Topic: John Carter of Mars

http://www.ottens.co.uk/gatehouse/thumb/index-166.png

The latest “Character of the Week” challenge over at the Conceptart.org Forums demanded a depiction of “John Carter of Mars,” Edgar Rice Burroughs’ famous science fiction hero.

The artwork on display here, created by one “jshamburger,” we considered the finest entry, showing Carter in his full glory; the perfect hero and antebellum Southern gentleman, like Burroughs intended. Head over to this Thread to contemplate all submissions.

There's some really good art there.  I'm not sure whether this one is my favorite.  It's very He-Man meets the 300 in my opinion.

Looks like John Carter of Mars is in production for a 2012 release.

Yup, dude that played Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is playing John Carter.
(and the girl that played Wolverine's love interest is now playing his love interest [my brain retains too much useless information I swear])

Re: John Carter of Mars

This is shaping up to be a pretty good movie.  There's some good names in the mix - including Mark Strong - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0835016/

the trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be

The movie trailer has now been released and I say, it does look quite promising.
I was surprised to see it's a Disney movie though!

Quite nice vision of Barsoom. The airships are poetic.

The dialogue, on the other hand, sounded like it had been copy-pasted from Jackson's LotR movies. Hollywood these days doesn't pay enough attention to good scriptwriting.

I walk through the dry hills
I hold the little girl's hand
I wrestle the wildfire
I share the pain
Because if not I, who? If not now, when?
