The worst films of 2018, according to Metacritic


With one eye looking at the Oscars in celebration of 2018s best films, our attention is distracted by those efforts that flopped to insignificance.

Metacritic, the website that aggregates reviews of all films, has unveiled their worst films of 2018 list based on critical aggregate scores. With 15 films collated into the unfortunate pile, it is director Dinesh D’Souza who has been named the owner of the year’s worst film with his effort Death of a Nation. The film, which uses historical re-creatios, explores fascism and white supremacy with hidden truths.

In second was the now infamous London Fields starring Amber Heard which suffered one of the worst box office debuts of all time. In what was a dystopian mystery film with a star-studded cast of Heard, Billy Bob Thornton, Jim Sturgess, Johnny Depp, and Cara Delevingne drastically flopped at box office. Severely delayed, and embroiled in legal issues, the film limped to just $160,000 (£125,000) over the entire weekend after it had been premiered in 613 cinemas. The damning results of that reveal that each venue sold just $190 (£148) worth of tickets.
