John Carter Trailer

Well, here is the teaser trailer for Disney's new John Carter movie...

We remain optimistic. It looks good. And they have Willem Dafoe doing the voice for Tars Tarkas which could help to bring the big, green, four-armed cgi-thark to life...

  2. @Trey: Yeah...we're in agreement on that score, but hey, it'll probably look nice. The comics from Dynamite are actually pretty decent.

    Adapting Burroughs to the silver screen is challenging for modern film-makers mostly because they just plain do not 'get' the old pulps, nor what Burroughs was doing, or where he was coming from...but that's pretty much par for the course and it isn't only E.R.B. that gets his work mangled in the process...
