What Really Happened? - October 3, 2018 - 1:30:58

John Carter is one of history's biggest box office flops: $250 million... gone.

Guests: Andrew Stanton (filmmaker), Michael Sellers (author, filmmaker, former CIA officer), Germain Lussier (film critic), Robert McKee (author, lecturer, story consultant), Matt Singer (film critic), and Brooks Barnes (New York Times Media and Entertainment reporter)
