Peter Jackson’s epic tale “Mortal Engines” hit theaters this weekend and turned out to be an epic flop that’s set to lose more than $140 million.
The film only earned $7.5 million at the box office to come in fifth place in the U.S., and it didn’t do well across the globe either. As a matter of fact, Deadline is reporting that the film could lose a total of $150 million.
The theory behind the poor showing is that theatergoers aren’t ready to delve into a totally new fantasy world.
