THE AVENGERS Bump Boosts JOHN CARTER Numbers
The phenomenal success of The Avengers has helped Disney in more ways than one. John Carter numbers increased considerably thanks to superhero support.
Disney big budget disappointment, John Carter, received a surprising boost from an unlikely source this week. Formerly ranked number 38 at the box office, John Carter rose to number 12 thanks to a boost in ticket sales from drive-in double features.
Normally, double feature movies packaged with a blockbuster don't get this kind of support, but The Avengers massive haul helped John Carter add $1.5 million to it's total. That's 1,223 percent growth. Disney still lost some money with the Bradbury science fiction spectacle, but every little bit they can eke out will help them recoup their losses.
John Carter's totals now stand at $70.8 million domestically and $208.2 million overseas.
