I want to take a moment to inform you all of the John Carter sequel campaign on facebook, they are gathering signatures to send petitions, both physical and from change.org
here is the facebook page
and here is the petitionRead more >
Your eyes do not deceive you. This little beastie runs faster than a race car, has rows of razor-sharp teeth, an amazing sense of smell, and it can easily tunnel through the ground with it's 10 powerful legs. As you'll see in the handy info-graphic below, Woola is the name of John Carter's loyal companion, a type of creature called a Calot. Posted below that you'll see an extended clip from the film. It's an action-packed clip that really goes to show that having a Calot at your side is pretty clutch when you're the only human on Mars.
Bummer it's fictional. Hopefully my desire to have one of these as a pet (named Reggie) doesn't develop into something like Pandora depression. Enjoy the new video and please vote in the poll below.

The definition of hype?
Probably a nine-second clip of a trailer--a trailer of a trailer, basically. But that doesn't mean it's hype for nothing--John Carter of Mars will have a trailer during the Superbowl...and we all know the Superbowl doesn't play around with bad commercials or pointless trailers.
There's a rumor that you could win free Superbowl tickets for next year if you pay close attention to some sort of "hidden message" within this clip--any guesses for what it might be? I'm totally stumped!

I am still sketchy the the whole "embedding" thing but here it is
BAM the best trailer for the film yet ^ _ ^Read more >
I recently saw the Japanese trailer
I WAS EXCITED AMAZED WOWED , it was nearly A PERFECT TRAILER, I hope to GOD they released it in english
I PRAY SO MUCH
And I was amazed to see our beloved martian glyphs in the movie in some sort of ancient ruin
SO I TRANSLATED THEM TO GAIN THE WONDROUS INCITE INTO ANDREW STANTONS LOVELY VARIATION OF BARSOOM, what secrets what wonder what fascinating new things would be revealed about this amazing world?
I have never been more disappointing in my entire life, not only do these not form english words, they dont form words that could exist in any language, they are unpronounceable . . . it is just a jumble of non-sense letters
I hope to god that they fix this before the movie is released…

On March 9, John Carter will be in theaters, and so we've got a long time to anticipate how the film will look in comparison to the books. If you're a Barsoom fan, you're probably wondering how the film will do the fantastic series justice.
Indeed, the white apes, the scary creatures that John Carter first battles with upon landing on Barsoom, will be in the film. But will they be the same as they were described in the books?
No. Andrew Stanton reveals that the white apes will be much larger in the film, instead of looking like "oversized gorillas" as they were portrayed in the books. In addition, they will be more present overall in the film, mentioned more, and featured more.
So what do you think? Is Stanton's version of the white ape a…Read more >

Okay, I think it is time I compiled my thoughts on how I feel the series should be handled by Disney. there is ALOT of great material to work from with Edgar Rice Burroughs Mars . . . but some not so good . . . but here is a full outline of how I think they can best handle the material
First off we have A Princess of Mars, as of now I think disney is doing a fine fine job of adapting it, they have made some changes turning Therns into shapeshifters and the main bad guys I think will have some positive effects.
Second we have The Gods of Mars, interesting challenge with the upgraded status of the therns. I think that the First Born should occupy the role of the Therns! The Yellow martians should be brought in early, and never as an antagonis…

I can hardly wait for the movie. I have been waiting for a John Carter movie since the 70'sRead more >
So I got to thinking, with todays release of John Carter world of mars
(the official movie prequel comic)
That I would change the background to something . . . a little more . . . appropriate
so I put in a request for this background at the logo creation wiki and this is what happened (thank you Tama63 )
I had to alter it so that Carter was split appropriately
but I think it looks pretty good ^ _ ^
this is a link to the original image ^ _ ^
I believe that this is also the first issue cover, the cotton candy carter image I think was ditched after a negative reaction
EDIT : Horay . .. I fixed it :D
now it looks pretty goodRead more >
For those of you eagerly awaiting the release of John Carter, here is a little tidbit for you--Buzz magazine has released a photograph of Taylor Kitsch as John Carter. Wonder what he's looking up at, huh? Looks like we're just going to have to wait till the movie comes out to know for sure.
Do you think Taylor Kitsch makes a convincing John Carter? What are you most looking forward to seeing in the film? Comment below and let us know!

I first heard about a "John Carter of Mars" film project some years ago, when rumors were abound that it was being set up at Pixar. This turned out to not be the case, but the rumors started as the project was being helmed by Andrew Stanton. Stanton has worked at Pixar for many years, and is one of the chief creative minds behind the likes of Finding Nemo and WALL-E. These are two of my favorite movies, so my interest was piqued.
I lost track of the project for a while, and hadn't heard anything about its development until a trailer hit the web. As someone not familiar with the John Carter series of books, it gave me a fresh look at what I might expect from this fantastic tale. I'm not usually into the fantasy genre, although I did love the Lor…Read more >
