‘Alice: Through the Looking Glass’ bombs worldwide as shadow looms over Johnny Depp
Maybe it’s Johnny Depp who should take a long look in the mirror.
Alice Through the Looking Glass was a colossal flop in its opening weekend, taking in an estimated $28 million domestic — about a quarter of what the original did, a resoundingly terrible result — and the reasons being put forth for that are curious indeed.
Not even international audiences, which powered Alice in Wonderland to more than $1 billion in worldwide receipts in 2010, seemed all that interested — Looking Glass opened across most of the globe’s major markets this weekend, making only $65 million.
