'Pan' Does Not Fly But Martian Stays High

The fantasy 'Pan', costing an estimated $150 million to produce, earned $15.5 million in its opening weekend, according to Rentrak estimates Sunday making it one of the worst bombs of the year. Early tracking did not look promising for the Joe Wright-directed film but still predicted that "Pan" would open at least in the $20 million range.


"Pan" now ranks among 2015's biggest flops, including "Fantastic Four" and "Tomorrowland." International earnings don't look promising either. The film brought in a weak $20.5 million. For comparison, "The Martian" earned $58.1 million.


"This had a lot going against it," said Paul Dergarabedian, a senior media analyst for Rentrak.


He also believes competition in the family market from the Halloween-themed animated feature "Hotel Transylvania 2" hurt "Pan."
