Across the two films, we have star names including Taylor Kitsch, Bruce Willis, Bryan Cranston, Dwayne Johnson… the list goes on. But despite the impressive feats (and a humorous shared connection) between the two, only one of these movies can survive into the next round. Which will it be? Step into the arena and find out!

(4) “John Carter” Vs. (5) “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”
Fans have been waiting for a very long time (like, nearly one hundred years) for a big-screen adaptation of Civil War veteran John Carter’s adventures on Barsoom. Taylor Kitsch is the man to bring Carter to life, under the watchful eye of Pixar favorite Andrew Stanton. Fans came out to support “John Carter” very early and very often in the MTV Movie Brawl, but a surprising last-minute surge of votes also poured out on the “G.I. Joe” sequel’s behalf. That “Retaliation” trailer was all kinds of awesome, immediately washing away the bad taste of “Rise of Cobra” from many fans’ mouths. The battle of “John” versus “Joe” is sure to be an epic showdown, if for no other reason than it represents a battle between “Friday Night Lights” favorites Taylor Kitsch and Adrianne Palicki… though this time, “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” won’t hold up for one of these competitors.
