However, for “John Carter,” which was apparently doomed from the beginning because of some really bad negative Hollywood vibes, earning budget is a huge step in the right direction.
The film has done well overseas--$188 million—compared to the light domestic tally ($66 million). And it still hasn’t opened in Japan, the last major market left to show the film.
And, according to Film Buff Online, “John Carter” is the #1 selling item in Amazon.com’s Science-Fiction Movie list and ranked #13 overall. This film has the makings of a cult classic, and the CGI will play brilliantly on HDTVs. Good to see some positive news for this movie. It’s been a long time coming.
