"They're spending USD 250 million for two dudes on a horse? Where's the money going?," Wahlberg said in an interview to the New York Times. Disney revealed yesterday that they may suffer a loss of USD 160 to USD 190 because of the box office failure of the Johnny Depp starrer.
Depp, on his part, has blamed stinging reviews for the underwhelming performance of the movie. Wahlberg agreed that there was a greater scrutiny on movie business now but he also blamed the studios for serving similar effect-driven films to the audiences.
"First and foremost, the media is targeting all these movies. There's intense scrutiny on us, way more than before. "They are spending so much money to pull the wool over the audience's eyes with these effects-driven movies.
It's not like 'Jurassic Park' where you saw something groundbreaking and innovative and said 'Holy... I gotta see that. Every end-of-the-Earth movie kind of feels the same."
