  1. This movie was very, very good. No it wasn’t Avengers caliber (what is?). But the critics dog piled this movie for no good reason. I’ll be getting it for sure. I highly recommend it. This movie flopped on ticket sales, but it isn’t a flop.

  2. I very much enjoyed the movie. This was probably one of the better adaptations of a Burroughs book.
    I really hope the market department was sacked over how they handled this movie.

    What? No sequels? Darn it.That’s what happens when you drop the ball on properly marketing a film you spent hundreds of millions to make.It blows up in your face and hits your wallet hard then you end up losing $200 million dollars or more in the box office.

    • Actually, that’s pretty much the norm these days. The first time the release between theatrical and home video was shortened was with Tim Burton’s Batman back in 1989. The movie came out in the summer, and was still going strong well into August. Warner released the movie around November if I remember correctly. It caused an uprising among theater owners, but they let up. Today, 90 days after a 10 week theatrical run is not uncommon. Also – Chronicle just became available on DVD this past week…

    Echoing what others have said – the movie was actually pretty fun, so it’s unfortunate the terrible marketing/sales will forever overshadow it.

  5. I’m actually holding out hope for sequels. The problem of “marketing dropping the ball” seems to be mostly limited to the domestic (USA) market…
    While only earning about $70 million here, it made over $200 million worldwide to more than cover the $250 million production cost.
    Hopefully the BluRay/DVD will be a big seller and Disney will move forward with another film in the series.

      Unfortunately that’s not going to happen.After the film was considered a flop and after tallying the total number they could not make their money back with the John Carter movie.In order to break even the expensive film needed to earn at least $700 million globally.

      It didn’t and so any sequel talk is dead when it comes to the House of Mouse.They are done with John Carter.That’s a fact.After losing $200 million dollars, it left a bad taste in their mouth.When the John Carter movie bombed the Disney studio head Rich Ross stepped down.The timing of his departure after the film failed to make it’s money back is no coincidence.

      John Carter is indeed a great film but the sequel idea right now is wishful thinking on our part.The Disney company made big bank with the Avengers movie and are ready to move on to better projects with more potential.

      The purchase of Marvel comics was the best thing that could have ever happened to them.They have seen the light and of course the billions of dollars the Marvel comics superheroes can deliver to them from the film adaptations of their most iconic characters.

      The Disney corp is focused on their Pixar films,other projects and will most definitely back up all of the future Marvel comics films,animated cartoons and tv projects.
