Taylor Kitsch Defends JOHN CARTER; Says He's "Incredibly Proud" Of The Film

Despite the fact that the movie is expected to result in a massive loss for Disney, John Carter himself (Taylor Kitsch) doesn't view it as a failure and is proud of his contribution to the adaptation.


"I don't see it as a failure, that's the thing," revealed the Canadian actor in a recent interview. "I'm incredibly proud of it and I would do it all over again. If someone told me that my first lead film will make well over 300 million dollars, that's a good thing."

That's one way of looking at it (in fairness, it's only the ridiculously high budget which has resulted in the movie being viewed as a "flop") but Kitsch isn't letting any of the negative reports faze him. "I know personally I literally did everything possible I could have in John Carter, and in Battleship and in Savages. That's why I prep so hard, and why I push myself so hard, so I can have no regrets. If it makes 10 bucks at the box office, I still did everything I possibly could. Literally no one will outwork me and that's the way I approach it."

As for the fans who have taken to Twitter and Facebook in order to get Disney to give a sequel the green light, he added, "If you are going to pay attention to the materialistic part of it, you also need to pay attention to the fans. For them to have these Facebook pages and rally to get another one going, it's quite flattering."
