Disney To Lose $140M On “Tomorrowland”?

Brad Bird’s fantasy adventure “Tomorrowland” sadly looks like it could be a major dud for Disney Studios, though not quite as large a one as their other big-budget write-offs in recent years like “John Carter” and “The Lone Ranger”.

THR reports that the project, which cost $180 million to produce and a further $150 million to market, currently sits at $169.9 million at the worldwide box-office and isn’t expected to gross much more than $200 million by the time it finishes its global rollout (China in particular has seemingly ignored the movie).

That means it could be a $120-140 million loss for the company, their first financial misfire in two years and the third major one of 2015 so far in the wake of both “Jupiter Ascending” and “Seventh Son”. Of course, with Disney’s track record and other films this year, the loss is not expected to have much impact at all.
