  1. Ghostbusters

    Ghostbusters is a 1984 American supernatural comedy film directed and produced by Ivan Reitman and written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. It stars Bill Murray, Aykroyd, and Ramis as three eccentric parapsychologists in New York City who start a ghost-catching business. Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis co-star as a potential client and her neighbor. The Ghostbusters business booms after initial skepticism, but when an uptown high-rise apartment building becomes the focal point of spirit activity linked to the ancient god Gozer, it threatens to overwhelm the team and the entire world. Originally intended by Aykroyd as a project for himself and fellow Saturday Night Live alumnus John Belushi, the film had a very different story during initial drafts. Aykroyd's vision of "Ghostmashers" traveling through time, space and other dimensions to fight large ghosts was deemed financially impractical by Reitman. Based on the director's suggestions, Aykroyd and Ramis finalized the screenplay in May–June 1982.

    Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations, declared to Variety. But Ben-Hur isn't the only epic fail. Proving that Americans aren't impressed with much of Hollywood's summer slate, there have been multiple flops, including the Ghostbusters remake, Alice Through The Looking Glass, Star Trek Beyond, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Independence Day: Resurgence, The Legend of Tarzan, Warcraft, X Men: Apocalypse, and the Steven Spielberg directed fantasy, The BFG. Still, as The Wrap just reported, North American ticket sales are up 2.84 percent over 2015 receipts at this time. The films have cumulatively earned an astounding $4.14 billion domestic in figures calculated from 108 days after the first Friday in May until Aug. 22. This summer suffered from the problem of perception versus reality.
