John Carter of $200 Million Lost
Whoops! Guess you should have advertised the film, Disney! Or at least kept it as John Carter OF MARS
, dammit! Now we have a shameful $200 million lost and a big probability that there will be no sequel. Which is a shame, because John Carter (of Mars, dammit!) didn’t suck. It wasn’t perfect, but it wasn’t trainwreck bad. Don’t take my word for it, take my word for it!
Disney said “John Carter” has brought in about $184 million in ticket sales worldwide so far. But ticket sales are split roughly in half with theater owners. The movie’s production budget is estimated to be about $250 million with about $100 million more spent on marketing.
The only way to make the money back is to make a sequel and spend $400 million to make it! It’s just crazy enough to work…
We lost $200 million, but Transformers 3 made over a $ Billion??? That's it, we're invading Earth!
