30 Movie Franchises That Started But Never Finished
John Carter was an idea that sounded great on paper. It was based on a fairly popular fantasy novel, and it seemed like it could tap into a combination of elements from movies like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings that had been enormously successful. It also featured a hot young talent in Taylor Kitsch.
Unfortunately, basically every decision the movie made failed miserably. It didn’t do well with critics or at the box office, and all talk of sequels has basically evaporated in the years since its release. That’s probably for the best. Not every epic fantasy story is meant for the big screen.
