Disney to Lose $200 Million on John Carter

When John Carter director Andrew Stanton spoke to Vulture just a week and a half ago, he optimistically said of the would-be blockbuster, "We’ve always envisioned this as a trilogy ... so it’s really like we’ve made the pilot to a season we’re hoping to get." Well, this isn't going to help Disney pick up that pilot: The studio announced today that it will lose $200 million on the underperforming movie in the financial quarter that ends in March. So, no Saturday morning TV show for Woola, then? Damn it.
