DVD / blu ray John Carter details

Morning fellow Barsoomians, well it looks like the John Carter DVD Blu-ray package is up on at Amazon for pre-order.


The artwork is hideous, but despite that the real decision is which one we’re going to buy. I don’t have a 3-D TV but that may be the one I need because it has a digital copy .

I use Apple TV and I’ve been pretty happy with buying the iTunes versions that have all the extras, but I have to admit that I’m leaning towards something I can put on my shelf  (although my brain keeps going back to that hideous cover.) I have heard that there will be a metal box version coming out here Canada through the Future Shop. Those usually have pretty nice packaging.

Despite my complaints about the hideous cover, overall I think the features look pretty good for the DVD.

• Blu-ray 3D™
• Blu-ray™ Feature Film + Bonus
• DVD Feature Film + Bonus
• Digital Copy of Feature Film
• 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
• 100 Years in the Making — Follow the journey of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Story, from its origins as a pulp novel to its arrival onscreen
• Audio Commentary with Filmmakers

And to wrap things up and just to torture you and me here’s an image I picked up off the future shop site of a metal box John Carter cover. I think it’s a fan knock off but I really want it and  I’m sure you do too. Maybe the best thing to do once the DVD is in my hands is to make my own cover…

  1. I see on the Back to Barsoom site (backtobarsoom.com) that they are showing a nice JC cover you can order from Getcovers.net. It might be something you would like.

  3. Ooo that metal case is nice! Fans are showing ALL of the talent. Disney needs to ditch their current marketing dept and hire these incredible artist instead!
