Why don’t John Carter fans, aside from clamoring for a sequel (which is an impossible dream at the moment), also lobby Disney to officially change the title of the movie to JOHN CARTER OF MARS? As everyone now knows, Disney originally changed the title from A Princess of Mars to John Carter of Mars, then dropped “of Mars” from the title. Andrew Stanton ends the movie by bringing up the title “John Carter of Mars” — i.e. over the course of the movie John Carter becomes John Carter of Mars.
Disney has been roundly criticized for the name change to the blah “John Carter” …. and now that they have officially declared it to be the BIGGEST BOMB IN CINEMA HISTORY……why not stop hiding what it’s about and go ahead and use the title that they allowed Stanton to use at the end of the movie — JOHN CARTER OF MARS.
Here’s the poll:
Look, my thought is — there is no way that Disney is going to make a sequel anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean fans shouldn’t lobby for a sequel — we should.
But this — this is something fans could push and who knows, we might get some traction.
Am I nuts? Is it worth considering?
Would you like this film to go down in cinema history as:
JOHN CARTER OF MARS?
I’m just sayin’.
