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…
