John Carter 3D


Street Date: September 14, 2015

Studio: Disney

Region: ABC*

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition

Extras:
360 Degrees of John Carter
100 Years in the Making
Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary by Director Andrew Stanton
Barsroom Bloopers
Audio Commentary with Director Andrew Stanton and Producers Jim Morris and Lindsey Collins
Includes 2D version

Technical Info: Previously: (lossy) DTS-HD HR 7.1, AR 2.40:1, 2x50GB Discs

Synopsis: From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton (Best Animated Film, WALL-E, 2008) comes John Carter - a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic novel, 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 you beyond imagination.

Comments: Region-Coding: Will likely be region-free (Thanks Disney.) USA Version had lossless audio, doubtful they will use same discs.

Not long after arriving John and Laura meet two elderly sisters, one of whom believes herself to be physic and insists that she has seen the spirit of John and Lauraís daughter. She also insists that John has the physic ability also and must leave the city as he is in great danger. Laura becomes concerned but John doesnít believe any of it and is unfazed.

Donít look now was the third film from visionary director Nicolas Roeg (Performance) and was one of the most powerful and enterprising movies of the 1970ís well known for its notorious sex scene between Sutherland and Christie. (Matt Fairfield)

Comments: Region-Coding-likely region B locked as was previous release, StudioCanal has this habit.

Glad I got my order in quickly.

The temp artwork on the site listing doesn't match what darkdaze posted here, though.

Us working folks never get a chance to order these hot items - not exactly going to check my email before work and when I get home it's gone.

Update: Looks like they will graciously sell you Age of Ultron if you purchase the Z-Box, which to me is a waste of cash.
