LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Dr. Seuss' the Lorax" easily beats Edgar Rice Burroughs' "John Carter" at the weekend box office. Studio estimates put "The Lorax" at No. 1 for the second-straight weekend. "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." Eddie Murphy's new comedy "A Thousand Words" is a dud, with just a sixth-place opening.
