October the 20th: the John Carter rights revert back to ERB inc

Here we are, the annoucement has come, ERB inc got back six months before the official ending all the rights of John Carter, Disney let them go. Of course the annoucement isn't entirely unexpected. John Carter lost a lot of money, even if not as much as what was announced two years ago, but it seems that the rediscovery of the movie by many fans since its release was not enough to convince the Mouse to authorize a sequel. What does that mean now? ERB inc will now seek another partner to pursue the adventure, under... [Lire la suite]

John Carter: new opportunities on the horizon?

A message from our “campaign chief” Jan Austin on the “Take me Back to Barsoom” Facebook page, which seems to point to the end of the hope for a sequel, but that other venues could materialize on the horizon:   “Yes, starting Monday, there will be new directions and new strategies beginning for John Carter, ERB, Inc, and the Back To Barsoom Group! Sohrab Osati and I met with Jim Sullos (the head of ERB Inc) a couple of weeks ago and will be meeting with him in the next week or so to come up with ideas of where our Back To... [Lire la suite]

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]

Keep on with the effort! http://www.change.org/p/alan-horn-chairman-walt-disney-pixar-studios-bring-back-john-carter-take-us-back-to-barsoom It seems that many parties currently give a thought about the sequel, if John Sagar on Facebook is well informed. Nothing official as of now, but it's good to know that John Carter...
