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.
Posted: 6 months ago at Feb 28 2:23
Done, sorry for the mistake.
Posted: 6 months ago at Feb 28 4:13
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.

K-19, one of my favorite movies. To bad it was a loss leader...
