March 9, 2012. One year ago was the day Andrew Stanton‘s epic Disney adventure John Carter opened in theaters. For some, it was the culmination of a lifelong dream. For most it was a non-event as the film grossed only $30 million opening weekend, not even enough to take the top box-office spot. The day marked the beginning of the end for the film that reportedly cost $250 million, as it grossed only $76 million domestically and $282 million worldwide. Disney reportedly lost about $200 million on the movie.
But John Carter has its fans. Many of them are online and one of them is author Michael D. Sellers. He wrote a book called John Carter and the Gods of Hollywood, which examines why the film failed and why it took so long to make it to the big screen. This very website is quoted numerous times, which makes sense, because we wrote one or two articles about John Carter leading up to release.
Sounds like a cool book, right? To celebrate the one year anniversary of the film, Amazon is offering the book to Kindle users for free. Read More »
