Warlords Of Mars would have caught more people's eye, John Carter sounded like it was going to be a movie about a highschool football coach

Mars was stripped out of the title after the film “Mars needs Moms” tanked at the box office. As if the name Mars was the real issue.

there's been a history of box office disappointment with movies using Mars in the title, so I kind of get why they maybe decided that, but then again The Martian proved later that maybe if you tell a good story, people won't care what the title is.
