Just a heads-up the 4-disc set currently has a $5 clippable coupon brining it down to $29.99. Amazon will no doubt lower their price even further so it's best to lock that in now as it's only good till April 5th

I second that. It would appear that the Blu-ray release will also be just "John Carter" and will not adopt the "...from Mars" moniker.

As you might be able to tell from my avatar, I love this movie. It's absurdly underrated. Can't wait to own it. Seen it twice already, loved the 3D. I'm pretty much planning on investing into a 3D projector because of it.

And can we change the topic title? It's not John Carter "from" Mars. John Carter is the title. Even John Carter of Mars is more correct.

Agreed. Loved the movie. Not the greatest film classic ever, but a *good* movie and one that's head-and-shoulders better than most of the forgettable cgi-action-fest stuff that Hollywood brings our way. The post-conversion 3D was the best I've seen yet... still would have been better native, but this is the only live-action post-converted film I'll get in 3D on blu-ray. (3D 46" Samsung LCD and eventually I'll upgrade from my 2D JVC LCOS PJ to a 3D PJ once they solve brightness and flicker issues for 3D front PJ to my satisfaction and affordability)

I really hope we can see more of the series in the future, but if Disney loses $$ I suppose it won't be likely.
LOSSLESS audio... something that belongs on EVERY Blu-ray Disc. Every one.

If it's not 1.5 screen widths, it's not "Home Theater" -it's TV.

Ok so he's watching himself fight those apes apparently Anyways i'll surely get the 3D combo, really enjoyed this in IMAX. I hope this turns out to be a 5-disc set though, would love to see more behind the scenes material.

Why did this movie cost 250 MILLION??? C'mon disney, like it was even a surprise this would be a bust. The Avengers will cost less to make than this! 30 Million less!

Stating the obvious, I know. Might check out though, the trailers looked alright.

Same. I still have a $5 gift card from TRU from the Lady and the Tramp promotion. If Up 3d doesn't release in May, I'll just use it on this.

This one is a great opportunity for custom covers makers!

Yeah, but you can't do that with Disney releases. Their slipcovers are the best

This is what the slipcover should have looked like in my opinion. (note: I have little to no photo manipulating skills so this is a little rough)

You will probably enjoy it, really not as bad as everyone is making it to be.

I will probably not get the Blu-ray due to price. In the last year the Disney new releases with their Blu-ray, DVD...combo have all been $30 or more over here. The Incredibles are still at $38 almost a year after release. I enjoy Disney movies but the prices are just to nuts and prefer skipping them.
