This summer’s predicted blockbusters have seen extremely and unexpectedly poor performances. “Pacific Rim” and “R.I.P.D,” while both primed for international success, did nothing to create buzz among audiences or garner interest among critics. “The Lone Ranger” is responsible for a $190 million loss at Disney. With the spectacular flops that have filled our screens this […]
