We had a lot of high hopes for movies in 2013, but not all of them lived up to expectations. Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins and Logan Lerman‘s biggest projects of the year were just a few that completely bombed at the box office, and we were beyond disappointed. What gives?

To prove to you that not everything could be the next Twilight, Harry Potter or The Hunger Games, here are 13 teen(-ish) flicks that failed in 2013. (NOTE: All of the projections are courtesy of Box Office Mojo, and do not include overall marketing budgets.)


Getaway

BUDGET: $18 million

EARNED: $10.5 million, domestically

Stick to music, Selena Gomez.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

Guess Channing Tatum's guns aren't enough for everyone.

    I forgot most of those were even movies… besides Percy Jackson: sea of monsters & white house down. Percy Jackson for two reasons: they are the best books ever!!! And Logan Lerman, of course!!!!! White house down? Because of… channing tatum!

    I saw most of these and thought they should of done much better than they did. I think that there’s too many movies out there that are too similar to each other. People want to see something new, so why would they see a movie that was similar to one that they already saw? But for serious fans like me, we’ll watch and love the movies anyway. Go Percy Jackson!

    As a huge fan of books, I would have loved to have seen all of these films do really well, as I think it hugely promotes reading. Of course, The Hunger Games had a HUGE amount of Marketing compared to a lot of these films; I, for one, have never head of ‘Battle of the Year.’ I saw Beautiful Creatures, The Host and Percy Jackson, and enjoyed them all, but maybe it just wasn’t the right time? Yep, make Percy Jackson, but maybe leave a little time after Twilight before trying to fill the space. The Hunger Games does so well because nobody has seen something like that before; a teen film has never dared to discuss such strong messages, and there’s never been such a prominent female-heroine for young girls to look up to. This could be a problem for Divergent; it’s a brilliant book, and I’m one of it’s biggest fans, but people will feel it’s ‘The Hunger Games all over again’. It takes time to replace something that is loved! I mean, Twilight was the first supernatural romance so, obviously it intrigued people!

    I think you forgot that Ender’s Game is not yet released in all those ‘overseas’ countries as you may call them. Release in The Netherlands is planned for January.
