According to THR, Bryan Singer’s Jack The Giant Slayer might be the new John Carter. Though it opened at number one when it arrived in theatres, Oz The Great and Powerful took its sport shortly after and since then, the film has been forgotten about. At this rate, even though it will likely bring in a cool $200 million, it will still result in a $125-$140 million loss for the studio.
The film had a production budget of close to $200 million and once you factor in the marketing costs and various delays it suffered, you can start to see where that loss comes from. Oddly enough, critics didn’t seem to hate the film, it just didn’t catch on with audiences and failed to make much of a splash.
