on Hepatitis C called…”The Needle and Me.”

    tattoos= low class or cliche frat/sorority bitch ..either of which can fall off the face of the earth and give the gas station attendant jobs back.

  6. so far so good

    Yes Megan…your gonna have to go back to Micheal Bay and apologize to him by washing his car again…. this time everyone should get to watch.

  7. Dave

    Okay, yeah. Megan Fox has the acting ability of a bran muffin, but that’s not why this movie failed. This movie failed because it just looked dumb. It would have failed regardless of who the lead actress was. Don’t blame it on Megan just so you can make a post about Megan.

  8. Evil

    HA-HA

  9. anon

    She looks fucking stupid making that expression in picture #4.

  10. Something aint right

    I agree, Angelina Jolie > Megan Fox If I had to choose between the two. Sorry, older(younger) AJ, because now that she’s a mom….Idk….. BUT! Acting wise, that woman can act like no tomorrow!! she’s also a lot prettier than megan (when she was megans age. Megan Fox is a dumb bimbo, and for the people who saying megan fox didn’t fail because the movie was dumb…Uh, If the movie was dumb, then why did that many people see it in the first place. If you say it looked dumb by the previews then duh, don’t see it. It was because megan was in it that made it dumb, she can’t act for sh**! You all who saw it should have expected it, and maybe if you did expect it , it would be farther down the list (if the list is bigger!)
    whatever, you can say the movie was a fail but I say Megan Fox AND the movie was a fail. Not one or the other.

  11. Chuck Roast

    She needs to remove that stupid looking tattoo from her arm. What was she thinking?

  12. meganfoxtookadump

    i hope this is the end of her. although, truth be told, it was the industry itself and stupid consumers (you, not me) that made such a big deal of a girl who had simply not proven herself yet. maybe next time don;t get caught up in the media whirlwind people and appreciate people who actually have talent.

  13. Megan Fox is a dirty dirty woman. I heard her talking about her private parts on the radio last week and it was disgusting. I wouldn’t touch her with a ten foot pole!

  14. steveo

    This ‘star’ is just like the US education system.. no substance, yet continues to get paid

  15. Richport's Ghost

    What a dumb cunt.

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

    @62

    Are you sure? I think this is the fault of movie execs that mistook all the rage for Transformers and thought that surely it was because of the hot girl and not the cool robots(which it really was). Proof positive is this bomb we’re all speaking of. Nobody ever did give her any undue credit. The executives simply read the consumers incorrectly.

  17. Laci

    I’m a woman and I would fuck her. I would lick her, suck her, fuck her, etc. But I will not pay to watch her crappy movies, unless she starts making X-rated ones. There is nothing to this chick but sex appeal. No reason to waste money on her when I can look at pictures of her for free. I would also fuck Angelina Jolie, but she’s a decent actress, so I don’t mind spending a few bucks to watch her movies.

  18. isitin

    This actress really sucks. Its the tattoo thing, people really don’t like going to the movies to see white trash.

    What did that link prove? I said the reviews weren’t THAT bad, and even rottentomatoes shows the reviews to be pretty slit down the middle, between good and bad. Are you really basing a film’s appeal off of rotten tomatoes? How many films go on to be cult classics that were trashed by critics? I can name countless films where reviews were split, that doesn’t mean this film has bombed at all. I remember when i went to the screening of both Vanilla Sky and A.I., you had some people walk out and some people stand up and cheer, that is how these sort of obscure films work.

    The last article i read said 1 out of 3 critics liked it, but it’s early and whoever bases if they will watch or like a movie based on critics is not a real fan of films anyways. I can’t count how many times i have disliked a film that was up for an acedemy award, so i say who gives a crap about box office sales. My top film list consists of abstract films like 11:14 and The Dead Girl which your mainstream people barely even know exist.

    If the nasty web existed during some of the big box office draw actors and actresses of today’s EARLY YEARS, i am sure they would have been dismissed and torn to shreds too based on not to so popular film roles they took, so this crap being spewed really means nothing and i doubt she will be gone 10 years from now.

    #50, it is hard to take your harsh judgements of Megan seriously when you seem low class yourself. Oh and judging her acting based off of an action film like Transformers is laughable. If we had been able to predict on the web the future of some of today’s biggest stars we’d predict the same crash and burn fate. Fact is, not even Meryl Streep could have made that action role any better, so relax. Go to this link, http://jezebel.com/5361877/6-reasons-to-love-jennifers-body it’s a refreshing and unlike your post, articulate and adult perspective on her new film and Megan herself, make sure you read the user comments when you scroll down!!!! Hate to burst your bubble but many people like her.

  21. Can she please go away!

  22. jimbob

    Megan donate your implants to Olivia Wilde , because the only thing you are good for is porn. Olivia just needs two things to be the sexiest woman in Hollywood–implants. Megan only needs one thing–a brain–but they don’t do brain implants.

    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!

    *

    Megan’s hot, but she runs her mouth a little TOO much. So there some satisfaction in seeing a movie she’s headlining doing poorly at the box office. She’s also a little over exposed at the moment, IMO. Yeah, Jennifer’s Body will do VERY well when it hits DVD. Horror flicks tend to do well on DVD, even if they’re garbage. And, ENOUGH WITH DIABLO CODY, ALREADY!

    She looks like her pussy smells.

    *

    It does smell…. GREAT!

  24. 7734

    She is so fugly:

    Her hair looks like Dorthy in “The Wizard of OZ,” that is if Dorthy were going bald.

    She looks like she hasn’t had any food since the 5th grade, and her boobs are shrinking.

