John Carter 2: other studios interested?

According to a "well-informed source" of John Sagar, responsible for the Facebook page "The Fantastic World of Edgar Rice Burroughs", ERB Incorporated would like to know now if Disney can make a final decision regarding the future of John Carter. If they answer a definitive "no" to the sequels, then ERB inc would ask them to relinquish what's left of their option (8 months until March of 2015). It seems like many parties would be interested for making a sequel if Disney let go. All this is of... [Lire la suite]

Neuromancer: 30 years already, and where is that movie?

Among my very favorite novels, there's Neuromancer by William Gibson, released on July the 1st of 1984 in the United States. It's a novel I re-read regularly, and each time I am taken by its peculiar atmosphere, very impressionistic. It's all by itself the founding novel of an entire science-fiction subgenre, named Cyberpunk. The cyberpunk is a wonderful playground, the heroes are in general at the bottom level, people that try to survive before giant corporations, as powerful as unhuman, and artificial intelligences in...

Cinemablend.com: 6 Reasons Disney Needs To Resurrect The John Carter Franchise!

http://www.cinemablend.com/new/6-Reasons-Disney-Needs-Resurrect-John-Carter-Franchise-43550.html Excellent article which lists the reasons why Disney should ressurect the John Carter franchise! 1) Andrew Stanton and Taylor Kitsch want to make the sequels! It can seem of little importance, but it's not, especially in Andrew Stanton's case of course. He originated everything. He was the one who suggested to Dick Cook, then President of Disney Studios, to get the licence, which Paramount had just let go of. Stanton... [Lire la suite]

Tim Burton's Batman is one quarter of a century old this monday, June the 23rd!

We sometimes forget how much of a desert was the superhero movie genre in the 80ies. Superman has been tremendously succesful already thanks to the 1978 and 1980 movies. But in spite of them, since Superman 2, you could begin to see parodic elements due to the direction of Richard Lester. The fall was hard with Superman 3 and 4, without even mentioning Supergirl. The few seriousness that was featured, thanks to Richard Donner and his writer Tom Mankiewitz, had already left the genre as soon as it was introduced....

John Carter: the French ALLOCINE doesn't like, the viewers love it!

2014, June the 3rd : the French website Allociné give its advices of movies to see on TV. The three not to be missed are: Lethal Weapon 2, Promised Land and Zarafa. The movie NOT to see is John Carter, with this moronic critic:  “Adapted from Edgar Rice Burroughs by WALL-E’s dad, the movie had everything to be 2012’s Avatar. At least on paper, because on screen the feature film (which hurt VERY BADLY Disney’s accounts) offers a run-of-the-mill visual universe, an uninteresting scenario and a completely bland hero. Too bad…”... [Lire la suite]
