Van Helsing, anyone? He even made a joke about that movie in his solo show.

And Australia was a bomb. Although I liked that movie, and it provided one the best moments in that same solo show.

He was also in that Movie 43 for some reason. Even I didn't see that one.

The Fountain tanked as well, because people are stupid.

He's a huge star on Broadway. He could get on stage and sing the phone book for two hours and it would sell out for six months in advance.

Les Miserables is really the first movie he's done outside of the X-Men movies that's been a huge box office success.

Even as poorly received as Origins was (and being readily available online a month before it opened), it still did $373 worldwide. It's a bad movie, but it didn't flop at the box office.
