Jennifer Connelly’s Biggest Movie Flops

2) Waking the Dead (2000) – $270,745
Billy Crudup co-starred with Jennifer Connelly in Waking the Dead which is a drama about a car bomb. The movie was co-produced by Jodie Foster and totally bombed at the box office.

4) Creation (2010) – $896,000
Paul Bettany stars as Charles Darwin in Creation and Jennifer Connelly plays his wife. I’m sure the idea of Charles Darwin sounded great in the pitch for this movie but moviegoers wanted no part of this movie which did not even make $1 million at the box office worldwide.
5) The Hot Spot (1990) – $1.3 million
The Hot Spot bombed at the box office but is a bit of a hot movie today because both Jennifer Connelly and Virginia Madsen appear nude in the movie quite a bit. Dennis Hopper directed and Don Johnson co-starred.
6) Reservation Road (2007) – $1.8 million
Reservation Road is one of those movies that has a great cast as Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Ruffalo and Mira Sorvino co-star along with Jennifer Connelly but the story line just doesn’t work and the film flopped at the box office
