The Fifth Estate, which sees the actor play Julian Assange, had a budget of 28 million dollars (£17.1 million) and earned just six million (£3.6 million) at the global box office, reported Forbes.

That means the film - directed by Bill Condon - earned back only 21 per cent of its budget.

The Fifth Estate was followed by Sylvester Stallone's Bullet To The Head, which apparently had a return of just 36 per cent.

Corporate thriller Paranoia, starring Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman, was in third. The movie had a 35 million dollar budget and made 13.5 million (£8.2 million).

Jennifer Lopez' heist flick Parker and Mark Wahlberg's Broken City were next in the list.

The top 10 was rounded out by Battle Of The Year, Getaway, Peeples, R.I.P.D and The Big Wedding.
