After receiving terrible reviews, it wasn't a big surprise that "The Legend of Hercules" was a box-office bomb opening weekend.

The Lionsgate / Summit Entertainment film brought in $8.6 million while costing an estimated $70 million.

Mark Wahlberg's "Lone Survivor," "The Wolf of Wall Street," and Disney's animated flick "Frozen" all easily beat out the demigod at theaters this weekend.

'Hercules" starred Kellan Lutz  who was featured in the "Twilight" franchise. One problem was that Lutz was completely unrecognizable from his "Twilight" counterpart.

Critics said the film was poorly written with weak dialogue and commented on the noticeable CGI effects.

Lutz' acting didn't help either.

This is the first of two "Hercules" movies out this year, with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson starring in the latter come July.
