Disney loses big on big budget sci-fi flop John Carter


Disney’s film division has announced it expects a huge second quarter operating loss of around US$100 million on the back of a poor box office showing by animated science-fiction movie John Carter.

The story of a Civil War soldier who gets transported to Mars, the US$250 million movie is estimated to post a $US 200 million loss after losing badly at the box office to Universal’s animated Dr Zeuss tale The Lorax.
