By Jason Guerrasio From Business Insider

The box office in 2016 has been more of a shrug than a full-on crisis.

While there have been bright spots, Hollywood has had some big bets that have not payed off at all this year, especially over the summer, when audiences got tired of all the underwhelming sequels.

And then there are the titles whose performances at the box office have been epically bad.

From “Zoolander 2” to “Ben-Hur,” these are the 10 movies that did the worst this year, so far.

Note: These releases are limited to only those from the six major studios and those that have played in over 2,000 screens. Grosses below are all domestic earnings from Box Office Mojo.
