Brief
A film released in theaters is considered a bomb when it fails to break even at the box office by a large amount, thus losing money for the studio and/or production company that invested in it.

Furthermore
A film is still considered a bomb if it gets the exact amount of the production budget or a little bit more than that, because film studios take half of the box office receipts, and theaters takes the other half; thus, a film would normally need to make twice its production budget worldwide to break even.

Equation

where
TWB : Total Worldwide Gross.
PB : Production Budget.

Can you replace the original Lolita with the 1990s remake because that makes more sense.

Done, sorry for the mistake.

Proof that even truly great movies can be Bombs.
K-19, The 13th Warrior, Treasure Planet and, of course, Hugo... I never realized that any of them lost money.
