John Carter - Trailer

Combo Sci-Fi and Fantasy made up of mostly elements also found in the PEPLUM genre, this is the first trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs' JOHN CARTER OF MARS series of pulpy books. An endless number of comic book artists and painters have created works based/inspired on the books which has a fervent cult following. I've posted some examples on this blog, including the one posted just below (Warlord of Mars) and also here and here. Will it live up to the vision of ERB or the comic book artists' imagination?

Being from Disney it'll be watered down some, but overall I think it'll be very well done. I'm looking forward to it!

At least he looks in good shape. I assume that he can jump so high because of the lower gravity on mars, giving him the superman effect thing. AS LONG AS THAT GUY SINGING ISN'T EVER HEARD FROM AGAIN, I will watch the film.
