Has anyone been to Tokyo? I've been there a few times. Very expensive but a city I enjoyed visiting very much.

I've never been there, but it looks so interesting with "East meeting West".

THE RAMEN GIRL

SHALL WE DANCE? (1996) Although the title comes from the Rodgers and Hammerstein song of the same name from "The King and I", the film follows a family man who feels that his life has lost direction and he subsequently falls into depression. He looks into a dance studio window and becomes intrigued with the woman who at that moment looks out the window. He decides to take Western ballroom dance lessons. (A prior voice-over at the beginning of the film explains that Western ballroom dancing is treated with suspicion in Japan.)

A huge hit followed by a flop
Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 7.35.41 AM.jpg

Gloria Swanson made the lackluster 3 FOR BEDROOM C after SUNSET BOULEVARD.

Bette Davis & Gary Merrill made ANOTHER MAN’S POISON after ALL ABOUT EVE.

Bruce Willis followed up DIE HARD and LOOK WHO’S TALKING with BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES and HUDSON HAWK.

Warren Beatty followed the hit Bonnie and Clyde with bomb The Only Game in Town

Huge hit Saturday Night Fever was followed by Travolta flop Moment by Moment

After he won fame as Lawrence of Arabia, Omar Sharif was in one of the biggest bombs ever, 1964's The Fall of The Roman Empire

Bette Davis followed her hit What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? with barely seen The Empty Canvas

A year after her bit hit Victor Victoria, Julie Andrews was in the $ loser, The Man Who Loved Women

Ghost was a huge hit, but Demi Moore's next film, Nothing But Trouble, was nothing but a flop

The next feature film Dustin Hoffman starred in after the hit Tootsie....

 

was that legendary flop, Ishtar  Image result for ishtar film

Greta Garbo earned her third Best Actress Academy Award nomination for Ninotchka which was followed by Two-Faced Woman which failed at the box office. The film is famous however as being the last film Greta Garbo ever made.

Steven Spielberg's CLOSE ENCOUNTERS was followed by... 1941, meh

 

THe entire cast of STAR WARS followed it with THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL :blink:, but Mark Hamill was in CORVETTE SUMMER, though I don't know the hugeness of the financial loss

 

I hope it's ok to use a Broadway example -- Irving Berlin's huge hit ANNIE GET YOUR GUN was followed by a huuuuuge flop MISS LIBERTY, the only remnant of which is the Statue of Liberty song "Give Me Your Tired Your Poor"
