Another reaction from the Burbank screening for Tarzan (2016)... not that positive!

A second attendee, from last night's Burbank screening, gave his thoughts about David Yates' Tarzan. He was unfortunately less positive than the first viewer from Chicago. He thought the first scene was great, but Alexander Skarsgard didn't appeal to him as Tarzan. He thought Margot Robbie and Christoph Waltz were great though. Stay tuned! https://www.facebook.com/tarzantheuntamed?fref=ts

First reaction to David Yates' Tarzan screening, and it's positive!

Source: Tarzan the Untamed Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/tarzantheuntamed?ref=ts&fref=ts A first reaction to the Tarzan the Untamed screening, from a woman ("A" on Twitter) who attended it... in part, since apparently power went out in the theater during it, and the audience didn't see all of the movie. Obviously, there are no details yet, but it's quite positive nonetheless, she liked the movie and Alexander Skarsgard. No special effects seemed to be done yet (which A found refreshing!). It could indicate a... [Lire la suite]

Test screenings for Tarzan (2016)

While we are at more than one year of the planned release of David Yates' Tarzan in July of 2016, Warner Bros already organized at least two test screenings, this Saturday the 18th at Chicago, and the 20th of April at Burbank. Let's hope for amazingly positive feedback! EDIT: First reaction there, and positive! http://normantrayeng.canalblog.com/archives/2015/04/19/31914436.html  (source: Facebook page Tarzan the Untamed) https://www.facebook.com/tarzantheuntamed?fref=ts

1.5 million viewers for John Carter in France yerterday!

The host of a radio show about medias talked this morning about a "surprise" regarding the French channel W9: John Carter gathered 1.5 million viewers (a 6% share) yesterday, while Pirates of the Carribean 3 had 1.2 million viewers on TMC. John Carter only has 400 000 less viewers than a channel that is considered a big one, France 3! An excellent score thus, for one of the little tv channels. We can only dream about what could have been the score on a more important one, but it's still a... [Lire la suite]

John Carter on French channel W9 tonight!

Here is today the first French nationwide airing on a non-paying TV channel, named W9, of John Carter, tonight on Monday, 2015 the 13th at 8h50pm! Let's hope for good ratings, even if unfortunately it's on one of the minor channels. The other movies aired tonight are Elektra on the D8 channel (one of the worst superhero movies ever!) and Pirates of the Carribean 3 on TMC. So good luck to John Carter this evening! We'll see if that airing will provoke new searches about the eventual sequels on... [Lire la suite]

A John Carter roleplaying game for Christmas? (+a Tarzan & Jane animated show)

Jim Sullos, president of ERB inc, announced at Wondercon in Anaheim that a British company will release a John Carter roleplaying game for Christmas of 2015! No precision yet about the said company, but I only see Cubicle 7 which is currently releasing games about licensed properties, like Doctor Who and The One Ring (based on The Lord of the Rings). Mongoose Publishing is also an English company, but they don't seem to buy licences as of late (the last to date being  Judge Dredd but which at the time... [Lire la suite]

A John Carter toy? Well, almost...

 In December was aired the short-length "Toy Story That Time Forgot". Not only is the title an homage to Edgar Rice Burroughs and his "People that Time Forgot" (which was adapted as a movie), the short features this character: Goliathon, whose design is furiously familiar:                                                         So, even if Andrew...

Tarzan 2016 : When History meets a story

Among the most astounding elements of the future David Yates movie is that the plot is based on anything but fantasy. The characters played by Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson really existed!  In 1885, the king of Belgium Léopold II reigns over Congo with an iron hand. While he appears as an enlightened leader eager to bring civilization to Africans, in fact he makes them slaves, thanks to adventurers and unscrupulous henchmen, among themselves Captain Léon Rom (Waltz). The author Joseph Conrad (who spent 3 years in Congo... [Lire la suite]
