Tarzan 2016: the negativity begins already?

http://thejohncarterfiles.com/2015/10/uh-oh-here-it-comes-the-tarzan-negativity-narrative-has-begun/ One may beginning to wonder if Hollywwod seriously has something against Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations. In a Hollywwod Reporter article of October the 14th of 2015, even if not a single frame has been released officially, the journalist Kim Masters shows a quite dark presentation out of the yet-to-come David Yates' Tarzan: not only is the movie unfinished, because David Yates was urgently required to helm Warner Bros' Harry Potter...

Tarzan 2016: at least a more substantial feedback from the test screening!

Even if we don't have the whole details, here is what an IMDB user said about the April test screening, for which two short comments had been posted, one positive, one less so. http://normantrayeng.canalblog.com/archives/2015/04/19/31914436.html http://normantrayeng.canalblog.com/archives/2015/04/21/31926108.html This time these are comments from a Black American man aged between 25 and 44 (why is it important? Because the movie features touchy matters about African slavery in Congo during the 19th century), whose father... [Lire la suite]

More interest for a #JohnCarter tv series?

That's what says Jim Sullos anyway, president of ERB inc, in the l'article linked below. The recent financial failure of John Carter seems to paralyze movie producers, even if they still show interest in the property. "There may be more interest in a television series than a sequel to the film." Nothing official yet of course, The rights for a live-action or animated adaptation are still available. http://www.sfvbj.com/news/2015/jul/24/preview-mars-or-bust/

The petition for #JohnCarter 2 available again!

For a few weeks the petition for John Carter 2 had been closed. Did it reach a 3-years limit after it was launched? Whatever the reason, it's now accessible again for whomever is willing to sign it, it can't hurt! We're currently at 13,338 signatures + 1,960 gathered from conventions at the beginning of the campaign in 2012, so a sum of 15,298. Let's hope this amount goes flying in the next months, who knows? "We still live." ... [Lire la suite]

Kerry Conran's demo reel for #JohnCarter of Mars in HD

Between the first attempt at an adaptation in 1936 and the one finally released in 2012, John Carter knew quite a few false starts. Juste before Disney bought the rights again, those were at Paramount. Robert Rodriguez was supposed to direct the movie in the beginning. A friend of Harry Knowles, the founder of the famous Aint'It Cool News website, and knowing about his passion for "A Princess of Mars", he made him hired as a consultant/co-producer. Rodriguez left the project... because of Sin City. He wanted Frank Miller to be... [Lire la suite]

John Carter: the best videos on Youtube

First thing first, the trailers made by the awesome Michael D. Sellers, great admirer of Edgar Rice Burroughs and independent Hollywood filmmaker.

Article from 2015 May the 8th: 5 movies that really deserve a sequel

It's been now more than three years since the release of John Carter, and we still have from time to time articles which speak of this movie as one which deserves a sequel: case in point today, 2015 May the 8th: "The next movie that deserves a sequel is "John Carter" which was about this earthling who was able to go to Mars and became a hero. However, it was one of the biggest flops in the Hollywood industry as an estimated amount of $250 million went into the production but the movie only garnered $280 million when it was...

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]
