The remarkable Nikki Finke, at deadline.com, has posted an article about the "Shockingly soft" tracking for Disney's John Carter. The film is scheduled to open March 9th, but has very low word of mouth and desire to see it, according to industry surveys.
Disney is already blaming the film on former studio head, Dick Cook, but he has been gone for years and Disney has reworked this film substantially since his departure.The tracking for John Carter is shocking for a film that cost over $250 million. This could be the biggest writeoff of all time.
What do you folks think? Are you excited to see John Carter?
