The epic film which reportedly cost Disney a $200 million dollar loss is tearing up the home video front as John Carter tops the home video sales. The film which stars Taylor Kitsch has taken the top spot on both Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
Lets hope that John Carter will make enough money for Disney on the home video sales to warrant a sequel to the fantastic sci-fi epic from Andrew Stanton. If you enjoyed the original film and demand that Disney make a sequel I highly recommend you head on over to Take me back to Barsoom! I want John Carter to have a sequel which is a dedicated group organised to help make a sequel to John Carter possible.
From Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes John Carter—a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). John Carter is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
John Carter is currently available Disney 3D Blu-ray/Blu-ray and DVD.
