Christian Slater's 'Playback': Film Is The Lowest-Grossing Of 2012

Christian Slater's horror movie
Christian Slater's horror movie "Playback" was the lowest-grossing film of 2012.

While 2012 has been a big year for movies, it also played host to some major box office bombs. Children's movie "Oogieloves In The BIG Balloon Adventure" famously crashed-and-burned, taking the title for the lowest-grossing wide release of all time, Tyler Perry's critically panned "Alex Cross" made $10 million less than its budget, and Gerard Butler's surfing flick "Chasing Mavericks" saw a total gross of just $5 million.

But the film that made the absolute least money this year? A little movie by the name of "Playback," starring Christian Slater. The horror film showed for one week at one movie theater, earning a total gross of $264. "Playback" played the week of March 16 - 22. Calculations from The Daily Mail show that approximately 33 people bought tickets to the movie to reach this total.

While Christian Slater provided the main star power to "Playback," the film also featured Johnny Pacar ("Make It or Break It") and Toby Hemingway ("The Black Swan"). The film, which had an estimated budget of $7.5 million, starred Slater as a crooked cop who is working to expose evil in his small town.

Slater's upcoming projects include a role in "The Power of Few" with Christopher Walken, and "Nymphomaniac" with Shia LaBeouf.
