Here's more detail from www.filmforce.net

Bleak news for Fox, as the animated epic Titan A.E. tanked. Genre fans seem
to dig the look of the film, but were down on the story. The film just
didn't seem to have what it took to reach the masses. Some fans of animated
film see this as a potential blow to more experimental animated films being
made in Hollywood. It's possible that studios might see the weak
performance of Titan as a sign that an animated film that isn't just a
"cartoon" can't perform. Another group down on Titan are science fiction
fans, who were hoping for a little bit of redemption after the dismal
Battlefield Earth. Alas, Titan was not to be their savior.
