I have placed a link to an open letter to Disney Studios. They have definitely done a poor marketing job with the John Carter film.
What I find more interesting is the box office numbers, when comparing The Hunger Games to John Carter. Internationally John Carter did not do so badly, albeit it could have done better. What’s odd is there is no love for the Hunger Games internationally. The box-office for The Hunger Games is mainly domestic. Does this tell us something about our taste for film in North America, versus others around the world?
