Ok so I have been reading about this John Carter movie. It sounds pretty cool.
For those that don’t know John Carter story line is considered the seed story for much of the SciFi genre we enjoy. I was surprised to learn that John Carter is the most reference character in science fiction (he is referenced in other stories as the first Mars colonist, or has colony, ships, etc after him).
The basic storyline for Disney’s John Carter sounds pretty similar to Avatar which got me thinking why did they just pay half a billion to do Avatar world when they have their own scifi enviro property in the works.
Rumor is John Carter cost close to a billion dollars to make, the only licensed products will be high end collectables. There are basic storyline sketches for 2 more movies.
All the reviews I have read have said that this film is visually stunning…hope I have my 70 inch HD tv when it comes out for rental.
