To be truthful, Christensen technically by no means stopped performing, even within the wake of “Jumper’s” outstanding flop. He seemed in lots of films during the years. It is merely that not one of the movies that adopted “Jumper” had been main blockbusters produced by way of Hollywood (by the use of IMDb). The actual query this is, how did “Jumper” reduce to rubble so badly that it led to Christensen to abandon (up till just lately) Hollywood solely?
Neatly, the quick resolution to that query is that it tousled very badly. Regardless that the movie had a ridiculously huge finances, a sizzling up-and-coming director in Doug Liman, a task performed by way of Samuel L. Jackson, and a pre-established target market from the supply subject material, the movie suffered from various on-set problems. Additionally, in accordance to SyFy Twine, the expectancy that the movie would obtain a sequel or two ruined its possibilities at having a digestible, centered narrative.
Mix this with the truth that by the point “Jumper” used to be launched in 2008, Christensen had already been branded unhealthy information by way of the “Superstar Wars” fanbase for 3 years. It used to be a recipe for crisis, and despite the fact that “Jumper” in reality made a killing on the field workplace, it changed into a essential failure. The movie handiest has a fifteen% on Rotten Tomatoes, and (as you almost certainly already know) didn’t obtain any of its deliberate sequels.
