The flop that wasn't

John Carter has gone down as one of the biggest flops in movie history. Disney projected that they might lose $200 million on it.

Except it is a huge hit overseas. So far it has taken in $172 million in addition to its $72 million domestic take. That is a total of $264 million on a movie that cost around $250 million to make.

Disney is not out of the woods, yet. It has been reported that they spent another $100 million on marketing so it still has a ways to go before it breaks even. At the same time, it is still in first run and hasn't opening in Japan, yet. Then there are the DVD and Blu Ray sales.

We might see the planned sequels, yet.
