John Carter and the Princess of Mars wouldn't be any more clunky then the titles for the Pirates movies and allows you to work off the titles of the original novels.
I read somewhere on Comicbookmovie news they gave us an explanation.
Calling it John Carter and the princess of mars wouldn't draw in the boys or something because it sounds to girl or something and they couldn't call it John Carter of Mars because woman wouldn't be into it or something. So the compromise is John Carter. If I ever find the article, I'll post it.
But yeah, REALLY hoping we get a sequel I really do because the Alien genre is kind of dying as of Late. Moms need mars did BADLY, GL did kind of bad depending on how you look at it, Cowboys and aliens are almost in the same boat as Green Lantern, and then there's what people say how alien flicks are as good as they use to be.
