John Carter Cost Disney $200 Million After Bombing At The Box Office!

John Carter woops

Yikes! That's quite a hit to take.

Whether it was the terrible trailers or terrible reviews from critics, nobody went to go see Disney's big budget box office bomb John Carter. As a result, Disney expects to lose $200 and explained in a statement:

"We expect the film to generate an operating loss of approximately $200 million during our second fiscal quarter ending March 31. As a result, our current expectation is that the Studio segment will have an operating loss of between $80 and $120 million for the second quarter."

This was supposed to be a sure-fire hit too! The studio already had the same creative team working on the script for the sequel, John Carter: The Gods of Mars. Doesn't look like that's going to be happening because if people don't care about poor John Carter, they aren't going to care about those Gods either.

Although a shirtless Taylor Kitsch was a huge draw for us, we skipped this one. Did U see John Carter? Is it worth checking out or should the audiences continue to avoid this flick?

    Don't expect Taylor Kitsch in another leading role soon.

    i did go see this movie… albeit dragged by my children… i never even knew the movie existed until we went to the theatre looking for something to see… and we were too early to get into anything else… i found the movie to be less than 3 d quality… although we were told it was a 3 d movie the effects were minimal… some parts were funny ish… it was to all over the board… nothing was solidified before he was hurled somehow into space… all in all… sporadic… pr was horrible… disney can and should blame themselves for this one… it seemed… thrown together… worth watching but … nothing epic happening…

    I saw maybe two commercials on TV for it. So they couldn't have tried that hard.

    I wouldn't go see a sequel, but the movie itself wasn't as bad as people are saying it is. Kind of funny, but their wasn't nearly enough action as then built it up to have.

    I actually liked it .

    A 51% on rotten tomatoes is hardly 'terrible reviews'. That means more critics liked it than didn't, which is a hard feat for a fantasy epic.

    As I have no interest in the film, you can consider me unbiased, but I'm getting tired of Perez spouting out 'facts' about television and films these days that are simply untrue. As a journalist with a vast population of readers, it is your duty to present factual information.

    I thought the movie was good fun. It was not a bad movie.

    I wonder why it bombed? I didn't have any idea what it was about before I went to see it. I thought it was a GREAT film, but they really shit the bed at advertising. I would definitely go see a sequel.
