Margot Robbie’s Famous Co-Stars Couldn’t Stop Box Office Flops


Key Takeaways:
– Renowned actor Margot Robbie experienced colossal commercial flops despite partnering with A-list stars.
– Amsterdam, Babylon, and The Suicide Squad were the most significant box office failures in Robbie’s career.
– Despite the projects boasting of Hollywood heavyweights, celebrities couldn’t safeguard these films from box-office blunders.
– All three movies are available on online streaming platforms for viewership.

The Unsuccessful Run of ‘Amsterdam’

Star power is often seen as a triggering factor for Hollywood box office success, but Robbie’s 2022 release, Amsterdam, contradicted this perception. A line-up of stars including Christian Bale, Rami Malek, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Taylor Swift, and Robert De Niro couldn’t shield the film from disappointing box office numbers.

David O. Russell, who directed the film and has received five Academy Award nominations, was also unable to save the movie from financial fallout. Despite its intense star power, Amsterdam ended up with a poor 33% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, amassing only $29M at the box office as per The Numbers. With a staggering loss of $97M, it was a noteworthy commercial flop in Robbie’s repertoire of films. Amsterdam is currently available for viewing on Prime Video.

‘Babylon’ Adds to the List of Flops

For Margot Robbie, 2022 seemed to be riddled with box office disappointments, the second one being Babylon. Alongside Robbie, Babylon showcased a top-tier ensemble, comprising names like Brad Pitt, Tobey Maguire, and Emma Stone. Regrettably, these stars were unable to attract hefty numbers to the theaters.

Babylon, directed by Oscar-winning Damien Chazelle of La La Land fame, also experienced a lackluster box office response. Despite featuring a host of industry A-listers, the film garnered a modest 57% RT rating and managed only a baffling $64M in box office collections against a $110M production budget. Babylon, sadly, emerged as a box office catastrophe, failing to captivate audiences. Babylon is for streaming on Prime Video.

DC’s Disaster: ‘The Suicide Squad’

In the Hollywood realm, the year prior to 2022, brought Robbie into a commercially unsuccessful project – The Suicide Squad by DC. Despite the film featuring Robbie’s popular character Harley Quinn and co-starring John Cena, Idris Elba, Pete Davidson, and Daniela Melchior, it failed to impress at the box office.

With a whooping expenditure of $185M, The Suicide Squad bagged only $167M. Even the acclaimed director James Gunn was unable to navigate the film around the rocky shores of a box-office flop. The unsuccessful venture not only marked a severe dent in Robbie’s career trajectory but also called for scrutiny of the DC Universe. The Suicide Squad is available to watch on Max.

In Conclusion

It’s clear that despite an impressive record and working with a host of talented co-stars, Margot Robbie found herself amidst a string of box office failures. These underperforming projects offer a potent reminder that not all glittering A-list ensembles guarantee box-office success. Robbie’s movies, though high on the star value, were unable to translate the names into numbers, resulting in significant losses. As Robbie navigates the chapters forward in her Hollywood story, viewers eagerly await the comeback of the actress to her winning ways.
