2014 wasn't a great year for movies in general.

Only one movie managed to make $1 billion, "Transformers: Age of Extinction."

A lot of movies underperformed at theaters, resulting in what will be the lowest box office in nine years according to the Hollywood Reporter

We've rounded up the biggest flops of the year from a "Hercules" film to Johnny Depp's latest. 

13. "Veronica Mars" (Warner Bros.)

Budget: $6 million
Worldwide gross: $3.5 million
Opening weekend: $1.9 million

This was really a movie made for the fans, by the fans. Reviews for the Kickstarter-funded movie were overall great; however, many noted that unless you were a fan of the series, you may be a bit confused watching the film. That may have led to more fans of the series flocking to theaters. While there are no numbers available for how the movie performed on video on demand (VOD), VOD numbers for the film may not mean much since Warner Bros. issued refunds after difficulties downloading the film via video service Flixster.

Since the movie was funded by Kickstarter, this was more of an exercise in experimentation for the studio.

12. "Tyler Perry's The Single Mom's Club" (Lionsgate)

Budget: n/a
Worldwide gross: $16.3 million
Opening weekend: $8.1 million

Tyler Perry's films are usually a guaranteed box-office hit; however, when his latest film debuted in March it became the director's worst-performing movie to dateAs a result, Lionsgate shares fell 5%. We don't know the actual budget, but Perry's films usually cost around $20 million to make.

11. "Vampire Academy" (The Weinstein Company)

Estimated budget: $30 million+
Worldwide gross: $15.4 million
Opening weekend: $3.9 million 

Vampires just aren't popular anymore in theaters and The Weinstein Company's attempt at jumping on the genre bandwagon proved that. Not even "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland could save this adaptation of the popular book series.