    Her dress is for a fifteen years old, and on her makes her look like Baby Jane.

    etc…

    @69

    You’re the one defending the movie by talking about the reviews. I merely presented some factual evidence. I didn’t judge the movie at all. YOU FAIL

  26. Pilatunes

    One big step toward obscurity. Keep going Megan, you can do it!

  27. Kimberly

    Tyler Perry’s movie came in 3rd?! How many black people with 2 hours to burn are out there?!

  28. val

    despite her shortcomings as a person/actress..whatever…what is so wrong with being pale? i think her skin is absolutely beautiful…and plus, when shes older, she wont look like a leathery old hag. Her skin is far more beautiful than other stars who frequent the cancer box or use horribly fake looking sunless tanner (paging lindsay lohan…) whats wrong with being normal people-colored?

    by the way #50, you should probably have read your post before calling other people low class white trash. plus, look at her and look at you…youre sitting on your ass bitching about her from your computer and she is rich, famous, successful, and beautiful. she must be doing something right. your dumb ass would switch places with her in a second.

  29. sasha

    77 – a shit ton because all they do is sit on their ass all day waiting for their next welfare check

  30. InTheBuz

    I specifically chose not to watch this movie because of her mouth and (reported) attitude.

  31. The Observer

    78 – How the HELL is that beautiful skin? You can’t even see her skin because of all the disgusting shit she piles on her face whenever she goes out in public. Her skin could be cracked and broken under the makeup mask.

    She’s rich and famous, but hardly successful and definitely not beautiful. Personality goes a long way, and her personality is in the negative.

  32. lola

    So nobody noticed Mr. Fish Lips in the background? THAT is creepy

  33. Sandy

    Bombing at the box office didn’t stop Jolie’s career so I doubt it will stop Megans.

  34. fuck u

    stop comparing her to angelina jolie assholes.

    she is no where as gorgeous and intelligent or talented as angelina.

  35. balls

    LOL @ 40 and 50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    who ever wrote those, will you both marry me?

  36. VOOO…….
    she is so pretty and sexy looking.She is so bold and beautiful.
    Simply megan fox bombs gonna rock at the box office.

  38. MeganHater

    I wouldn’t go see the nutbag in a movie if you paid me to! Everyone hates her, no wonder her movie bombed. Career suicide being in a movie with her.

  39. Owo

    Can this bitch just fall off the face of the world? We don’t need some chick who thinks she’s psyco and a bad actress who has ugri thumbs. I mean, she’s pretty and all, but bitch, you’re 15 minutes have been long gone. l:

  40. I dislike Megan Fox but I hate Diablo Cody even more and with that I think it’s Diablo’s overhyped “talent” and further misuse of her “cooler, hipper-than-thou” self-concious snark that she passes for dialogue that actually sank this picture…I can see Fox actually doing quite well in this role (she plays a slutty bitch, what a stretch!) and as such I actually don’t think it’s Fox’s fault the movie is doing badly.

    It’s an inconsistently written film without a real niche and a self-serving producer/screenwriter…that’s the problem.

    As a fan of Megan, I should point out that the Hottie and the Nottie only made $9,000 on it’s opening weekend… ;)

  43. Ballsy

    And do you notice we see less and less of Parasite Hilton as time goes on. She has to show her cooter or her funky nipples to get coverage.

  44. So Right

    The movie was actually a riot! I liked it.

  45. Riley

    Megan is fucking beautiful and this movie was fucking awesome. Stupid people these days.

  46. Tanzarian

    Girls aren’t going to see a Megan Fox movie with their boyfriend, cause they’ll expect a handjob but be thinking about Megan Fox. Guy aren’t going to go alone because they’ll want to jerk off. And old people aren’t down with vampires.

    This is a straight to video movie that would sell millions to boys 13+.

  47. amy

    She is beautiful and it is undeniable. She looks like Elizabeth Taylor and her surgeon did a great job.

    The girl is in no way too thin. It is so funny how soceity is warped into thinking that people who are actually a healthy weight are anorexic. Everybody looks better thin….everybody. Besides thin is healthy. Just because you have extra weight does not mean you cannot be poorly nourished. Just as a thin person can be very well nourished.

  48. Rosie

    I mean, all of these are really good comments. I enjoyed reading them but I feel there hasn’t been enough emphasis put upon the strange man in the background.

  49. yikes

    I am frightened by the “toe-thumbs”…

  50. Christina

    #97- Thin does not mean healthy. I have a friend who is naturally very thin (it’s hereditary-her mom is very thin as well) and she eats absolutely terrible food. Tons of fast food and no fruits or vegetables. Nothing but fatty, unhealthy foods in high quantities. She also doesn’t exercise at all (she’s one of those lucky people who doesn’t need to in order to maintain her weight) but that doesn’t make her healthy. There’s a damn good chance her cholesterol is too high or she has plaque building up in her arteries and shit. You have to eat right and exercise in order to be healthy. It’s more than your body shape. After all, would you call LeBron James unhealthy? He’s hardly thin.

    Anyway, it isn’t surprising that this movie didn’t make much money. It just looked stupid, and Megan Fox isn’t an actress. She’s a sex symbol. In garbage like Transformers that people go to for mindless action, it doesn’t matter, but in a movie like this you need a talented, charismatic star to bring people in, and Megan Fox just isn’t that person.

    I don’t like Megan Fox and have no plans on seeing this, but box office is not the only way to judge a movie. Plenty of great movies are never huge box office successes while plenty of shitty movies (such as Transformers and Twilight) have huge box office success while being absolute garbage. People aren’t necessarily intelligent when it comes to movies, unfortunately.
