Studio: New Line Cinema

Although globally the film was not considered a box office flop, American gross was low. New Line had already sold the international rights for the film and so missed out on the films worldwide profit (about $375 million), prompting Warner Bros to wade in and merge New Line into Warner Bros Pictures.

Studio: Square Pictures

Allocated Budget: $137,000,000
Domestic Gross: $32,131,830
Loss: 76.7%

Square Pictures' parent company, Squaresoft, had planned to merge with rival developer Enix, but the financial losses incurred by TSW plunged this partnership into jeopardy. Enix needed a further two years of convincing that this merger made good business sense.
The Flagship's rating:
Rate:
Watched Wanted Custom

A list of films that cost so much money to make that they successfully bankrupted their parent production company. Some companies recovered, others were forced to drastically alter their business model and some were terminally wounded by the financial ruin. Each of them will be regretting the major box office flop that failed to recoup the allocated budgets in cinemas world wide.
