John Carter of DVDs

I expected Disney to dump the DVD of John Carter on the market quietly, like a Las Vegas gambler burying a body in the desert. But the Mouse House is giving the release top-tier treatment as a 4-Disc Combo Pack (3D BD + 2D BD + DVD + Digital Copy), as well as a 2-Disc Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD), a 3D DVD, and a 1-Disc version. Oh, and and On-Demand. All of this on June 5.

Including calling Andrew Stanton the Oscar-winning director of WALL-E (something the ads for the theatrical release never did) and cites star Taylor Kitsch’s FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS connection and Lynn Collins’ role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

There are also a bunch of bonus features on the four-disc version.

Blu-ray bonus features:

·      Disney Second Screen – Explore John Carter’s journal with this innovative in-world experience and uncover a trove of fascinating details that extend the mythology of the movie.

·      360 Degrees of John Carter – Experience every aspect of the filmmaking process on one of the movie’s biggest production days.

·      Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary by Director, Andrew Stanton

·      Barsoom Bloopers

·      Plus all DVD features

DVD bonus features:

·      100 Years In The Making – Follow the journey of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ story, from its origins as a pulp novel to its arrival onscreen.

·      Audio Commentary with Filmmakers

The two-disc combo pack has

·      All Blu-ray bonus features

·      All DVD bonus features

And the single-disc version boasts

·      All DVD bonus features

The 3D disc and the digital copy have not bonus features on them.

One thought on “John Carter of DVDs

  1. I already pre-ordered mine!

    Unfortunately, Disney still doesn’t get it.
    The cover art is still that same, boring look.

    Where are the Airships, the Tharks, the Therns, the Warhoons??
    Where is the mention of Barsoom, or Edgar Rice Burroughs???
    And most importantly, where is Dejah Thoris????
    (and, by the way, Who is John Carter?????)

    Some of the fans have come up with great looking designs for the DVD covers.
    Too bad Disney’s marketing department lacks that kind of talent.

    Sorry. I’m still upset over Disney’s mis-management of this Excellent film.
    You called it right from the beginning when you blogged about the lack of promotion for the film.


Oh, yeah? Sez you!
