Disney had high hopes for the sci-fi adventure John Carter. Based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic A Princess of Mars, the studio couldn't decide on a title, originally calling it John Carter of Mars before it became something much more generic. The movie opened on March 8, earning a decent enough $30 million over the weekend. But then it went onto only generate $73 million domestically against a $250 million budget, becoming one of the biggest bombs in the studio's history. Worldwide, it would eventually take in $284.1 million, but its poor showing in the states spelled doom for the franchise.
Some blamed the title and the marketing. Some blamed director Andrew Stanton, making his first live-action movie after finding success at Pixar with Finding Nemo and Wall-e. Many fans don't blame the movie itself, a wild and rollicking old fashion space opera that has gained a strong following since it took a nosedive at the box office. »
Many people did not enjoy Andrew Stanton's (Finding Nemo, Wall-e) motion picture adaptation of John Carter, the Warlord of Mars. I was one of the few who did enjoy it, and would be open to a sequel. Stanton has released the title cards for some originally planned sequels, which you can see below! Could have been cool. Had big plans... pic.twitter.com/xtL0KuLyAf — andrew stanton (@andrewstanton) June 7, 2014 ...That would have led to even bigger plans. pic.twitter.com/GCXet6iZ3g — andrew stanton (@andrewstanton) June 7, 2014 John Carter was directed by Andrew Stanton and starred Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Willem Dafoe, Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston, James Purefoy, Dominic West, Thomas Haden Church and Ciarán Hinds. »

After seeing the first trailer yesterday for Heaven Is For Real, today we’ve got a first clip to share and some brand new stills. Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, Heaven Is For Real brings to the screen the true story that has inspired millions across the globe — that of a little boy’s extraordinary, life-changing experience, and his father’s search for the courage and conviction to share his son’s discovery with the world.
The versatile Greg Kinnear stars as Todd Burpo, a small-town businessman, volunteer firefighter and pastor struggling to make ends meet in a tough year for his family. After his bright young son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum in his feature film debut) is rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery, Todd and his wife Sonja (Kelly Reilly) are overjoyed by his miraculous survival. But they are wholly unprepared »

The international trailer for Heaven Is For Real, a film based on a book of a similar name (Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back) hit the web earlier today. The film, if you couldn’t guess already, details a little boy’s trip to heaven and back again. Quite the skill there, lil’ fella.
The film is already notably out in select regions, but the U.K. won’t get the film until later this month, so for any one of our regular britons, the trailer below might be of interest! It’s pretty powerful and admittedly it’s nice to see Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly and Thomas Haden Church back in something major and Randall Wallace back on the ball.
Heaven Is For Real comes out in U.K cinemas on the 30th May, is directed by »

Horses of God
Not Rated, 1 Hr., 55 Mins.
Four boys from the slums of Morocco mutate into suicide bombers in this tense drama, which uses the 2003 Casablanca terror attack as its backdrop. Director Nabil Ayouch hammers his points rather bluntly, but his filmmaking is hypnotic. The camera, initially jittery and handheld, slows to static shots, eerily matching the characters’ stagnant mindsets on their atrocious road to martyrdom. B+ –Joe McGovern
Not Rated, 1 Hr., 30 Mins.

Oh has been one of the show's stand-out performers throughout its 10-year run, but has starring in such a time-consuming role limited her career path until now?
To mark Oh's decision to escape the restraints of commercial network TV, Digital Spy has collected just a few other actors who perhaps should have 'done a George Clooney' by getting out early and made the transition to top movie star, not that movies are obviously better than TV nowadays of course.
This list only names actors who starred in long-running commercial network shows, rather than cable, as most shows in the latter have shorter seasons with longer gaps in between - just in case you were wondering where Jon Hamm and Alexander Skarsgård were...

Bruce (Thomas Haden Church) is a small-town ice plow driver in rural Quebec who has a bit too much to drink one night, heads out for a plow and accidentally hits and kills a man in the middle of the road. Panicked, and still more than a little drunk, he hides the body off the side of a road and heads into the woods in an effort to elude the police and the consequences they bring with them. He awakes the next morning in a plow almost out of gas and nearly buried in snow. Staying out of jail soon takes second place on his list of priorities right behind staying alive. As Bruce scrounges empty cabins for food and checks local papers for news on the dead man we see flashbacks to the days leading up to the accident. Details about his personal life and state of mind are revealed, and »

Ellie (Toni Collette), a journalist for music magazine Stax, has just been informed by her editor Giles (Oliver Platt) that she has one last chance to save her job. All she has to do is write a story about her rocker ex-boyfriend Matthew Smith who mysteriously disappeared years ago and is believed dead. Before his disappearance, he was a beloved music icon like Kurt Cobain, and since his apparent death, he has become a legend, influencing a whole generation of musicians. With the help of her ex-boyfriend Charlie (Thomas Haden Church), an aspiring documentary filmmaker, Ellie sets out to find out if Matthew is still alive and if he is, where he has been hiding all these years. Her attempts to find closure, however, are complicated by her feelings for Lucas (Ryan Eggold), an up-and-coming singer-songwriter.

In the recently released Whitewash, Thomas Haden Church plays a snowplow driver in an isolated region of Quebec whose life already isn't going as planned, and things only get worse when he accidentally kills a man with his plow. So he does the one thing that seems like a good decision at the time: hide the body deep in the woods and hope no one ever finds it. As you can guess, things don't really go as expected, sending Church on a torturous journey where he's battling both his own guilt and the paranoia that he might be discovered. And as you can see from the exclusive clip below, Whitewash does a great job of infusing the thriller side of the story with some comedy. In this scene you can see Church's character trying to refuel for the night at a...

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid), and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. Whitewash is a slow-burn Canadian thriller about a man (Thomas Haden Church) who takes a drunken drive behind the wheel of a snowplow and ends up hitting and killing another man in the street. He hides the body and heads into the woods to dodge the police, but his attempts to avoid detection conflict with his need to survive the harshly cold winter. The film moves between his struggle in the woods and flashbacks to before the accident where we discover that the man he killed was actually a recent acquaintance. The »

It’s nowhere near as blackly funny as it wants to be, but Thomas Haden Church is strangely compelling as a man befuddled by the vagaries of fate. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

Out one night in wintry Quebec on a drunken joyride in his snowplow — as you do — Thomas Haden Church (John Carter) accidentally hits and kills a guy walking in the middle of a blizzard. So he scoops the body up in the plow, hides it in a snowbank off the side of the road, and retreats into the woods to escape the cops and his guilty conscience by living in the cab of the plow. As you do. Eighty minutes later, the final line of the film suggests that everything that has come in the interim should have been a lot »
