Disney brings to life an iconic hero, John Carter, in 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 truly is.

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 heart-throb 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 Thoughts:

I don’t know who was more excited to see the John Carter Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack that we received for review, my husband or my kids.  From a glance at the box cover they were captivated.  It was quickly passed around and they could not wait to view it.  I will admit It even looked appealing to me and I am not a big science fiction fan.  The movie is full of very cool special effects and is an epic adventure filled with acts of bravery and great discovery, feats of love and compassion, and plenty of mystery that had us all captivated.

John is thrust into conflict on Barsoom, Mars and it has all the elements you want in a great adventure film like this.  He has the country of Helium to save, evil to battle by the name of Sab Than, love to discover with a Mars Princess, Dejah of Helium and aliens called Tharks who become his friends and help him to save Helium.  After defeating evil he finds himself back on Earth where he spends years and his wealth trying to get back to Mars and to reunite with his wife.  I won’t spoil the end for you by telling you what happens because I would be pretty annoyed if someone did that to me.  So you will just have to watch for yourself.
