‘John Carter’ Director Reveals Cancelled Plans for Two Sequels

Disney had high hopes for the sci-fi adventure John Carter. Based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic A Princess of Mars, the studio couldn't decide on a title, originally calling it John Carter of Mars before it became something much more generic. The movie opened on March 8, earning a decent enough $30 million over the weekend. But then it went onto only generate $73 million domestically against a $250 million budget, becoming one of the biggest bombs in the studio's history. Worldwide, it would eventually take in $284.1 million, but its poor showing in the states spelled doom for the franchise.

Some blamed the title and the marketing. Some blamed director Andrew Stanton, making his first live-action movie after finding success at Pixar with Finding Nemo and WALL-E. Many fans don't blame the movie itself, a wild and rollicking old fashion space opera that has gained a strong following since it took a nosedive at the box office.
