The latest Peter Pan movie, simply called ‘Pan’, is shaping up to be one of the biggest box office flops of the year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘Pan’ could lose its studio Warner Bros. more than $150 million (almost £100 million). The film cost around £100 million to make, plus the same again to market. ‘Pan’ is currently stuck at just £26 million at the global box office so far, and faces a long road to profitability. In contrast, ‘Jurassic World’ – the year’s biggest film – made more than £135 million. ‘Pan’ is a kind off prequel to the classic J.M.
