7. Play Doh
The Talent: Shia LaBeouf, Julia Stiles, director Joe Dante
The Pitch: Terror sweeps the town of Downingtown, Pennsylvania as the nearby military research base created a highly dangerous dough-like substance that breaks free of the lab and begins to overwhelm the area.
LaBeouf and Stiles are press types freshly arrived to cover the local beaver-tossing competition, who get caught up in the madness as the town attempts to evacuate in the face of molten doug extinction.
Can they locate the crazed scientist behind the substance in time? And will the town have to be flooded in order to save it?
The Cost: $93 million. Dante saves money by having the killer tide of play doh stop-motion animated.
The Box Office: $300 million worldwide.
