From Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”—a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.

    Look at that cast list! All I’ve heard about this film so far is a) The Ever Decreasing Name, b) it’s some Pixar guy’s first live-action effort and recently c) the word is that it’s going to bomb. I know it’s meant to be a big budget special effects blockbuster, but it wouldn’t hurt to trumpet the fact they’ve got half of Rome in it, plus the ubiquitous Mark Strong and Samantha bloomin’ Morton! Willem Dafoe! McNulty from The Wire! Hope they get to do some acting in amongst the CGI and swashbuckling. I’m actually interested again.

    The books are awesome! I’ve been excited to see this movie since it was first announced. From the previews I’ve seen I think it will be good. They’ve taken some liberties with ERB’s descriptions of ships and cities, etc but most of the Barsoomians seem to be correct.
