John Carter

John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) might call it Mars, but those who live there call it Barsoom. When the former Civil War captain inexplicably finds himself on the Red Planet, he meets the likes of Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins), who are engaged in a battle of epic proportions.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How does this film depict crowd mentality? What is the danger of this kind of thinking?

What elements of reality does science fiction allow authors and screenwriters to disregard? What powers does John Carter acquire on Mars that he did not have on Earth?

This movie is based on the novel A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
