    There's going to be a Twitter campaign this Saturday, May 9 (the on-year anniversary of the film's release), to try to show Disney the fan support and waiting revenue for a John carter sequel. The goal is to get on Twitter starting at 10 a.m. Eastern Time on Saturday and use #JohnCarterSequel and #JohnCarter to keep making comments, respond to comments and re-tweet for a little over 2 hours. The idea is to do this while watching the movie, if you have it or can otherwise get it (it's available for sale--including instant download--from Amazon and on demand from Verizon FIOS and Starz).
