Taylor Kitsch doesn’t know what y’all are complaining about, in his mind, John Carter is doing fine thank you very much.
After being only able to recoup $66 million domestically since opening last month, a lot of people are going out of their way to point out that John Carter is a mega flop, especially after Disney spent $250 million-plus on it. But once you factor in the money the movie’s made overseas, Carter’s made over $254 million worldwide so far. And you know what? Kitsch is cool with that.
“I don’t see it as a failure, that’s the thing. I’m incredibly proud of it, and I would do it all over again,” he said to Yahoo). “If someone told me that my first lead film will make well over 300 million dollars, that’s a good thing.”
“I know personally I literally did everything possible I could have in John Carter, and in Battleship and in Savages. That’s why I prep so hard, and why I push myself so hard, so I can have no regrets.”
Kitsch also talked about the fans’ (all five of them) desire to see a sequel to the film.
“If you are going to pay attention to the materialistic part of it, you also need to pay attention to the fans. For them to have these Facebook pages and rally to get another one going, it’s quite flattering.”
So there’s a good chance John Carter will break even at least, so take that to the bank haters! Kitsch owns you. He will have the last laugh. Hahahahahahahaha…. Seeing you on opening weekend for Battleship, suckas!
