John Carter opens poorly

Box Office Mojo reports Disney’s worst fears. Like Tron Legacy and Prince of Persia before it, Disney’s last cracks at live action, John Carter fell victim to poor marketing and a surprisingly unengaging story…

After months upon months of box office speculation, John Carter finally opened and as expected was a huge disappointment. The mega-budget sci-fi epic wasn’t even able to unseat The Lorax, which held first place for the second-straight weekend. The other openers, Silent House and A Thousand Words, also performed poorly on a weekend where the Top 12 earned an estimated $123.35 million (up just five percent from last year).
