John Carter DVD and Blu Ray comes out on Tuesday! EW has posted a deleted scene of the original opening scene of the movie! Watch Lynn as Dejah Thoris in the opening scene:
It’s no secret that John Carter went through extensive additional photography in its two-year gestation period from production to premiere. While director Andrew Stanton gave a full-throated defense of the new scenes as a part of the creative process he’d learned while working at Pixar, the bad press caused by them contributed to the impression that John Carter was a troubled movie.
One of the biggest scenes that Stanton reshot was the opening to the film. In its Oct., 2011, profile of Stanton, The New Yorker chronicled the Pixar brain trust’s reaction to the scene, which heavily featured Lynn Collins as Barsoomian (i.e. Martian) Princess Dejah Thoris: “[T]hey were confused by the film’s beginning, in which Princess Dejah delivered a lecture about the state of the Barsoomian wars, and they found her arch and stony.”
The opening was re-imagined with a pithier history of the Barsoomian wars, cutting directly to a pitched aerial battle, and much of Collins’ scene was reshot and placed later in the film. But you can see the original scene in this exclusive clip from the John Carter Blu-ray edition (out June 5) below. Many of the visual effects are not complete; the shots of rock faces in the Arizona and Utah desert, for example, were meant to be digitally remade into the crumbling edifices of once-great Barsoomian buildings. But the thrust of the scene is still clear. Check it out:
Happy Birthday Lynn Collins! Lynn turns 35 years old today! Make sure to tweet and wish Lynn a happy birthday @lynncollins7!
Looks like The Avengers is helping with box office boost for John Carter:
While most of the world was paying attention to The Avengers over the weekend, fellow Disney pic John Carter was making its own news.
John Carter zoomed up the domestic box office office chart from No. 38 the week before to No. 12 — thanks to being paired with The Avengers at more than 150 drive-ins across the country.
John Carter — which resulted in a $200 million loss for Disney — grossed $1.5 million and was up a staggering 1,223 percent over the previous weekend. The film’s domestic gross is now $70.8 million, while it has grossed $208.2 million overseas. Those are big numbers, but a hefty production budget and marketing spend put Disney into the red.
It’s common practice for drive-ins to offer double features. Usually, however, it doesn’t boost the older film’s bottom line to such a degree. But Avengers did such massive business — the film opened to $207.4 million, the biggest opening of all time –that it made a difference.
The average cost of a drive-in ticket is $8. Studios don’t disclose how they divvy up the ticket sales between two films playing in a double feature.
I have added pics of Lynn at Free Arts NYC 2012 Annual Art Auction on Monday with Steven. I have also added an additional pic of Lynn at the after party for Magic City New York Premiere:
