The Lorax Destroys John Carter

All that crazy marketing couldn't help Disney's John Carter ($30.6 million) to claim the top spot at the box office this weekend, as it was bested by The Lorax's ($39.1 million) second weekend... Ouch. The reported $250 million budgeted John Carter will have a long, long way to recoup that amount. However, the overseas market may fare off better.

As for the other movies debuting this weekend: Silent House and A Thousand Words, both of which are also not doing too well. Eddie Murphy seems to be getting it all wrong for the past decade. Luckily for him, this weekend everyone will be talking about John Carter's underwhelming box office.
