The world has yet to catch on to the quality of Andrew Stanton‘s John Carter, I feel, but I predict that this film is going to be loved for decades. I certainly can’t wait to get my hands on the Blu-ray.
The BBFC have had a look at all of the material on there, and classified it all. For what it’s worth, they’ve given the supplements a 12 rating, just like the movie itself.
Here’s the full list of what’s included on the disc, coming to a full runtime of 90 minutes and 44 seconds.

00:02:38:04 GROOMSMEN ASSASSINS
00:10:40:12 (JOHN CARTER – BONUS MATERIAL: 100 YEARS IN THE MAKING)
I bolded the names of the deleted scenes. Most are pretty brief, but Thoat Ride and Groomsmen Assassins seem fairly meaty. I assume they can each be viewed without commentary, as well as with.
The US release date for the disc is June 5th, and it’s available for pre-order now. We’re still waiting to hear when it will be out in the UK.
