Weekend Box Office: 'John Carter' Crashes, 'Lorax' Holds #1, 'Valor' Still In Top 5

Via DHD:

Universal’s $70M-budget holdover Dr Suess’ The Lorax is #1 and Disney’s $250M-budget 3D sci-fi epic John Carter will finish only #2. Friday’s box office numbers for director Andrew Stanton’s turkey came in even weaker than predicted. Now let’s see if word of mouth can help this box office flop which earned a ‘B+’ CinemaScore. Eddie Murphy has yet another bomb in Paramount’s A Thousand Words which received a ‘B-‘ CinemaScore. But audiences gave Open Road’s horror genre film Silent House the dreaded ‘F’ CinemaScore.
