Hugh Jackman’s Stardom Fails To Save ‘Pan:’ Warner Bros To Incur Huge Loss Of About $130 Million?
The long awaited Neverland story of Peterpan doesn’t look very promising for Warner Bros. The fantasy adventure flick “Pan,” directed by Joe Wright, is estimated to be a huge flop and might lead to a great monetary loss of approximately $130 million. Read on to find out what the trade analyst are estimating from “Pan.”
According to Hollywood Reporter, the film opened with disastrous figures over the weekend; the huge budget Joe Wright directorial could make $15.3 million at North American territory.
Well, the situation might get real bad as it appears the way “Pan” is struggling even at international levels; it is able to gross about $20.4 million on the weekend. China is one hopeful region where the good performance of “Pan” can lower the losses significantly. Since China is the second largest movie market after Hollywood.
With the failure of “Pan,” Warner Bros can possibly shut the idea of the adventure franchise, initially the studio planned for multi sequel deal with the cast, but now, the big plans for the future looks difficult to materialize.
Warner Bros had already spent an astronomical amount of $150 million on the movie and was expecting to make good profit but it all appears to be in vain. The reason cited by for the failure is mainly the dramatic fall short of the modern audience because of which the plot of Neverland actually fails to generate curiosity among audience.
Also the casting of “The Social Network” actress Rooney Mara starred as Tiger Lily in “Pan” created outrage in the media. Although, both Wright and Mara cited their explanations but the fans didn’t find them convincing enough.
