A Warrior On Earth Becomes a Hero On Mars
New On Disney Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Blu-ray 3D™, HD Digital, DVD,
and On-Demand June 5th

Disney brings to life an iconic hero, John Carterin a visually stunning new world with heart-pounding action. The heroic epic adventure John Carter arrives on Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray 3D™, HD Digital, DVD and On-Demand June 5, 2012, just in time for Father’s Day!  
As a warrior lost on Earth, John Carter is magically transported to Mars, where the fate of the planet and its people ultimately rest in his hands.  With surprising new powers, and epic battles, he rises to become the man he is meant to be and the hero he trulyis.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton (Best Animated Film, WALL•E, 2008) John Carter is a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). John Carter is a war-weary, former military captain who’s inexplicably transported to Mars and reluctantly becomes embroiled in an epic conflict. It’s a world on the brink of collapse, and Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands. Stunning special effects, great characters and villains — and complete with extraordinary bonus features — John Carter is a heroic and inspirational adventure that will thrill audiences beyond imagination. 

This ambitious and unforgettable screen adaptation of the classic novel “A Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs, stars heartthrob Taylor Kitsch (“Friday Night Lights,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) in the title role, Lynn Collins (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” “The Number 23”) as Dejah Thoris, Willem Dafoe (“The English Patient,” “Spider Man”) as Tars Tarkas, and Dominic West (“300,” “The Wire”) as Sab Than. The screenplay is written by Stanton, Mark Andrews and Michael Chabon.

Our Review...

We enjoyed watching John Carter in 3D. The special effects were awesome! We were laughing pretty hard when John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) gets transported to Mars and he is trying to walk or run and he kept falling on his face since the gravity is different on Mars. Then when he figures out he can jump really high he starts having fun. There is plenty of action and romance in this movie. One of my favorite characters is the dog/creature that loves John and stays by his side. He is so cute and funny. There are a ton of fight scenes that are really cool too. Overall this is a good movie that the whole family will have fun watching.

The special features are interesting to watch. I liked the "100 years in the making" It talks about the comic book and how it got started and then made it to the big screen. The deleted scenes and bloopers are good too. There are plenty of special features to keep entertained for hours.
