After the fiasco that was Waterworld, actor/director Kevin Costner decided to resurrect his floundering career with…another post-apocalyptic epic starring himself. The Postman (2007) tells the tale of an actor struggling to survive in what's left of America after a devastating nuclear war. Upon discovering a stash of undelivered mail in an abandoned post office, he sets out on a mission to provide other survivors with old letters from their loved ones, bringing new hope for civilization itself.
Critics didn't buy the story, and movie-goers didn't buy tickets. Instead of salvaging the wreckage from Waterworld's wake, The Postman only delivered another colossal failure for Costner, grossing far less than it's much-mocked predecessor.1 of 13
