A new report has claimed Disney's 'Tomorrowland' could cost the studio as much as $140 million
Disney could reportedly lose as much as $140 million on 'Tomorrowland'.
The Brad Bird-directed sci-fi movie - which features George Clooney - was released last month, but has fallen dramatically short of the studio's expectations, proving to be a real flop at the box office.
Thus far, the movie has taken $170 million worldwide, despite costing $180 million to make, with a further $150 million spent on marketing, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
This comes shortly after Brad Bird admitted said he was determined his movie would send over a positive message to cinemagoers.
He explained: "Disney's message is always about trying to make the world a better place and that's really what we wanted to do with this movie - Walt Disney had a vision of the future where science wasn't the enemy.
"I think that Walt lived in a time which was just as turbulent as the time we live in now, if not more so."
The director also insisted he didn't pay much attention to other sci-fi movies and their themes.
He shared: "Making this movie was about what we could do as opposed to what everybody else could do."
