2012’s Biggest Surprises At the Movies
John Carter's 'Falien' Landscape
If 2012 was the year of Channing Tatum, it was the non-start of Taylor Kitsch. Hot off TV’s ‘Friday Night Lights’, the actor took three stabs at big-screen stardom and they all bombed, starting with sci-fi epic ‘John Carter’. This costly misfire from Disney prompted the studio to report a significant loss mere days after the film opened. Ouch. Kitsch’s subsequent flops, ‘Battleship’ and ‘Savages’, failed to do anything other than earn the actor a potentially-permanent cell in Movie Jail.
