A Princess of Mars by Hardcover Theater, a magnificent adaptation! #JohnCarter

If someone had told me that the best live adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' A Princess of Mars would be a play, I would not have believed it. And yet there seems there are still some small miracles in this world, like this adaptation crafted in 2006. It was conceived by Eric Schroer from Hardcover Theater in Minneapolis. The fiming of the play took place in the presence of quite a hard-edged audience, namely Edgar Rice Burroughs fans! This work of art is a true ode to the power of... [Lire la suite]

Andrew Stanton still thinks about #JohnCarter ! And those movies that didn't deserve to fail

Andrew Stanton Still thinks about John Carter, it’s a rather small bit if news, but there’s always that! Since it’s seemingly proven that there’s an underground lake on Mars, for real, Andrew Stanton tweeted: “And plot points of GODS’ [of Mars] just keep becoming a reality”. Indeed, since one of the discoveries fait John Carter makes in the sequel to A Princess of Mars, is that there’s an underground sea on Mars, the Omean Ocean, which can only be reached by airship, though a vertical pit ina  mountain (an ancient volcano?). We... [Lire la suite]

An IMBD user (International Movie Data Base) whose name is listed as septembermorn321 had some fun listing on November the 30th of 2016 with his/her choice for the John Carter sequel, that he/she named "The Return of John Carter" instead of "Gods of Mars".

A #JohnCarter video game proposal from 2012!

While I was searching for some John Carter poster image for the fifth anniversary of the movie's release, I stumbled upon Yan Le Pon's blog, a French storyboarder from the town of Lyon, who apparently proposed a video game to Disney Interactive before January of 2012, proposal that was rejected. On the link below you will find 15 storyboard pages that detail a rescue of Dejah Thoris. Also featured are Woola and some Tharks. Very promising, go visit this blog! "Here is a storyboard for a video game project done at ELB studio for an... [Lire la suite]

Last night I dreamed about the #JohnCarter 2 set!

Last night I had a dream. Usually I don’t remember my dreams at all. Sometimes I remember having dreamed something but without recalling any detail. And some dreams are so powerful you remember everything when you wake up. This is, of course, one of the latter I will write about!  I was, in short, on the John Carter 2 set. It was in my hometown, in France. I had noticed, while walking by, a whole crew building movie sets. And as John Carter in the novels knows instantly that he’s on Mars from the moment he steps on it, I knew... [Lire la suite]

A Carson of Venus movie in the works !

Thanks to a poster named Nerdvana, we learned the great news announced during the ERB Inc Comic Con panel this year: a movie could be produced out of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels starring his hero Carson Napier. There are four novels, and a short story (even if the fourth novel is composed in fact of four short stories). The movie would adapt the first two, Pirates of Venus and Lost on Venus, which form indeed a whole story. The producers are Harry Kloor and Matthew Rhodes. The treatment is written and the...

#JohnCarter 2 and 3: the last hurrah announced for September

Andrew Stanton, when someone asked about a John Carter 2, recently answered "Not for me. Maybe an event in the fall". It seems like this event could be a video recorded by Stanton, revealing what would have been the two sequels to John Carter. The video would be recorded in September, to be released on line later on. This would mark the end of the saga for this movie, which was as cursed as it was loved way after its release by many of its viewers, and that would be a wonderful way to thank all the die-hard fans for their...

John Carter: 4 years today! #JohnCarter

It's been 4 years already that John Carter was released in all movie theaters in France, this very 7th of March 2012! At this time of the day, as I wrote in my post last year, I was hurrying towards a theater at the Place Clichy in Paris to be there on first showing, with my "Cycle de Mars volume 1" book in my bag. I had taken the afternoon off just for this event. Never distance seemed longer than in this day, matching my impatience. We were few in the room, unfortunately. At the end of... [Lire la suite]

Princess of Mars, the other #JohnCarter !

You will find below a picture featuring the main characters of John Carter, with their counterparts in Princess of Mars. Princess of Mars, what is it? If John Carter is indeed the first theatrical adaptation of A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, it's not the first adaptation in all. This "honor" is bestowed to a direct-to-video movie released in 2009, Princess of Mars. It was produced by the Asylum company, which made a specialty of being "inspired" by movie successes of the moment to release their own cheap versions. When... [Lire la suite]
