John Carter stormed into theaters last week and banked over $100 million internationally in its first week of release. The film is based on the character created by author Edgar Rice Burroughs and stars Taylor Kitsch as the title character. Once Carter lands on Mars, he meets a native Martian, Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and a princess named Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). He must decide whether to fight in the burgeoning civil war between Martian species led by the mysterious Matai Shang (Mark Strong).
Disney’s film has plenty of action, intrigue, romance and above all… great John Carter quotes.
