These five movies have elements working against them.

This year is already on track to be huge at the movies, but not every picture can be a winner. Big films such as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Finding Dory, and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will probably score massive totals, but the year will also play host to films that slip through the cracks and fail to justify their production and marketing expenses. And with the cost of bringing a movie to theaters higher than ever before, flops can be a big risk for the companies behind them.

Click through the following presentation to get the scoop on five movies that are in danger of flopping in 2016.
