The year 2015 saw a number of movies making a mark with their story, direction or theme. While some were based on entirely new concepts, others were adaptations of already famous franchises and icons.

However, not all of them were received well by the viewers and critics, and even though the trailers of these movies were really grasping, the films themselves failed miserably.

As the year is about to end, here are five movies that were being awaited with anticipation but turned into huge disappointments when released.


Unarguably the most hyped movie of 2015 summer came and went like wind. No one actually noticed the film. Despite having big names like George Clooney and Britt Robertson attached to it, the movie failed to charm the audience.


Helmed by "District 9" director Beill Blomkamp, "Chappie" was perhaps the most awaited movie by fans of science fiction, but didn't turn out to be all that great. Besides the story and lack of any in-depth element, one of the major disappointments of the movie was lame acting by "Wolverine" star Hugh Jackman, which left the fans really sad.

Terminator Genisys

"Terminator Genisys" was nowhere near to Arnold's original Terminator movies and Rotten Tomatoes solidified this fact by giving it a shocking 26% in reviews. Though the "Governator" returned to the franchise with it, "Terminator Genisys" is considered one of the worst movies of the franchise till date.


Another disappointment by Hugh Jackman. Ever since Robin Williams' portrayal of Peter Pan, fans had been waiting for another magical adventure in Pan's world, and when news of "Pan" broke, they were excited. However, the movie had neither the magic nor charm of Robin Williams: He remains the best-known Pan ever.

Fantastic Four

Probably the biggest disaster of 2015, "Fantastic Four" broke all records of disappointment. In a phase when superhero movies are leading the industry, "Fantastic Four" came out pretty confidently to rule to box office. However, it was such an embarrassment that even the director of the movie tweeted that he didn't like the story at all.
