The petition for John Carter 2 at 70 signatures from the 15,000!

A Frenchman is the last signer to date, bringing the total online to 12,970 signatures. Thanks to François Adam! Adding the 1,960 signatures gathered from US conventions, we're getting 14,930, so 70 signatures from the 15,000 listed as a maximum on Change.org. I say "listed as a maximum" because apparently it's a goal fixed by the website, and not necessarily the one envisioned by the creator of the petition, Jan Austin ; in truth there's no upper limit! Every signature is therefore welcomed beyond this... [Lire la suite]

Maybe the greatest painting ever created about John Carter, by Joe Jusko

Joe Jusko creates for many years now, with an amazing talent paintings about every kind of characters, and which is great is that he's also a great fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs (born by the way precisely 138 years ago, On september the first of 1875). For Dynamite Entertainment he makes covers, including this one, from Warlord of Mars #5, which is maybe one of the greatest paintings ever created for this universe.

A never-seen-before picture of the John Carter shooting courtesy of Andrew Stanton

A web user on Twitter was recently complaining that he always saw the same John Carter images. Well, it's only one movie after all, so inevitably the same pictures repeat themselves necessarily. So @JohnCarterFilm asked Andrew Stanton if he had never-seen-before pictures to share, and he posted the one below. Here is therefore before your astonished eyes the view Tal Hajus had from his throne over the arena:

So, the Martians, naked or not?

How many times do I read on the internet some comments, both in Molière and Shakespeare’s tongue, like « oh she has too many clothes here, Dejah Thoris », or else « everybody knows the Barsoomians walk completely naked, it’s written in the novels ». This belief leads to many drawings of Dejah Thoris with very few things on, if not completely nude, and some illustrations of Barsoomian soldiers with the full package in plain sight…  How did we get there? The fault to Burroughs, who didn’t describe that... [Lire la suite]

Babylon 5: the original plan

Many fans wonder what would have Babylon 5 looked like if Joseph Michael Strazynski had followed his original plan.

SEASON 2:* Commander Sinclair is still in charge of the station* His Fiance, Catherine Sakai, continues... [Lire la suite]

How did I miss this video at the time? Here is below a link to a more than enthusiastic criticism from French movie critic  Yannick Dahan (critic, but also co-director and co-writer on the French zombie movie La Horde), with an intervention by Thierry Chèze, recorded on March the 7th and 8th of 2012 during the "Quotidienne du cinéma" ("Movie Daily"), on the defunct tv channel TPS Star: http://youtu.be/tqU59E1_dq0 Even if Yannick lets his enthusiasm getting in the way on certain facts (Burroughs as a...
