Walt Disney has announced today it estimates to trash approx. $200 million on the movie John Carter. This would make the sci fi Carter movie probably the largest loss making movie of all times.
The production costs exceeded $100 million, whereas the movie had revenues to date of $198 million, which Disney shares 50-50 with the cinema operators. John Carter received bad reviews.
It looks to me that the movies are getting bigger and bigger…risks for the producers.
