Tune in to the all-new episode next Monday at 10/9c to see who among the fae will face death.
What’s the verdict on John Carter?
by Doc on Mar.09, 2012, under Movies
Despite the fact that some members of the media seem to want to see John Carter crash and burn terribly, and the early returns aren’t great (it is looking at a ~$10 million Friday and $30+ million weekend, for a solid #2 behind The Lorax), I’ve been hearing a lot of good comments. Here is a review from Inside the Magic on why it’s worth seeing. And it appears that the movie struck big in Russia, where it took in $6.5 million – and is the country’s biggest ever opening day. Rating are mixed on Rotten Tomatoes where it is currently 51%.
Did Disney’s lack of understanding how to market the film doom it, or has the last-minute effort had some effect to save it?
I’m not sure when I’ll get the chance to see it, but I’ll let you know when I do.
