Sarah from Cinesnark says that John Carter might break even, eventually, but that itΓÇÖs still considered a bust considering how much it cost to make and market it. Yes, John Carter took a massive dump. But thereΓÇÖs one good thing to have come from it:

Taylor Kitsch gets papped now.

I mean, 3 months ago, you couldnΓÇÖt pay a photographer to recognise Taylor Kitsch. Photographers donΓÇÖt watch FNL. They had no idea. And now?

Now TK goes to London and they shoot him leaving a restaurant. Maybe theyΓÇÖll even shoot him at the airport. Or having lunch in LA. The point is, itΓÇÖs so much easier now finding new pictures of him when you request it for shout-outs.

We must thank John Carter for this.

So hereΓÇÖs TK in London today for the Battleship photo call with Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker, and Peter Berg. As mentioned earlier this week, Battleship will open a month earlier in Europe so as to avoid Euro 2012 and capitalise on the international market. After all, itΓÇÖs the international market thatΓÇÖs saving John CarterΓÇÖs ass. Universal is smart to put aside the tradition of releasing domestically first and go for where the money is. What difference does it make to the people in America anyway?
