Disney spent over $200 million dollars making a movie that only managed to squeak out $20 million profit domestically (a flop by Disney’s standards), along with lackluster reviews.
We enjoyed the film a bit more than most, but even with a talented director like Sam Raimi at the helm and the latest CGI effects, the cast and story just couldn’t get over the rainbow with most viewers.
Thank the 3D upcharge and impressive international box office receipts for this film’s salvation.
