As a potential cash cow, the Martin Scorsese-directed "Hugo" had a lot going for it: Critical acclaim, a star-studded cast, 3-D, and a Thanksgiving weekend opening – generally considered prime real estate for children's movies. But "Hugo" had the most expensive budget among the Academy Awards nominees, landing it at the bottom of the profitability list despite a respectable box office showing.
Fun fact: Actor Johnny Depp was a producer on this film.
