Disney's Sci-Fi Action Movie Hits Blu-ray June 5.

As a warrior lost on Earth, John Carter is magically transported to Mars, where the fate of the planet and its people ultimately rest in his hands. With surprising new powers, and epic battles, he rises to become the man he is meant to be and the hero he trulyis.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton (Best Animated Film, 'WALL•E', 2008) 'John Carter' is a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). 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 audiences beyond imagination.

The suggested retail price for 'John Carter's combo pack will be $39.99. There will also be a 4-Disc Combo Pack featuring a copy of the 3D version of the movie which will have a suggested retail price of $49.99.
