There are movie bombs and then there are career killers. 

These 11 movies were not only box office no-shows, but they destroyed the careers of some pretty big names -- like John Travolta and Halle Berry.

Click through and check out our 11 career-killing movies and see whose careers took a fatal hit.

1. Striptease

Striptease got Demi Moore the biggest paycheck any actress ever received prior. Hope that $12 million is saved Demi, 'cause your career was never the same.

2. Superman Returns

Superman Returns
In the category of "it's not fair," Superman Returns essentially killed the career of Brandon Routh. It's a shame, because the perceived failure of this flick was not his fault. In fact, he was a super Superman.

3. Batman and Robin

Batman and Robin
Chris O'Donnell played the titular character Robin and after this fiasco destroyed the Batman franchise (for a moment), it ensured that O'Donnell would never be a movie star again. Glad to see he recovered nicely on TV.

4. Cutthroat Island

Cutthroat Island
Cutthroat Island was a triple career killer. Geena Davis, Matthew Modine and director Renny Harlin never recovered.

5. The Phantom Menace

The Phantom Menace
Getting cast (even as a kid) as Anakin Skywalker should have been HUGE! But little Jake Lloyd never really worked again after die-hard Star Wars fans revolted.

6. Boat Trip

Boat Trip
How does Cuba Gooding, Jr. follow up his Oscar win for Jerry Maguire? By killing his career with the inane comedy Boat Trip.
