Why Did Aeon Flux Fail At The Box Office? The Controversy Behind!

Though the movie had a brilliant story and an awesome star cast with stunning cinematography experience, it could not earn huge profit at the box office. The budget of the movie was $62 million dollars, but it only managed to earn only $52 million dollars. The major reasons for its failure were-

  1. There were tensions between the director and the production team. Director Kusama wanted to shoot in Brasilia, but the budget did not allow him to do so. Thus, he was highly frustrated with the choice of locations.
  2. The constant interference of the producers led to many heavy changes in the movie just before its release date. Thus, it killed the essence of the actual series and failed to create magic on the big screen. 
  3. During 2005, various sci-fi movies were already released. Thus, the audience did not find anything new in Aeon Flux. So, it did only did average business.
  4. Makers have claimed that the movie was ahead of its time. People were not able to connect themselves with the storyline and thus the movie landed a poor performance. However, if this movie was released now, things would have been different.

The movie is now getting attention for being such a futuristic concept and brilliant performances. The makers are also planning to recreate the movie again in the near future.
