‘John Carter’ Star ‘Testy’ Over Flop

Hollywood is abuzz about the epic flop of Disney's John Carter, the Mars adventure that was supposed to turn lead actor Taylor Kitsch into a major star. The movie cost around $350 million to make and market, and Disney expects to lose $200 million, the largest loss in Hollywood history. The previous holder of that illustrious title was Cutthroat Island, a 1995 disaster that cost its studio $147 million and put it out of business. A source close to Kitsch said the young actor isn't taking John Carter's failure well, and got “testy” when people joked about its dismal ticket sales.
