    What are some actors/actresses who have had a terrible year when it comes to their films that were out at that time? Here are my examples:

    Macaulay Culkin (1994): Getting Even with Dad, The Pagemaster and Richie Rich
    Eddie Murphy (2002): Showtime, The Adventures of Pluto Nash and I Spy
    Cuba Gooding, Jr. (2003): Boat Trip, The Fighting Temptations and Radio
    Matt Damon (2017): The Great Wall, Suburbicon and Downsizing
    Scarlett Johansson (2017): Ghost in the Shell and Rough Night

    2004 was a shitty year for Jude Law. Somebody tried to propose him for the Best Year thread and I immediately laughed when I read that. That was the year of his extreme overexposure and it was flop after flop.

    Alfie
    Sky Captain
    I Heart Huckabees
    Closer
    The Aviator
    Lemony Snicket’s

    6 high profile films, 3 flops, one voice over work in a film that underperformed, one cameo so he can’t get credit for it, and for Closer he didn’t really get anything.

    All of this ended up making Chris Rock joke about him at the Oscars. Sean Penn defended him because they were working together on….one of the biggest flops of all time: All the King’s Men. Which is one of three other flops he followed 2004 with.

    I don’t think he ever recovered. He’s had the Sherlock Holmes films, but those didn’t happen until 5 years latsr. He’s still of course a very important actor, but his reputation really got ruined by all of this.

    Ben Affleck in 2003. Daredevil, Paycheck, and Worst Picture winning Gigli. As if those weren’t enough he also starred in Jersey Girl the very next year.

    Definitely a finalist for the crown in this thread. He was a huge star, had everything going for him and the 2003 happened. It took him about 6 years to recover.

    Tom Cruise definitely had a shitty 2005…or 2006. I can’t remember when the Katie Holmes thing happened and it was downhill from there. Even if War of the Worlds was hit.

    MI3 sort of failed, he ended up making Lions for Lambs, Valkyrie, a divided reception for Tropic Thunder, Knight and Day sort of flopped and the list goes on. And he reasoning behind all of that was always “well…the couch thing…”

    He’s still TOM CRUISE, and the Mission Impossible films helped him lot as they were great, he had Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow too. He’s doing ok. But that year hurt him a lot and he’s still on shaky ground. He can easily flop…see The Mummy.

    Zac Efron also had Neighbors 2 in 2016 which was a big disappointment. You can’t call it a flop, but it made less than half than the original. And he was coming off We Are Your Friends, another big flop after a great 2014.

    That was 2016 and he returned in 2017 with Baywatch (huge flop) and The Greatest Showman which looked like a certified flop for a moment until it became a big hit. But I don’t think anybody can deny that his storyline is the worst part of a pretty standard to mediocre film. But at least it was a hit.

    I’m pretty sure playing Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts series is a recovery.
