Los Angeles, Mar 11: “Dr. Seuss' the Lorax” has easily beaten Edgar Rice Burroughs' “John Carter” at the weekend box office.


Studio estimates Sunday put “The Lorax” at No. 1 for the second-straight weekend as the animated adventure based on the children's book took in $39.1 million. That raised its 10-day domestic total to $122 million, making “The Lorax” the year's top-grossing release.

“John Carter,” based on “Tarzan” creator Burroughs' tales of the interplanetary adventurer, opened in second-place with $30.6 million. That's an awful start given the whopping $250 million that Disney reportedly spent to make “John Carter,” which also earned generally poor reviews that will hurt its long-term prospects.

The movie's salvation could come overseas, where “John Carter” opened in 55 markets with $70.6 million, giving it a worldwide total of $101.2 million.
