Tomorrowland just might go down in history as one of Disney’s biggest flops stated Yahoo Finance. The studio that Walt built produced some mega hits over the decades. Sure, there were a few misfires here and there. Tomorrowland, however, might be the biggest of all Disney catastrophes. Supposedly, the studio is going to lose about $140 million on the film. (Disney’s previous big-time failure, The Lone Ranger, may have done worse. ) That is an enormous loss that is going to drain from the profits made by Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Thankfully, those two movies are sure to keep Disney out of fiscal trouble.
What a shame. Anyone who has visited the popular theme parks has surely walked away from visits to Tomorrowland with a sense of wonder. The film leaves you with a sense of boredom.
A lot of people probably didn’t even go see the film due to the muddled marketing campaign. Tomorrowland really was a botched film on every level. Hopefully, Disney can look back on all the mistakes and avoid making them in the future.
