A new report at Forbes indicates that in the wake of financial report disclosures by Disney, it seems that James Mangold’s “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” lost a small fortune for the Mouse House.

According to movie economics expert Caroline Reid at the outlet, the production spent $134.2 million more on making the movie than it is received in ticket sales.

The filings reveal that with the post-production numbers in, the movie’s total budget came to an astonishing $387.2 million.

The film ultimately ended up grossing $384 million worldwide at the box-office, with the studio receiving around half that amount ($192 million)

Thanks to tax reimbursements from the British government for filming in the UK, the project was able to knock a total of around $61 million of its cost – bringing its net spending down to $326.2 million.

Forbes calculated the loss from there (net spend minus Disney box-office share), but the figure is likely out as the statements do not show the marketing costs for the movie, nor the revenue generated from merchandise, disc and digital sales.

Harrison Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Toby Jones, Mads Mikkelsen and Antonio Banderas co-starred in the film which is now streaming on the Disney+ service.
