'John Carter' Real Costs Revealed?
While we look towards the future of John Carter of Mars, Forbes went back and revealed that Andrew Stanton's movie cost more than you thought, A lot more. According to http://www.forbes.com/sites/csylt/2014/10/22/revealed-the-307-million-cost-of-disneys-john-carter/ the actual production costs of John Carter ran up to a whopping $306.6 million. That's right, $306.6 million. Disney was able to recoup some of that through British tax credit to the tune of $42.9 million, meaning that the net costs still ended up around $264 million, more than the reported $250 million budget that has been reported since 2012. In case your curious that makes it the third most expensive movie Disney has ever produced behind the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. OK the real question is what the heck cost so much? If anyone has any idea leave them below and hope that the next time someone knows how to balance a checkbook and can get better tax rebates.
