16 Oscar Nominees Who Had Their Forgettable Films Unceremoniously Dumped On Oscar Weekend

By Dustin Rowles | Box Office Round-Ups | February 25, 2013 |

The other debut this was Snitch featuring The Rock, which opened at number two with a lackluster $13 million. It also featured Oscar winner Susan Sarandon, which represents the kind of irony I love: Oscar winners having their films dumped into theaters on Oscar weekend.

Here are 16 other examples of that.

Vantage Point (Forest Whitaker) -- $22 million


Brooklyn's Finest (Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke) -- $13.5 million

Man of the House (Tommy Lee Jones) -- $8.9 million

View from the Top (Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo) -- $7.9 million
