Thanks to the huge box-office grosses that movies are having so far this year — including record-breaking takes for “Furious 7" and “Jurassic World” — we may be headed for one of the highest-earning movie years of all time. 

But as we hit the halfway point of 2015, we have to address the titles that did not do well.

From “Mortdecai” to “Aloha,” here are 11 of the biggest bombs so far this year.

11. "Tomorrowland" (Disney)

Estimated Budget: $190 million
Worldwide Gross: $202.9 million
Opening Weekend: $33 million

Though this adaptation of the futuristic section of the Disney amusement park did hit No. 1 at the box office its opening weekend, the film's make-the-world-a-better-place vibe and long-winded storyline didn't motivate audiences — especially in the US. Though the George Clooney-starrer made $111.9 worldwide, it took in just $91 million domestically.

10. "Chappie" (Sony)

Estimated Budget: $49 million
Worldwide Gross: $102 million
Opening Weekend: $13.3 million

Many were excited for the latest movie from director Neil Blomkamp, as he was returning to his South African roots, where he found major success with his debut feature film, "District 9." But those hopes were dashed when the reviews came out and ripped into the movie, which follows a robot that has signs of artificial intelligence. (The film has a 31% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.)

9. "Jupiter Ascending" (Warner Bros.)

Estimated Budget: $176 million
Worldwide Gross: $181.8 million
Opening Weekend: $18.3 million

With production delays pushing the movie from a summer 2014 release date to an opening in January, "Jupiter Ascending" was behind the eight ball very early on. And things didn't get any better for the latest sci-fi thriller from the makers of "The Matrix," Andy and Lana Wachowski, when the film had a surprise screening at the Sundance Film Festival with very few positives coming out of it. General US audiences would end up feeling the same way. However, the film found more takers overseas.
